Post breakfast, drive toward Punakha, stop at Dochula Pass (3,100 m), where on a sunny day, you can get stunning views of the Himalayan ranges. The Dochu La Pass is probably the best known mountain pass in Bhutan. Located at an altitude of 3150 meter above sea level, the Dochu La Pass is about 30 kilometer away from the capital city Thimphu and the road to Punakha. On a clear day the pass offers visitors a spectacular view of the majestic eastern Himalayan Ranges. A cup of hot coffee or tea at the pass has almost become part of tradition for people travelling to and fro from Punakha to the capital city.

Day 5 & 6

After breakfast, drive back towards Dochula and to Paro.. Post lunch drive to Paro, on the way visit Tamchog Lhakhang: Tachog lhakhang is temple that is dedicated to the 13th century saint Thangthong Gyalpo, the iron bridge builder. This temple is located across the river about 15kms from the Paro towards Thimphu. In order to get to the temple one must cross an iron chain bridge, one of the few remaining of the many that Thangthong Gyalpo built. This is a private temple however tourists are allowed to visit if they are given permission. Crossing this very old bridge with its swaying and undulating movements can be quite an experience. The temple's location on the ridge and the high rocky barren hills which serve as its backdrop makes this a good location to take pictures. Ta Dzong (National Museum) :Overnight stay at Paro.

Day 7 & 8

Have early breakfast and drive up to the base of Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest). The most famous and sacred site among all the places in Bhutan. Guru Padmasambhava is said to have come riding on a flying tigress to this place and meditated in a cave for 3 months, it wasn’t until Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal came to this place and meditated that it gained the popularity that it has now. The present structure is said to be built in the 15th century but was destroyed by fire in 1998 and has been restored. Next day After breakfast departure transfer to Bagdogra (IXB) Airport for your onwards journeys.

I love the way they showcase all the packages on their site.  It is so easy to compare and choose.  And no matter which one you choose,  they will top it up with a free cash voucher from their side.  So,  its a no brainer really,  I use HolidayRewardz every time I plan a holiday

They showcase packages from all the leading brands,  so it is like a one stop solution.  And then they have a free gift program.  In case of Bhutan,  it was a Dinner Voucher in Thimphu at a leading Indian Joint.  No strings attached.  You get a good deal going via HolidayRewardz
