The last kingdom of Himalaya showcases some of the brilliant landscapes. Most of the northern region is covered by the mountains of the Himalayan range which is followed by low foothills and valleys. The vegetation ranges from subtropical to alpine and it becomes barren rocky land as you move upward. The combination of the snow-capped mountains, forests, valleys, rivers and waterfalls is spectacular.
As the flight approaches Paro, you will get a glimpse of mountains, including Mt. Everest. The trek to the Tiger’s Nest monastery is an amazing opportunity to enjoy these landscapes closely. There is another viewpoint known as Kuenselcholing Viewpoint which is also perfect to observe the landscapes surrounding Thimphu.
2. Tashichho Dzong and Memorial Chorten
Dzong is the unique and beautiful architecture found in Bhutan. Initially built as fortresses, these dzongs now serve as administrative, monastic and educational centres. Tashichho Dzong is the administrative centre of Thimphu district where the throne room and office of the king lies. Tshechu festival is celebrated in each major dzong of the district but Tashichho Dzong holds the biggest Tshechu festival. Similar to other dzongs, this dzong is also full of art and crafts related to Tibetan Buddhism and images of Druk Gyalpo of Bhutan.
Memorial Chorten was built to respect the third King of Bhutan, King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. This stupa is full of large images of tantric Buddhist deities and several artefacts of Tibetan Buddhism. The third king wanted to build something depicting the mind of Buddha.
