About 2 Nights 3 Days Bhutan Tour

2 Nights 3 Days Bhutan tour takes you to a brief journey into the land of the Thunder Dragon. Bhutan is a Buddhist country rich in tradition, culture, mythology, and art. This short tour in the small Himalayan country takes you to the capital city Thimphu and Paro. These cities have numerous monasteries, dzongs and palaces. 

This visit to Bhutan can be a spiritual retreat from your regular life. Most of the people in Bhutan practice Vajrayana Buddhism. Bhutanese art and literature are directly influenced by its religion. It is a common thing to see monks and nuns dressed in robes,  men in Gho and women in Kira. Prayer wheels and prayer flags can be seen around any monastery, dzongs or religious sites.

Dzong architecture is very famous in Bhutan. These buildings are used as administrative offices today but they were built as fortresses. There are several monasteries, gumbas, and lakhangs. During this tour, you will visit several such architectures including Tashichho Dzong and Memorial Chorten. Another amazing place you will visit is the Buddha Dordenma. A huge statue of Budhha lies in the ruins of Kuensel Phodrang which is also a viewpoint to watch the city of Thimphu.

On the second day, a few hours of hike or a horse ride on a narrow slope takes you to a sheer cliff where the Tiger’s Nest Monastery stays. This monastery is one of the most outstanding places to visit in Bhutan. It is built in a cave where Guru Padmasambhava is believed to have meditated. There is also optional sightseeing in the city. 

After returning from there, you can visit other places like Takin Sanctuary, Textile Museum, heritage museum, school of crafts and the national museum. Strolling around the city also lets you connect with the place and people.

2 Nights 3 Days Bhutan Tour Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 1 reviews

I had just finished my tour in Nepal and I had heard about Bhutan from so many people. Because I had only few days left, I didn't think I could go to Bhutan Tour this time but Ram said that it was possible even if I had just 3 days left.  He managed to plan my short trip to Bhutan the same day and prepared everything for us. That way I flew to Bhutan unexpectedly. I had the best time during this holiday spending it in two beautiful Himalayan countries. If you want to spend your holidays in Nepal or Bhutan, I recommend Sublime Trails.
