  • Soon after breakfast, your sightseeing tour begins. You will be covering the following places:  
  • Kuensel Phodrang: It’s the world’s largest sitting Buddha statue at 167 feet high situated on top of a hill overlooking the city. The word kuensel means everything is clear, and from this place you can enjoy a great view of the Thimphu Valley on both sides. 
  • Motithang Takin Preserve: The Motithang Takin Preserve is also known as the Thimphu Zoo by many. It is a small natural preserve for the Takin, Bhutan’s national animal.  It was originally a mini zoo but was later converted to a preserve. 
  • Memorial Chorten: Referred to as Memorial Chorten, its actual name is Gongzo Chorten or Gyaldren Chorten. The chorten (stupa) is a chief landmark in the capital city and is also the most sacred place of worship for the local people. 
  • Once your tour is complete, you will drive to the historic town of Paro, which has Bhutan’s sole international airport.
