Explore

Hike to Paro Taktsang

Make sure you bring water, pace yourself, and go early in the morning to avoid the crowds and warmer afternoon temperatures. Another tip - we recommend going near the end of your trip, once you've acclimated to the high elevation.

Chelela Pass

This road is winding, steep, and narrow, but no need to worry as your guide will be driving. Wear warm clothes as the elevation makes it cold, and be sure to have tea or coffee at the top from the vendor carts. Definitely step out of the car and walk through the prayer flags and trails once you've arrived.

Thimphu

Check out the cultural center in Thimphu and learn about history of Bhutan. It's such a cool experience, and be sure to check out the art boutiques there.

Paro Valley

This is one of the best places to find the ultra-rare Bhutanese Cordyceps - which can only be grown at elevations above 14,000 feet. Believed to have anti-aging effects, this fungus is typically enjoyed with coffee or tea.

Shoot a bow and arrow

Immerse yourself in Bhutan's National Sport by trying it yourself or seeing a competition firsthand. Let your guide know you'd be interested in this, and they'll help you get set up.

Festivals

Festivals are pretty frequent in Bhutan, definitely make sure you plan your trip around the festivals that interest you the most. Your guide can make the best recommendation based on your interests, but spring and fall are great options to consider.
