“Land of the Thunder Dragon” may not sound like the most romantic place for a honeymoon, but Bhutan, with its ancient temples and its fortresses that have been painted beautiful with age will surprise you with its treasure trove of amazing landscapes and destinations that are equally breathtaking as they are romantic. When cooking up a Bhutan honeymoon, consider these amazing places that you can explore and retreat to in your Bhutan tour plan:
1. Trongsa – This small village is characterized by its imposing forts and towers, backdropped by a mountainous spread of greenery. Some key attractions in the Trongsa Village include the Tongsa Dzong, Chendebji Chorten, and the Tower of Trongsa Museum. If you are making your Bhutan tour plan around March or April or between October and November, this destination is a great choice to include in your itinerary.
2. Paro Valley – This historic valley is also one of the best places to visit on a Bhutan honeymoon. The place is the most Tibet-like out of all the districts in Bhutan, with key attractions like old temples (the oldest being Kyichu Lhakhang) as well as massive fortresses like Rinpung Dzong. What makes Paro Valley such an awesome honeymoon destination is its pine-forested valleys, which many boutique villas and accommodations overlook.
3. Thimpu – No Bhutan tour plan, honeymoon, or otherwise should miss a trip to the country’s capital, Thimpu. In addition to scenic landmarks and popular museums, Thimpu features a colorful weekend market, which tourists absolutely love and enjoy because of its quirky shops that sell all kinds of sundries.
Bhutan may not be your conventional romantic getaway but it does have many unique offerings that will appeal to couples whose idea of a great trip is one with a lot of tranquil woodland walks amidst snow-clad mountains and verdant valleys, decorated by monuments of the past.
