A charming historic town with many sacred sites cradled in a verdant valley, Paro offers a scenic base to explore the important Buddhist attractions and pristine nature around it.
On the 5th (Sun), take in the spiritual surroundings of Ugyen Pema Woedling Zangthopelri. On your second day here, see the interesting displays at National Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kyichu Lhakhang, and then contemplate the long history of Paro Taktsang.

For maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Paro trip itinerary maker website.

Amritsar, India to Paro is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of train, bus, and car. When traveling from Amritsar in April, plan for colder days and little chillier nights in Paro: temperatures range from 24°C by day to 9°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Thimphu.

The kingdom's capital and most modern city, Thimphu offers a mix of ancient traditions and modern commercialism.
Escape the urban bustle at Dochula Pass and Royal Thimphu Golf Course. There's still lots to do: stroll through Motithang Takin Preserve, make a trip to Changangkha Lhakhang, steep yourself in history at Simtokha Dzong, and ponder the world of politics at Tashichho Dzong (Thimpu Dzong).

For where to stay, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Thimphu tour itinerary builder site.

Getting from Paro to Thimphu by car takes about 1.5 hours. In April, daily temperatures in Thimphu can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
