This trip comprises the highlights of Western and Central Bhutan and focuses on Paro Tsechu Tour-probably the biggest of the Tsechus of Bhutan. The Black mountain separates Western Bhutan with the rest of the country , extending roughly north-south with virgin forest providing a natural habitat for much wildlife such as Himalayan black bears, leopards, red pandas, etc and about 450 species of birds.

Western Bhutan—the heartland of the Drukpa people— is comprised of the Haa Valley, Paro Valley, Thimphu, Punakha Valley, Wangdue Phodrang and Phobjika Valley. This part of Bhutan is known for its stunning scenery with rice paddies and orchards, magnificent mountains, pristine rivers that flow through the main towns of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha, and unique two-story houses with brightly painted window designs. We will cross the high passes such as Cheli La (3988m, 13,084ft.), Dochu La (3050m, 10,007ft.), Pele La (3300m, 10,825ft), from where we will enjoy the superb views of the mountains and the valleys.

In Central Bhutan, we will visit Trongsa, and the rich broad valleys of Bumthang. We will drive over the passes of Yotang La (3400m, 11,155ft.) Shertang La (3573m, 11,723ft) and Thrumshing La (3800m, 12,465ft.). Central Bhutan is known for its buckwheat and apple production, its sturdy stone houses, and its plethora of monasteries. It’s the ideal place for walking due to its broad valleys and sloping mountains. We will visit the Trongsa Dzong—one of the most picturesque examples of Bhutanese architecture—and explore Bumthang, the cultural heartland of Bhutan and home to the some of the kingdom’s most precious and ancient Buddhist sites.
