Today you will take a scenic flight to Paro. On arrival, you will visit the Kyichu temple, where you can light 108 Butter lamps. You will then visit the National Museum with a top curator.
We have arranged a private archery tournament for you, where you can join and compete against a local team. Each team is encouraged by its supporters who dance and sing, extolling their team while teasing and mocking the opponents to make them lose their concentration. Each time an arrow hits the bulls-eye, there is celebratory mayhem! Toward the evening, you will take e-bikes on a short tour to experience a little more of the Paro Valley.
After an early breakfast, take a day hike to Taktsang Monastery, perched on the side of a vertical cliff at 3000m altitude north of Paro. This monastery creates an extraordinary sight and is the unofficial symbol of Bhutan. It is one of the most famous Buddhist Monasteries in Bhutan and is also to as the ‘Tiger’s Nest’. An hour and a half hike up to a small wooden teahouse provides a close view of the monastery where you take a breather and enjoy some light snacks. A further hike of an hour leads you to the glorious Taktsang Monastery. That evening, you will be able to enjoy the spa and ease those blessed aches from the morning’s pilgrimage.
Finally – to finish the trip in style, we have arranged an enchanting final dinner with live musicians, dancers and a meal fit for Bhutan’s Royal Family.
