Flying to Bhutan in one of the national airlines would be a breath-taking moment for you as the flight descends into a beautiful global village between the two mountains. If you get a seat on the window side of the plane and if weather permits, you would be able to get spectacular views of the high mountain Himalayan ranges.

Thimphu is Bhutan’s capital city and center of government, religion and commerce. And home to civil servants, expatriates and people from all walks of life. Thimphu as the capital city is founded on the traditional and modern blends of architectural design and further it adds glory as Thimphu is only the capital in the world without traffic signals. And more interestingly, Thimphu is constantly nurtured by the green vegetation coverage which remains evergreen city in the eyes of the travelers.

The places you don’t want to miss in Bhutan. The white tall structure built in 1974 to loving memory of His Majesty the Third king of Bhutan is the prominent landmark of Thimphu. It is a four-storey tall white building, containing statues and iconography of deities from complex tantric teachings and serves as an important place of worship for the people from all walks of life.

The fact that Bhutan is a Buddhist nation is the presence of the largest sitting Buddha ( one of the biggest sitting Buddha in the world) statue in the country is perched on the hillock overlooking the Thimphu valley. And, the Buddha statue is facing the city in his promising gaze in the hope for the liberation of the sentient beings and constantly reminding us that everything is subject to change, there is nothing in the world that stands still.

Leaving Thimphu the road climbs steeply up through pine forest at the height of 3,050 reaching Dochula pass adorned with 108 stupas. If the weather is clear, you will see beautiful snowcapped mountains.

Dzongs (Fortress) are living history of Bhutan. For over three hundred years they have built on strategic points mostly on mountain ridges, hill tops, and between the rivers to serve as an effective defence against an attack or invasion. One such finest example of the Dzong is the magnificent Punakha Dzong situated between Pho chu (Male River) and Mo chu (Female River).

The visit to Bhutan is incomplete if you don't pay your visit to the famous site of Taktshang or Tiger’s Nest Monastery which is every visitor’s dream and wish of the every Buddhist and non- Buddhist faith to visit the site once in their life time. Tiger’s Nest is the most amazing structure ever built in Bhutan hanging in middle of the rocky cliff. Legends surround the fact that the place was founded by Guru Padmasambhava in 8th century when he flew riding on a tigress from eastern Bhutan. This will no doubt be one of the highlights of your stay in Bhutan.
