Customers infront of snowy mountain landscape Bhutan

Day 1

Paro - Bumdra Monastery (3,800m)

Today’s hike starts with a steep ascent in the cool shade, shortly reaching a clearing with prayer flags, where you can enjoy a spectacular view of both Paro and Do Chhu valleys. You’ll continue on to reach the last steep elevation, overlooking views of the snow-capped Himalayas.

After another short climb through ruins and fluttering flags, you’ll hike into the ancient forest before reaching a wide meadow with Sacred chortens (stupas) – a short walk from your campsite tonight. You’ll also be able to visit the monastery located not so far from the camp and climb towards the north of the peak for a better view of the Himalayan ranges.

Day 2

Bumdra - Tigers Nest - Paro

After a hearty breakfast overlooking the vast landscape, you have the option to linger a while and soak up the view and even hang a few prayer flags of your own. In your own time, you’ll drop back onto the ancient route of pine and rhododendron forest of the monks’ zigzagging trail. After a few hours of descent, you’ll catch glimpses of golden temples below and soon come upon the first of many.


After passing gardens and waterfalls you’ll end the trip with a visit to the majestic Tiger’s Nest, sure to be the highlight of your trek! Once you’ve finished taking in the stunning views of this spectacular temple – your driver will pick you up, taking you to your hotel for tonight. When you’re all checked in, you can spend the evening taking a stroll through Paro town.

Speak to our Bhutan specialist, Kate

“Bhutan felt like a fairy-tale to me; a land where the locals wear traditional dress and archery is practiced against a backdrop of green valleys and blue skies. Visit this country, and you’ll soon believe in legends.”
