Trip Introduction: 3 nights 4 days in Bhutan

Bhutanis a landlocked country situated between China and India in the Asia continent. The mesmerizing country of Bhutan is marked by beautiful monasteries, sacred temples, old sculptures, and breathtaking mountain views. Similarly, Bhutan is also known as Druk Yul which means the “Land of the Thunder Dragons.” Bhutan is called so because of the thunderstorm that strikes the valleys from the Himalayan peaks thereby portraying the fire from a dragon.

The highest mountain peak of Bhutan is Gangkhar Puensum situated at 7,570 meters (24,840 ft) above sea level. The country of Bhutan is decorated with various ancient monuments, monasteries, chortens, gumbas, and temples that resemble Buddhism (Vajrayana Buddhism) which is the main religion of the Bhutanese. Likewise, during the Bhutan tour, one can see various monks and nuns residing in the Taktsang or monasteries passing down religious teachings to the new generation.

On the other hand, the 3 nights and 4 days is a comprehensive and meticulously prepared trekking or tour package that provides an opportunity to witness the religious and cultural marvels of the nation. Similarly, individuals going on the 4-day Bhutan tour can get insights into the religious teachings, architectural marvels, and spiritual practices of Bhutanese as well as the steps taken to conserve their rich religious background.

The 3-night and 4-day Bhutan Tour Package takes individuals to some of the prominent places of Bhutan including Paro and Thimphu (the capital city of Bhutan). During the visit, one can also get the opportunity to visit some best attractions of Bhutan including the Buddha Dordenma, Tashichho Dzong, Changangkha Lhakhang, Paro Taktsang, and many more.

The Buddha Dordenma is a gigantic statue of Shakyamuni Buddha that houses over another hundred thousand smaller Buddha statues. The statue is made up of bronze and gold and it is believed to bring peace and prosperity to the world. The interior of the statue forms the throne of Buddha Dordenma and consists of all the names of sponsors who contributed to the construction of the statue.

The Tashichho Dzong is also known as the “Fortress of the Glorious Religion” or “Fortress of Auspicious Doctrine” which is a Buddhist monastery which is located on the northern edge of Thimphu. It is regarded as one of the best attractions of Thimphu and it is said to be built by Dharma Raja who also founded the Lho-Drukpa sect of Buddhism. Similarly, the Changangkha Lhakhang is another temple complex that is located in Thimphu. The Changangkha Lhakhang is supposedly the oldest temple in Thimphu which is seen through old components of the temple courtyard, sacred images, scriptures, and paintings decorating the walls of the temple.

On the other hand, the Paro Taktsang is a world-renowned landmark of Bhutan which is situated in the Paro district. The Paro Taktsang is also known as Tiger’s Nest Monastery where it is said that Guru Rinpoche (also known as Guru Padmasambhava) visited on a tigress back to do meditation in one of the caves giving it the name Tiger’s Nest. Similarly, the Tiger’s Nest is situated on a cliffside of Paro Valley in Bhutan so anyone who visits the location is sure to be impressed by the architecture and construction of such intricate design in such a location.

Subsequently, the Bhutan 3 nights 4 days package can be done all year round while the best seasons being the spring and autumn seasons. Spring in Bhutan lasts from March to May and autumn in Bhutan lasts from September to November.

Why select 4 Days and 3 Nights in Bhutan?

The landlocked country of Bhutan is one of the best destinations in the globe to view stunning mountain peaks. The natural beauty and intricate artistic beauty are not to be seen in any other location. Similarly, for those who wish to gain information about the Buddhist religion, its teachings, and practices, no other comes close to Bhutan. Their distinct culture, tradition, and landmarks show how Bhutan has been preserving and continuing the religious teaching for future generations. The monasteries, gumbas, chortens, and sculptures marked with intricated Buddhist teachings and mantras are proof of Buddhist cultural heritage and spiritual devotion.

