Day 3 : Punakha

DAY 3 Punakha Dzong, Khamsan Yuley Namgay Chorten Walk, Chimmi Lhakhang . We have a full day for further exploration of the scenic Punakha Valley, which is low enough 1, 200m to allow bananas and oranges to grow. The destination for this morning’s walk up through whitewashed homesteads and farmland is Khamsum Yuley Namgay Chorten, a shrine recently built by the royal family. It is a startlingly ornate and elaborate structure with a rainbow of Guru Rinpoche images and superb views. Heading down along the riverside the massive architectural edifice of the 17th-century Punakha Dzong soon looms into view. The fortress-monastery was built in 1637 by Shabdung Nawang Namgyal in a commanding position at the confluence of the Po Chhu and Mo Chhu Father and Mother rivers. It once served as the seat of the Kingdom's government and is now the winter home of Je Khempo, the head abbot of Bhutan, along with a retinue of 1, 000 monks. In the afternoon a short walk across rice paddies takes us to Chimmi Lhakhang, a fertility temple dedicated to Drukpa Kuenley, a Tibetan Buddhist saint known popularly as the Divine Madman. The temple sits atop a picturesque hill surrounded by rice fields. Drukpa Kuenley built a chorten on the site in the 14th century, and it has long been a pilgrimage site for couples hoping to start a family. Duration: 6 - 7 hours Difficulty: Easy to Moderate Guided with picnic or lunch at local restaurant Dinner and Overnight in the hotel.
Hotel : Hotel Pema Karpo, Punakha

Day 4 : Punakha

DAY 4 Chorten Nibu and Village walk In the 15th century Drukpa Kunley the Divine Madman observed a witches coven plotting to harm the locals so he threw a stick of firewood into their midst all the way from Cat Hill Jeligang. The log later grew into a beautiful tree and a stupa or chorten was built. In the 17th century, Desi Tenzin Rabgay the 4th regent then built a temple and monastery on the spot which now houses a retinue of 50 monks. It is near the old stupa and you may walk the village. Duration: 2 - 3 hours Difficulty: Easy
Hotel : Hotel Pema Karpo, Punakha

Day 5 : Paro

DAY 5 Punakha Valley to Paro via Chuzom and Tamchhu Lhakhang. Time to retrace our steps over the Dochu La for a second view of the wonderful Himalayan range. Returning to the Chuzum river confluence we catch a glimpse of the three shrines in Nepali, Tibetan and Bhutanese style which were built to ward of evil spirits near the checkpoint. Time permitting the journey can be broken with a visit to Tamchhu Lhakhang built by Thangtong Gyalpo, the so-called Iron Bridge Builder. This former saint from the 14th century introduced the art of building suspension bridges with iron chains and the only way to reach his temple is by one of these bridges. On the final leg the road snakes alongside the Pa Chhu River, through apple orchards and rice paddies, past quaint homesteads to our home in the mountains, After check-in and a show round, we invite you to spend the rest of the day relaxing around the property, enjoying the facilities or trying an activity like the Bhutanese national sport of archery or a traditional Bhutanese Hot Stone Bath. Duration of drive Punakha to Paro via Chunzom : 3 - 4 hours Difficulty: Easy
Hotel : NA, Paro

Day 6 : Paro

DAY 6 Highlights of the Paro Valley–Taktsang Walk. One of the most amazing and important pieces of architecture in Bhutan, Taktsang Goemba defies logic, gravity, and reason. Legend has it that this Cliffside was where Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava landed on the back of a flying tigress, bringing Buddhism to Bhutan from Tibet. To avoid the hot sun an early start is advisable for the two-hour climb to the Tiger’s Nest viewpoint. Descend steeply, then climb up to the monastery, passing a waterfall and entering through the main gates which are filled with murals. Retrace our steps or alternatively if time and energy levels allow head further up to several remote temples and monasteries. In the evening you are invited for a firelight farewell dinner. Duration: 7 - 8 hours Difficulty: Moderate to Hard Guided with picnic or Taktsang cafetaria Overnight: Dinner and Overnight in the hotel.
Hotel : NA, Paro

Day 7 : Paro
