This is one of the best time to book a Bhutan Tour Package from India.

Cities like Thimphu, Paro, Punakha appeared white due to heavy snowfall. Government of Bhutan sometime declares long holidays in schools, collages, and work from home module for government employees. But life must goes on - with this mantra Bhutan tries to resurrect from the chillness of nature. Many festivals are held during winter, some of them notable are Monggar Tshechu, Trashigang Tshechu, Lhuntse Tshechu and Trongsa Tshechu. So if you want to experience the different looks of Bhutan, there is no season actually. Every season is unique and the choices are yours. You can book your Bhutan Tour in winter also. Winter in Bhutan is Awesome!

Following breakfast, embark on a guided tour of the valley and explore some of the great attractions of Thimphu - The Capital City of Bhutan.
The National Memorial Chorten - Also known as Thimphu Chorten is a site for evening prayer. The chorten was build in the third King memory, and it was continuously circumambulated by people, murmuring mantras and spinning their prayer wheels. The idea to construct this landmark was proposed by Bhutan third King, His Majesty Jigme Dorji Wangchuk (the father of modern Bhutan), who has wished to erect a monument to the World for peace and prosperity. Completed in 1974 after Majesty's untimely death, it served as a memorial to the late King and a monument of peace.
The Clock Tower - Located at the centre of the Thimphu Town, the Clock Tower Square is an architectural wonder one can behold during Bhutan package tour. This tower differs from every other construction or building in Bhutan. It is basically a tower with four clock faces in four directions. The tower depicts of Bhutanese architecture pattern which is basically painted or engraved on wood. The tower is decorated with many intricately carved floral patterns, paintings, and replica of dragons. The dragons on the tower are facing each clock in the tower, which is interesting to look at. The dragon is a holy animal in Bhutanese culture, and it stands for the country's independence.
As this place is a prime attraction among locals and travelers in Bhutan, most people come here in the evening to see and enjoy the exquisite carvings and paintings. This tower is one of the busiest locations in town because there are numerous restaurants, gift shops, and hotels nearby. The square is in close proximity to a number of trade fairs, concerts, and other events. The area of clock tower and its surroundings occasionally hosts live music events, which makes the place vibrant and full of life and energy. You can buy gifts for your family and friends at one of the many shopping centers in the area. There is a little playground for children that are also a great place for a picnic and a fun evening activity.
Sakyamuni Buddha - On the top of Kuensel Phodrang hill sits the statue of Great Buddha Dordenma. The 51.5-meter long gilded bronze statue would surely attract you, and the uninterrupted view of the valley would leave you spellbound. This site is also known as Buddha Viewpoint.
Changangkha Lhakhang - At Thimphu, you will come across several monasteries and temples, but Changangkha Lhakhang is the most important religious structure amongst all. The fabric is dedicated to Avalokiteshvara, a sign of compassion dating back to the 15th century, the oldest in the region, and from here, enjoy the grand view of Thimphu valley.
Takin Zoo - In here, you will find the National animal of Bhutan, "Takin". Takin is one of the most endangered species of the World, and it is available only in Bhutan, preserved in open habitat.
Trashi Chhoe Dzong - Or the Fortress of the Glorious Region is another 'must visit' site on a 10N 11D Bhutan Tour Package. Situated on the west bank of Wang Chhu River, the Trashi Chhoe Dzong is the formal coronation site of the fifth King that hosts the annual Tsechu festival. This Dzong was built in the year 1641 by the political and religious unifier of Bhutan, Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, later it was reconstructed in the 1960s in a traditional Bhutanese manner, without the use of nails or architectural plans. Overnight at Hotel in Thimphu.

As your Hot Ngaja (a Sweet Bhutanese milk tea) arrives sip into it while enjoying the beautiful valley from the room. Post breakfast heads towards Punakha, the former capital of Bhutan. Punakha is much backward from the chaotic city life at an elevation of 1200 m, which makes this place quite warm in winter and chill during summer. The valley is famous for Red and White Rice farming along the Pho and Mo Chu river's stretch. En-route visit.
Dochula Pass : Is a must visit tourist destination during any Bhutan Tour Package. It is merely 1 hrs drive from the city of Thimphu.

On a clear day wide range of Eastern Himalayan snow capped mountain peaks can be seen clearly from this view point. Decorated with colorful prayer flags, 108 Chortens are the main attraction of this place. Take a moment to pause during your trip and partake in circumambulations of the 108 hillside chortens.
Druk Wangyal Chorten or 108 memorial Chortens of Dochula Pass was built in 2005 on instruction by the Queen Mother of Bhutan - Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck. It was build to commemorate the memory of the brave Bhutanese soldier who scarified their life in 2003 Assamese insurgents. So, when you are on Bhutan Tour, don't miss this great attraction.
Punakha Dzong : Also known as "The Palace of Great Happiness", Punakha Dzong is located at the confluence of the Pho Chhu (father) and Mo Chhu (mother) rivers in the Punakha–Wangdue valley.

Suspension Bridge : This hidden treasure in the Punakha Valley connects the rest of the valley to the old administrative center of Punakha Dzongkhag. The whole deck is covered with prayer flags and provides a perfect spot for bird watching and photography. At the bridge, you can choose to enjoy late afternoon pomegranate martinis riverside in a rice field with the impressive dzong as a backdrop. Watch the sun set and indulge in local delicacies like fresh spring rolls and dzao (popped Bhutanese rice).
Chimi Lhakhang (Fertility Temple) : Stationed at the top of a hillock, the Chimi Lhakhang is a site dedicated to Lama Drukpa Kuenley. Known as the 'Divine Madman,' Lama Drukpa Kuenley is said to use songs, humor, and outrageous behavior to preach his teachings. Chimi Lhakhang temple is believed to be the temple of fertility, and the Bhutanese hold a strong belief that childless couples are blessed by Lama Drukpa Kuenley if they visit the temple and pray for a child. The road to the temple follows a picturesque rural trail through the paddy field that takes visitors to the temple from the road, and after crossing the paddy field, you will find a tiny stream from where Chimi Lhakhang is just a short climb away. Overnight stayat hotel in Punakha.

We were able to enjoy all beautiful places, clicking lots of photographs without any worries about reaching to next destination. Hotels were good. Food was great. Especially, we enjoyed ourselves much at Mrs. Sonam's house. She was a gem, very warm and kind hearted lady and great cook. We enjoyed food at her place more than any other since it was home made with love and care. Special thanks to her and Mr Sonam too. Mr. Parmesh, our driver was very helpful too and entertained us lot. He was our part-time guide too.
Once again, I thank you for responding all my queries so patiently and Mr Sandip Raha too (I got a first introductory call from him as soon as I had put my query late in the night around 11 PM) and for completing our trip with success and lots of good memories in Bhutan. I will blindly recommend NatureWings to anyone who is looking for Bhutan Trip in future.

"Had a memorable Bhutan Vacation (Oct 2017) with NatureWings. Special thanks to Mr. Suman Paul for planning the trip. Also, the operations team in Bhutan supported us very well, many thanks to Ms. Sabitra.
We were 9 adults accompanied by two infants. We were given a comfortable 16 seater coaster. The driver and tour guide were very well informed and friendly. We had a pleasant stay (2N) at Osel, Thimpu. Punakha was splendid with Zhinkham Resorts (1N). In Paro, due to lack of availability we were given two rooms in Tashinamgay and Taktsang (3N). While Tashinamgay was good, I would not recommend Taktsang Boutique Resort at all.
Overall we had a great experience in the beautiful country of Bhutan... Tashi Delek!"
