Takstang Monastery (Tiger's Nest)

Perched precariously on a cliff face, the Takstang Monastery is the No. 1 "must-see" place in Bhutan. All our Bhutan trips include the rather stiff hike up to the Tiger's Nest, which is just a short distance from Paro.



Considering Paro has Bhutan's only International Airport, Paro township is more like a large village, and the delightful Paro Valley means that rural Bhutan is right outside your hotel door. The National Museum and Drugyel Dzong are well worth a visit.



With just 70,000 or so inhabitants, Bhutan's largest urban area is a capital like no other. There are no traffic lights, for starters; the locals don't like them! The giant Buddha statue and the stunning Tashichho Dzong are among the many attractions.



The mighty fortress of Punakha Dzong is rightly the "star", but there's more to the Punakha Valley. A walk up to Khamsum Yuelley Namgyal Chorten is highly recommended. Great views, farmsteads, tiny villages, and friendly locals.



The four valleys of Bumthang, the heartland of Bhutan, may just be some of the most beautiful in the world. Forested mountain slopes and a rural nirvana.



The verdant Haa Valley, with its steep-sided, forested mountain slopes, remains one of the least visited places in Western Bhutan. Home to nomadic herders and the odd "across the border with Tibet" smuggler.



Also known as the Phobjikha Valley, it is famous for being the wintering grounds of the rare and revered Black-necked Crane and for its festival. October to early Spring is the time to visit to see the birds that have migrated from Tibet.



Located on a steep hillside with stunning views of the valley below, Trongsa Dzongkha is dominated by the amazing Trongsa Dzong. There's also the Thruepang Palace and the Ta Dzong watchtower. Hotels in Trongsa.



The people of the mountain village of Laya and surrounding area are ethnically distinct. Visiting Laya (at the moment) does involve a couple of days of trekking, but a jeep road is under way, so please contact us for the latest.
