Day 2: Sightseeing in Thimphu
Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
After breakfast, proceed for sight-seeing.
Buddha View Point: Another place from where you can get a good overview of the Thimphu valley is from the Buddha point (KuenselPhodrang). It is again a short drive from the town. You can pay your obeisance and offer prayers to the Buddha, the largest statue in the country and then walk around and take a glimpse of the valley.
SimtokhaDzong: monastery was built in 1627 by ZhabdrungNgawangNamgyal. It houses the Institute for Language and Cultural Studies. The carvings behind the prayer wheel in the courtyard are a major attraction of this temple.
Memorial Chorten: also known as the ThimphuChorten, is a chorten in Thimphu, Bhutan, located on Doeboom Lam in the southern-central part of the city near the main roundabout and Indian military hospital.
Textile Museum: is worth a visit to get to know the living national art of weaving. Exhibitions introduce the major weaving techniques, styles of local dress and textiles made by women and men.
Takin Mini Zoo: The Takin is the national animal of Bhutan, and looks like a cross between a cow and a goat. Legend has it that the animal was created by the great Buddhist yogi, DrupaKunley, and it can be found only in Bhutan and nearby areas.
In the evening, return to your hotel and rest overnight after a delicious delicious dinner.
