Royal Bhutan

Bhutan is located on the southern slopes of the eastern Himalayas, landlocked between the Tibet Autonomous Region to the north and the Indian states of Sikkim, West Bengal, Assam, and Arunachal Pradesh to the west and south. The land consists mostly of steep and high mountains crisscrossed by a network of swift rivers, which form deep valleys before draining into the Indian plains. Elevation rises from 200 m (660 ft) in the southern foothills to more than 7,000 m (23,000 ft). This great geographical diversity combined with equally diverse climate conditions contributes to Bhutan’s outstanding range of biodiversity and ecosystems.

The northern region of Bhutan consists of an arc of Eastern Himalayan alpine shrub and meadows reaching up to glaciated mountain peaks with an extremely cold climate at the highest elevations. Most peaks in the north are over 7,000 m (23,000 ft) above sea level; the highest point in Bhutan is Gangkhar Puensumat at 7,570 metres (24,840 ft), which has the distinction of being the highest unclimbed mountain in the world. The lowest point, at 98 m (322 ft), is in the valley of Drangme Chhu, where the river crosses the border with India. Watered by snow-fed rivers, alpine valleys in this region provide pasture for livestock, tended by a sparse population of migratory shepherds.

The Black Mountains in the central region of Bhutan form a watershed between two major river systems: the Mo Chhu and the Drangme Chhu. Peaks in the Black Mountains range between 1,500 and 4,925 m (4,921 and 16,158 ft) above sea level, and fast-flowing rivers have carved out deep gorges in the lower mountain areas. The forests of the central Bhutan mountains consist of Eastern Himalayan subalpine conifer forests in higher elevations and Eastern Himalayan broadleaf forests in lower elevations. Woodlands of the central region provide most of Bhutan’s forest production. The Torsa, Raidak, Sankosh and Manas are the main rivers of Bhutan, flowing through this region. Most of the population lives in the central highlands.

In the south, the Shiwalik Hills are covered with dense Himalayan subtropical broadleaf forests, alluvial lowland river valleys, and mountains up to around 1,500 m (4,900 ft) above sea level. The foothills descend into the subtropical Dooars Plain. Most of the Dooars is located in India, although a 10 to 15 km (6.2 to 9.3 mi) wide strip extends into Bhutan. The Bhutan Dooars is divided into two parts: the northern and the southern Dooars.

The northern Dooars, which abut the Himalayan foothills, have rugged, sloping terrain and dry, porous soil with dense vegetation and abundant wildlife. The southern Dooars has moderately fertile soil, heavy savannah grass, dense, mixed jungle, and freshwater springs. Mountain rivers, fed by either the melting snow or the monsoon rains, empty into the Brahmaputra River in India.

Phuntsholing, is a border town in southern Bhutan and is the administrative seat of Chukha District. Phuentsholing adjoins the Indian town of Jaigaon, and cross-border trade has resulted in a thriving local economy. The town has the headquarters of the Bank of Bhutan previously but shifted to Thimphu In 2017.

The wish was granted, and since then, couples have been visiting this place in hopes of a better future.

The Amo Chhu Crocodile Breeding Centre, is undisputedly one of the most popular places to visit in Phuentsholing. Get close to these dangerous creatures in real life, and see them snooze or feed.

Tango Goemba, monastery was founded by Lama Gyalwa Lhanangpa in the 12th century and the present building was built in the 15th century by the “Divine Madman”, Lama Drukpa Kunley. In 1616 Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal visited Tango and meditated in a cave near the monastery. His meditation helped ensure the defeat of an invading Tibetan army. The head Lama, a descendent of Lama Drukpa Kunley presented the goemba to Shabdrung, who carved a sandalwood statue of Chenrezig which he installed in the monastery. The picturesque three-storey tower and several surrounding buildings were built in the 18th century by the eighth Desi, Druk Rabgye and Shabdrung Jigme Chhogyel added the golden roof in the 19th century.
Situated north of Thimphu, one way it takes about 30 minutes drive and one hour walk through shaded rhododendron forests to reach the monastery.

