Bhutan Textile Tour

7 Nights / 8 Days

Bhutan Textile Tour

per person

There are only a few better windows into a culture than its costumes, fabrics that make us wonder about the glory of an ancient civilization. It is for this one reason that our experts have woven this journey through Bhutan. The other: Bhutan’s culture, while homogenous on the surface, is diverse, exhilarating, and varied.

This journey packs a well-rounded blow of familiarity, both textile-focused and cultural, that treats the full variety of our senses and offers insight into a long-preserved land that’s now opening to the world. Starting in Paro, you’ll explore all that this land offers historically and culturally. And at Thimphu, you may pick up a few strings to bring home along with your rich understanding of Bhutan’s traditional textile, the art of weaving and the art of wearing.

Day 1: ARRIVE PARO
After you arrive at Paro airport, you will be driven to your hotel. In the afternoon, visit Drukgyel Dzong, a fortress built in 1649 by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyel. This is located about 14 km away from Paro town. Most of it is in ruins but still attracts a lot of tourists because of its glorious history.
We will also visit the Kyichu Lhakhang temple which was built in the 7th century by King Songtsen Gampo of Tibet. It is considered one of the holiest places in Bhutan as it marks the advent of Buddhism in the country. In the evening you can stroll around Paro town.
Overnight halt at Paro.

Day 2: PARO
After breakfast hike to Taktsang Monastery. The walk of approximately 1.5 to 2 hours uphill takes you almost a kilometre above the Paro valley floor (for those who cannot hike we will arrange a horse for transfer up to cafeteria).
The view of Taktsang Monastery built on a sheer cliff face 900 metres above the valley floor is a spectacular sight. The Monastery is also an important pilgrim site for the Buddhists. The great Guru Rimpoche is said to have flown here on the back of a tigress when he brought the teachings of the Buddhist Dharma to Bhutan in the 8th Century. Nearby there is a teahouse where you can stop for refreshments before returning to Paro.
Overnight halt at Paro.

Day 3: PARO TO THIMPHU
Drive to the capital, Thimphu (1.5 hours). En route, visit Simtokha Dzong, first fortress built by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyel in 1627 A.D, which is one among the series of fortresses built by him in 17th century in Bhutan.
Once a rustic village sitting in a broad river valley, Thimphu is today the nation's capital. Enjoy a full day of sightseeing, including a visit to the National Memorial Chorten, completed by the Royal Queen Mother as a memorial stupa for the Third King. Continue on to 12th century Changangkha Temple and the Zilukha Nunnery. If your visit coincides with the weekend, you can walk through the Thimphu Market.
Overnight at your hotel in Thimphu.

Day 4: THIMPHU
Continue sightseeing in Thimphu. Visit the School for Arts and Crafts, The National Library housing the collection of Bhutanese scriptures dating back to the 8th century, the Traditional Paper Factory and a fascinating replica of a medieval farmhouse at the Folk Heritage Museum. If there is time, you may visit the nursing pen for the Takin, the national animal of Bhutan, and Tashichhodzong, 'the fortress of the glorious religion' housing some ministries, His Majesty's secretariat, and the central monk body.
After that you can stop to visit Textile Museum and Handicrafts Emporium, where various products of Bhutanese arts and crafts are displayed and can be purchased as well. Also visit local weaving centres where you will see women weaving traditional dresses.
Overnight at your hotel in Thimphu.

Day 5: THIMPHU TO PUNAKHA
Drive over the Dochu-La pass (3,100 meters), which on a clear day offers an incredible view of Himalayan peaks before descending into the Punakha valley (3 hrs). In the Dochu-La area there are vast Rhododendron forests that grow to tree size and bloom in late April/early May covering the mountains in a riot of glorious spring colour. Punakha was the ancient capital of Bhutan. On arrival, visit Punakha Dzong, built in 1637 by the Shabdrung, the 'Unifier of Bhutan'. The three story main temple of the Punakha Dzong is a breathtaking example of traditional architecture with four intricately embossed entrance pillars crafted from cypress and decorated in gold and silver.
After lunch, enjoy a walk to Chimi Lhakhang, temple of Drukpa Kuenly. He inherited the Divine Madman title since he revolted against the orthodox Buddhism in his time.
Overnight at your hotel in Punakha.

Day 6: PUNAKHA - PARO
Drive to Wangduephodrang, the last town on the highway before entering central Bhutan. Situated on a ridge overlooking a river junction, the formidable Wangduephodrang Dzong is the town most visible feature. In the 17th century, Wangdue played a critical role in unifying the western, central and southern regions of the country. Also visit the local market.
After lunch drive to Paro and check into the hotel.
Overnight at the hotel in Paro.

At Paro, visit the Ta Dzong Museum housing many religious relics, works of art and handicrafts offering a great orientation into Bhutan's historical, cultural, and religious past. Next, visit the Rimpong Dzong to see the painting of the great saint Milarepa, considered as the master of meditation by the Bhutanese and believed to have attained enlightenment in a lifetime.
