3 Great Bhutan Tours From Paro

Bhutan is a beautiful Himalayan country where happiness is measured by the national yardstick, where seemingly barren mountains are home to precarious Buddhist monasteries, and where a vibrant and rich culture can be found everywhere. It is rich in natural beauty, with some of the cleanest air and rivers in the world. Although Paro is just a small town, it is the main tourist gateway to Bhutan, as it is home to the country’s only international airport (partly because the air is so fresh). As a result, many of the best Bhutan tours start and end in Paro.

For a full tour in Bhutan, it usually takes at least a week, but there are some great short trips that cover the main tourist attractions of the country. However, given the average elevation in the country (8000ft/2438m), it can take a few days to get used to, and even a simple hike can feel dull. Therefore, if you are coming from a lower altitude, it is best to wait a few days before visiting. Considering the remote, undeveloped location of the Himalayas, the best experience might be to do some form of trekking at some point in the trip. For serious mountaineers, there are even tours that include healthy long hikes so that you can fully experience the best of the region. Here are three of the best Bhutan tours from Paro, taking into account many factors such as itinerary, value for money and reviews from previous guests.

A glimpse of Bhutan.
Starting Price: RMB 975/person
Although it’s only a four-day trip from Paro, the small size of Bhutan makes it possible to pack all of Bhutan’s most beautiful sights into one short trip. For example, the Tiger’s Nest Monastery (Parotakthang), which clings to a cliff face, is perhaps the most revered attraction in Bhutan. We will also explore the capital city of Thimphu, which includes many museums and the Sinthokar Dzong, a medieval fortress that is only found in the Tibetan and Bhutanese regions. The cost of this tour includes a moderate quality hotel room, all meals and Bhutanese visa fees, and all guide and transportation costs.
