Here is how you will spend your time
Day 1

Day 1: Fly Paro

Fly to Paro, Bhutan, on Druk Air, the national airline of Bhutan.

Day 2: Hike To Chele La And Dzongdrakha, Visit Village Home

This morning a scenic drive of 1 & ½ hr will bring us to Chele La pass at an altitude of aprrox. 3900m/1300ft. On one side is the Paro and on the other side is Haa valley. The hike of this morning begins from a short descent below the pass. It is about a half hour uphill and shorter coming down hill. The hike brings you to a clusters of shelters built on sheer cliffs, under the rock/cave and a temple that houses some 50 or so nuns. On your way back to Paro, we will stop at a place for the hike to a monastery called Dzondrakha which looks similar to famous Tiger’s Nest monastery but located at shorter hiking distance. Half the walk will be along the agricultural field and very easy, another half will be an uphill climb and when both versions of hikes are summed up it will take less than 1 hour to reach at the top where the monastery stands. On reaching the site of the monastery, one would enjoy the view of the fertile Paro valley below. Your guide will take you inside the main temple of the monastery. Arrive in Paro and visit a typical Bhutanese village home. This visit will certainly provide you an insight on living Bhutan Tour style of Bhutanese villagers.

Your hike this morning is to site of Taktsang Monastery (meaning Tigers nest), tragically wrecked in a fire of early 1998.

The hike is about 1 & 1/2 hours to the teahouse, from where you may either opt to go further uphill to the monastery for about 1 hour.
