Obviously it is a refreshing drink. Enjoy your tea, get fresh up and then jump to the breakfast table. After having sumptuous breakfast, dress up and get ready to 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.

Trashi Chhoe Dzong - Or the Fortress of the Glorious Region is another 'must visit' site on a Bhutan Tour. 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.

Dochula Pass : Is a must visit tourist destination during any Bhutan Tour Package. It is merely 1 hrs drive from the city of Thimphu. While going to Punakha from Thimphu, this magnificent view point can be seen at 10,000 feet altitude. 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.
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.

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.
As the Sun shines up high in the Land of Happiness, open your eyes to a beautiful morning of Punakha in the lap of serene nature, and sip into your cup of hot tea while admiring the green valley from your bed before moving towards Phobjikha Valley post breakfast.

Hi Soumalya, We are very much thankful to you for planning entire Bhutan Package Tour from Mumbai with so proper itinerary, without any hectic schedule. 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.
"I booked my Bhutan Package with NatureWings for me & my friend. We two gals traveled with nice car & good young driver. It was really enjoyable. I want to say that they are best in Bhutan sector. I also want to tell travel people that if there r senior citizens then book for them the hotels which has lift to go upstairs or set their stay on ground level but up views are always more beautiful. Thanks to NatureWings for memorable & beautiful stay in Bhutan. Bhutan is very beautiful & peaceful country with very beautiful people as well. You have to definitely try with this sector. If I go again to Bhutan then only I will book with NatureWings."
"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!"
"A very well organised Bhutan Trip from Delhi by Mr. Sandip n his team. Despite a few initial hiccups (the hotel we had locked down initially in the package wasn't available n had to settle for another one), everything went on rather smoothly. Had a great time and a special thanks to the guide Mr. Somnath. Kudos team naturewings n thank you from all of us."
