Western section holds some of the prized possession in Bhutan. Western Bhutan Tour allows you with an introduction to scenic valley that is home to Bhutan’s highest Chomolhari Mountain (7320m). The valley is nourished by the glacial water from Chomolhari that drops down to form Pa-Chu River. Drukpa tribe is dominant in the Western valley of Paro, Thimpu, Punakha and Wangdue Phodrang. High Passes of Dochu La (3050m) and Pele La (3300m) allows unobstructed views of picturesque Valleys and mountains.
Paro is the most densely populated area in Bhutan. Paro is also popular for its only airport in entire Bhutan. Rinpung Dzong Monastery handles all religious activities in Paro valley. Ta Dzong is other attraction of Paro. This Dzong is located high up the hill and it was founded as a watch tower in 1651 during time of Tibetan invasion in Bhutan. These days, Ta Dzong serves as a National Museum. Drugyel Dzong is another historically significant site which is located 18km from the main city. Many pilgrims hike to Taktsang Monastery each year to celebrate the entry of Guru Padmasambhava from Tibet who played key role in teaching Buddhism in Bhutan.
The pretty small Thimphu is a capital city located in the valley. People in Thimphu can build their home only in traditional Bhutanese style so that the tourists can get great cultural experience in Thimphu. People are seen dressed in Kho and Kira. Tashicchodzong holds the National Assembly. Foreigners are allowed entry in Tashichhodzong only in annual festival. Taking stroll around Weekly market in Thimphu is the pleasant activity that allows us with an opportunity to witness the best handicraft products from Bhutan.
