Average time to visit

In the western, central and eastern Bhutan you will mostly experience cold European-like weather. Winter lasts here from November to March. The Monsoon occurs between June and August when the temperature is normally between 8° and 21°C. October and November are arguably the best months, when the monsoon has passed and the skies are clear. The spring months of March, April and May are best for the flora, but it can be stormy as the monsoon builds up for July-September.

Itinerary

Bhutan is the perfect destination for teenagers as the one of the last truly unspoilt destinations in the world, with Himalayan views that will simply make your jaw drop. Moving every two to three days there is always something new and exciting around the corner and a fantastic mix of culture, history, colourful markets and brilliant trekking trails to keep the whole family entertained.

  1. Days 1-2: Thimphu

    Bhutan is one of the most remarkable destinations you can visit - it is a landlocked Himalayan kingdom that has carefully managed the numbers of tourists who can visit, thereby preserving its unique culture and traditions. On arrival in Paro you will be met by your private guide and drive who will be with you throughout your journey in Bhutan. First on the destination list will be Thimphu, which is just an hour from Paro. Thimphu has plenty to offer and we have included a full day to explore with some highlights stops at the National Memorial Chorten and the Buddha Dordenma. Also depending on when your dates fall, if over a weekend we will include a trip to the weekend market in Thimphu, a great opportunity for people watching and also stop in at the Changlingmithang stadium in case there is a game of archery that you can enjoy watching.

    Accommodation: Taj Tashi (1 night)

  2. Days 2-4: Punakha

    From Thimphu you’ll then move on to Punakha for your next three nights and is a great place to get out and be active in Bhutan. During your two full days in Punakha we have included a wonderful day trek followed by a rafting experience back into town as well as a cycling trip along the Pho Chu Valley and stop for a picnic lunch with dramatic views. Culturally, Punakha is also extremely rich and we have also included stops for you at the beautiful Punakha Dzong and the Chimi Lhakhang Monastery (otherwise known as the Temple of Fertility).

    Accommodation: COMO Uma Punakha (2 nights)

  3. Days 4-6: Gangtey

    Next it is on to Gangtey located in the glacial Phojikha Valley, famous for the migrating Black-Neck Crane which can be seen from early November to the end March. Over your two nights here we have included some wonderful day walks through the local villages and if possible a stop in at a yak herders family for tea in their home. Also during your stay, we will arrange a stop at the Gangtrey Goenpa Monastery for evening prayers.

    Accommodation: Gangtey Lodge (2 nights)

  4. Days 6-8: Paro

    Your final stop in Bhutan will be Paro for two nights. Over your time here we have included a light walk to the main Dzong, the National Museum and the interesting Drukgyel Dzong. Top it all off with a visit to the unforgettable Tiger's Nest Monastery, an 800-metre ascent to one of the most picturesque buildings in the world. As you will have two full days in Paro, we can even include a cycle trip between Haa Valley and Paro, on the Chele La Pass.

    Accommodation: COMO Uma Paro (2 nights)
