Thimphu Valley is one of the most breath-taking sites to visit in Bhutan because of the stunning views it provides. You can have a panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks enclosing the valley while the valley stands by the banks of the Wang Chhu River.
Being the capital city and the most modern one in the country, Thimphu is the heart of Bhutan. It is home to the Royal family and has a rich culture for you to experience. Not only can you enjoy the natural beauty of the valley but also visit a horde of exciting places like the Buddha Dordenma statue, Tashichho Dzong, the National Memorial Chorten, and Druk Wangyal Chortens.
Moreover, you must not miss the Folk Heritage Museum, National Textile Museum, and the Weekend Market. Thimphu is genuinely entire Bhutan presented in a concise form, both in terms of nature and culture.
The moment you land in Paro, you are greeted by the captivating beauty of the city of Paro. Bhutan’s only international airport is in Paro, lies beside the Paro River, and the ethereal beauty of the land is undoubtedly going to steal your heart away.
Furthermore, the true beauty of Bhutan lies in small cities like Paro, where the green valleys and the lofty, white mountains make a heavenly sight to behold. The city also has traditional Bhutanese houses, curio shops, and cafes to give you the characteristic taste of Bhutan.
When you are in Paro, do not forget to visit the Taktsang Monastery or the Tiger Nest Monastery located just above the Paro Valley. People believe it to be the holy place of meditation for Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava, who brought Buddhism to Bhutan. It is a cultural heritage site for the people in Bhutan. Sailani Tours include Paro in their Bhutan travel packages.
Punakha was the ancient capital of Bhutan, the seat of all religious activities prior to Thimphu. It sits at the junction of the Mo Chhu and the Pho Chhu River, known as the Mother River and Father River, respectively. The gorgeous Punakha Dzong is located right at the river junction and is one of the best structures you will find in Bhutan. It is the religious and administrative centre of the city.
It has been recently restored to glory and looks beautiful during the Punakha festival. Indulge yourself in the marvellous beauty of the azure mountains and green valleys below while listening to the gurgling waters of the Mo Chhu and the Pho Chhur Rivers.
If you are looking for some of the best views of the Gasa peaks, you must visit the Khamsum Yulley Namgyel Chorten. It resembles peace and stability. You must include this ancient city in your tour packages.
Phuentsholing is called the Gateway to Bhutan and is another must-see spot from where you can enjoy the serenity of nature. The place is very near to the Indian town of Jaigaon in North Bengal and is a commercial centre. It is also a melting pot of Indian, Bhutanese, and Nepalese cultures, which is a beautiful thing to experience.
The Bhutan Gate is the entry and exit point from India to Bhutan and vice versa. The woodcraft of the gate is a wonder to see. The Zangdo Pelri Lhakhang is a quiet monastery that is a must-visit for some spiritual calmness. You can find Guru Rinpoche’s replica here along with 8 idols depicting the life of Buddha.
After some quiet moments in the monastery and taking a round around the prayer wheels, go for a stroll by the adjacent park or reach the Torsa riverside where the hillocks and the confluence of the river streams make it a beautiful site to spend a few hours.
The confluence of the best of natural beauty and a rich culture makes Bhutan as imperial as it is known to be. Bhutan is one of the best places for nature lovers, especially those who are forever in love with the mountains.