The following are some of the points that provide a better understanding of why to go on a Bhutan tour:

  • Spectacular scenery: The Himalayan country of Bhutan consists of several beautiful Himalayan peaks and hilly landscapes. The highest peak of Bhutan is Gangkhar Puensum (7,570 meters/2300 ft) while the third highest mountain of Bhutan is Jomolhari (7,314 meters/23,996 ft). These mountains also open the route for various trekking destinations in Bhutan. Similarly, the 12-Day Jomolhari Trekking-Bhutan is one of the best trekking packages available in Bhutan. Likewise, the view from various Taktsang and hilltop chorten mesmerises anyone who makes it there. The natural beauty of Bhutan therefore is worth the praise and not to miss.
  • Culture and Tradition: The grandest festival of Bhutan is the Thimphu Tshechu which is hosted in the capital city of Bhutan in September. Thus, individuals who visit the country during this time should feel lucky and not miss this grand festival. The festival contains several masked dances with traditional costumes and dresses. Some of the activities include the Dance of the 21 Black Hats, the Dance of the Lords of the Cremation Ground, the Dance of the terrifying deities, and mask dances performed by lay monks. Similarly, there are other prominent festivals in Bhutan including Punakah Drubchen, Paro Tsechu, Haa, Merak, and many others.
  • National Happiness: The country of Bhutan has a unique approach to assessing development with the use of Gross National Happiness (GNH). This means that Bhutan prioritizes happiness over economic growth.
  • Ecotourism: The government of Bhutan has a strict policy to favor ecotourism. The concept of ecotourism allows international tourists to visit and explore Bhutan with minimal difficulties. The natural and artistic beauty of Bhutan is labelled as a protected area by the government of Bhutan to safeguard the country’s assets. Doing so will allow us to reduce the environmental impact and conserve the diverse flora and fauna available here. In addition, one can also see efforts to promote community-based tourism that aim to boost the economic benefits of both the individual and the community itself.
  • Authentic experience: It is necessary to understand that several places in Bhutan are yet to be explored. This allows tourists to see some of the never-explored places of Bhutan thereby providing a unique experience. Similarly, the never-to-be-seen places provide raw information about the landmark and open a wide door for authenticity. Likewise, there are provisions made by the government of Bhutan that ensure only a limited number of tourists per year. This is done to preserve the asset and to make sure everyone entering Bhutan will have an exciting experience.

So, the four nights and three days in Bhutan are the perfect choice for an unforgettable international travel experience. Similarly, authentic travel partner like Trekking Planner helps to aim for a hassle-free tour experience with comfort and a step toward eco-friendly conservation practices.

How does the Bhutan tour start and end?

The attractive 3-night and 4-day tour packages start from the arrival in the Paro International Airport which is the only international airport of Bhutan. With the arrival the 3 Night 4 Days Tour map takes individuals towards Thimphu with a scenic drive. While reaching the capital city of Thimphu the sightseeing tour initiates.

The sightseeing tour of Thimphu begins with a visit to Changangkha Lhakhang. The Lhakhang is a temple located in central Thimphu from the hills to the east. The temple is located in two sections and the first section contains principal sacred images, scriptures, and other relics. Similarly, the second section contains images of other religious deities and paintings that cover the walls of the temple. The temple is also decorated with some of the oldest murals. However, it is necessary to understand that the entrance of the temple is restricted to only Bhutanese men. Likewise, visitors here must dress subtle to respect the culture.

After the informative visit to the Changangkha Lhakhang, head towards the Taking Preservation Centre. The Motithang Takin Preserve is located in the Motithang district of Thimphu and it is a preservation center for the national animal of Bhutan which is Takin. During the visit to the preserve center, one can see the conservation efforts made to conserve such exquisite animals. The Nature Conservation Division (NCD) of the Ministry of Agriculture of Bhutan has developed a natural habitat for the animals to remove threats and minimize poaching of Takin.

With an informative time at the Motithang Takin Preserve, head towards Dochula Pass, which is located at an altitude of 3,100 meters/10,200 feet. The Dochu La Pass is a mountain pass that showcases the snow-capped mountains that are present within Bhutan. There are 108 memorial chortens which is known as Druk Wangyal Khang Zhang Chortens which was built by Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk.

As the sightseeing tour of Thimphu comes to an end, head towards Paro to initiate the hike towards Paro Taktsang Monastery. The Paro Taktsang Monastery is also known as Tiger’s Nest Monastery. The Taktsang is one of the thirteen Tiger’s Nest caves that is where Padmasambhava practiced and taught Vajrayana. The monastery is located 10 kilometers from the north of Paro and it hangs in the cliffside. The trail to Paro Taktsang is through the pine forest with occasional occurrence of Lhakhang and a temple of Urgyan Tsemo.

Spring in Bhutan lasts from March to April and it is marked by moderate temperatures that favor long and comfortable walking conditions. The springtime begins immediately after the snow starts to melt which gives a clear sky and fantastic view of the landscapes.
