Everest (if you are flying from Delhi and Kathmandu), but particularly exciting is the approach through the Bhutanese foothills and the landing, including a few steep turns to land at the tiny airstrip of Paro. On arrival in Paro you will be received by Heavenly Bhutan team by offering welcome scarfs and transferred to Thimphu by private vehicle. Depending on your arrival time, we can proceed for city sightseeing or relax in the hotel. If time permits, visit weekend market (Thu-Sun).

Day 04: Paro-Sangchokor - Bumdra Trek (Trek Start). Distance: 7 km , Walking Time: 4 hrs, Sleeping Altitude: 3500m.
Early morning after breakfast, drive to Sang Choekor from where we will star the trek. While we prepare to trek with the backpack, pay the respects at the Sangchoekor Sedra Buddhist College. The initial climb up from the temple through thick alpine forest take about 3 hours to reach at the base of old temple. The trail undulate for a while before the last steep pull up to the pretty temple which boast commanding views of southern Paro valley including airport. After a final 20 minutes climb through ruins and fluttering prayer flags, with a last glance southwards we plunge back into ancient forest traversing for about 40 minutes then come out onto a high wide meadow dotted with sacred chortens and prayer flags. Our home for the night is tucked in under Bumdra Monastery (cave of a thousand prayers) making the most of the awesome views of the Himalayan range. If time permits we can visit the monastery and also climb the peak to the north (about 4000m) for even better views, night halt at camp.

Day 05: Bumdra – Paro (Trek end). Distance: 15km, Walking Time: 6hrs.
After a hearty breakfast in the jaw dropping landscape, it is time to either head straight back into the valley or linger awhile soaking up the view and perhaps hang some prayer flags of our own. Eventually we have to drop back into the ancient pine and rhododendron forest on the monks’ zig zagging trail. After 1-2 hours of descent we catch glimpses of the golden roofs of temples below and soon come upon the first of many on our way back from the wilds. The path snakes across the mountainside between the monasteries and temples before reaching the gardens of Zhangtopelri (Heaven on Earth) from which you can bravely peer over edge and straight down onto the ornate roofs of Taktsang in the cliff far below. An hour later and we are at the gates of Taktsang looking across the gorge a steep descent to a waterfall then ascent on steps and you are passing into the Tiger’s Nest itself. Retracing our steps we begin the final descent of about 45 minutes to reach our vehicle and drive back to hotel not forgetting to stop on the other side of the valley and look back at what we have achieved.
