Thimphu and Paro Valleys By Six Senses

Tour Overview

Travel back in time and be mesmerized by Bhutan’s breathtaking landscape, a journey that few people have had the opportunity to experience. Druk Yul, Bhutan’s official name, is known as the land of the Dragon People with a rich cultural heritage has largely remained hidden until its recent emergence onto the world stage. Your Six Senses GEM (Guest Experience Maker) will greet you as you exit the airport’s arrival hall and will accompany you for the rest of your fascinating five-night journey. Embrace the Kingdom’s natural beauty, mingle with the local people and understand why this country is referred to as the “Happiest Place on Earth”.

Your journey begins with a drive to Thimphu, the capital and largest city in the country. The uniqueness of Thimphu Valley comes with its urban lifestyle and virtually the only area of Bhutan where a taste of city life exists. At an altitude of 7,710 feet (2,350 meters), the capital lies in a steep valley surrounded by rich forested mountains dotted with ancient monasteries and lhakhangs (temples), and is to this day, the only capital city in the world without traffic lights.

 After checking in to Six Senses Thimphu, have a light lunch as you acclimatize to the altitude change while enjoying the captivating view of Thimphu Valley and a glimpse across to the giant Buddha Dordenma standing 170 feet (52 meters) tall. After lunch, you’ll be driven to Zorig Chusum (National Institute of Arts and Crafts), where students learn sculpting, painting, embroidery, gold and silversmithing, carving and more. Continue to Thimphu Dzong (fortress), the traditional seat of the Druk Desi, the head of Bhutan’s civil government. Also known as Tashichho Dzong, it presently houses the throne room and offices of the Druk Gyalpo (the Dragon King of Bhutan). You may also enjoy the illuminated dzong from a distance during early evening before returning to the lodge for dinner. Relax and enjoy the facilities of “Palace in the Sky” as you acclimatize.

During the day, your GEM can suggest several local eateries should you wish to enjoy lunch in town. You’ll explore one of the capital’s cottage industries of paper making, where the Paper Factory shows the ancient and traditional methods of producing De zo (Bhutanese handmade paper), a craft that has been passed down through generations.

Your GEM will hike up with you to the monastery and share stories of its history. Enjoy the wonderful scenery through pine forests that are colorfully decorated with moss and prayer flags. During cooler weather, clouds often shroud the monastery, highlighting its sanctity and remoteness.