Cheri Goemba, monastery was built by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal in 1620. A silver chorten inside the monastery holds the ashes of Shabdrung’s father. The goemba is situated about half an hour walk from Dodena (alt. 2,600m).
The trail commences by crossing a traditional wooden bridge that spans the Thimphu Chhu, then climbs steeply to the monastery. Being the place where the Shabdrung spent many years in meditation, Cheri today has numerous hermitages and small temples located on its slopes, commanding spectacular views. The one way walk to the monastery is approx 4.5 km, taking about 2 hours.

Botanical Gardens, Serbithang, is located on lush hillside about 10km from the city, the gardens offer a peaceful and relaxing environment to spend a few hours. Botanists will find the wide selection of indigenous trees and plants of interest.

Coronation Park, is located on the banks of the river (near the city stadium), this 5.6 acres of parkland offer a pleasant and relaxing environment to stroll or to sit and watch the river flow by.

Tandin Nye, is about 1 km from the main town, built on a cliff, just like the Tiger’s Nest in Paro. The visit to the temples provides an opportunity to feel and see the great work of ancient Buddhist legends. It is believed that there use to a lake below the lhakhang but now one can found only a marshy area.

Sangaygang – Wangditse loop view point,  situated at an elevation of 2685m and presenting wonderful view of Thimphu valley from the hillside below the telecommunications tower.

After a short and abrupt hike, take the side footpath to right and thereon the trail gets gentler and easier. Above the trail, you’ll also find apple orchard and few farm house. There after the trail drops down gently through oak, blue pine and rhododendron until you reach to Wangditse monastery.  This monastery was founded in 1750 and later totally rebuilt in 2016. The inner chapel houses a two-storey statue of Sakyamuni Buddha. En route, there are excellent views north towards the Samteling Palace, home to the fourth King. The walking tail ends back at Sangaygang view point.

Punakha was the capital of Bhutan until the 1960’s, and still retains the serene atmosphere of a place with a regal past. The dzong is the main attraction, but there are also other sites of interest in and around this pleasant little town. Along with Paro and Jakar, Punakha completes the triangle of most popular tourist destinations.

What To See

Punakha Dzong. Majestically standing on an island between the confluence of the Pho Chhu and Mo Chhu rivers, the city’s dzong is one of the most photogenic of all Bhutan’s ancient fortresses, and you will see pictures of it hanging in hotels and restaurants throughout the country. The dzong is joined to the mainland by an arched wooden bridge, and contains many precious relics from the days when successive kings reigned the kingdom from this valley. The dzong serves as the winter home of the monastic body.

Paro is a historic town with many sacred sites and historical buildings scattered through the area. In addition, the Paro Valley is wide and verdant and is recognized a one of the most beautiful in all Bhutan. Prefer to stay in Paro if you are someone who is fond of nature and would like to spend quiet and peaceful time. However, apart from the main street (which is constructed of traditional wooden structures), the bazaar area is a nondescript hodgepodge of concrete buildings that is totally bereft of charm and character. Along with Jakar and Punakha, Paro forms the ‘golden triangle’ of popular tourist destinations in Bhutan.

What To See

Taktsang Monastery, (Tiger’s Nest). Precariously perched on the edge of a 1,200 meter cliff, this monastery creates an impressive sight, and is the unofficial symbol of Bhutan. It is about 2-3 hour, totally up-hill hike from the parking lot to the monastery, though there is a cafe located on ridge across from the Taktsang (about 90 minutes into the walk) that provides a welcome opportunity to take a rest and purchase refreshments and snacks. The hike up to the Tiger’s Nest can be very strenuous and you can rent a horse to bring up the mountain. The horse ride is a one-way trip (this is recommended if you are not very fit and may face altitude sickness) and you have to make your way down the mountain by foot. Taktsang was established as a sacred place for meditation by Guru Rinpoche who visited the site on his second visit to Bhutan in 747 CE, though the first monastery was not constructed until 1694. In 1998 a tragic fire destroyed most of the original buildings, but these have since been painstakingly restored to their former glory.

National Museum of Bhutan. Located in a former watch tower above the dzong, the museum displays artifacts from Bhutan’s history as well as examples of indigenous flora and fauna.

Rinpung Dzong, which was constructed in 1646.

Drukgyel Dzong This dzong (fortress) was built in the 16th century to commemorate a victory over the invading Tibetan forces. The fortress today lies in ruins, the elements and a fire in the 1950s having taken a toll on the site. Drukyel dzong is about 15 kms from Paro.

Drakhapo, above Shaba (keeping Shaba School to the right, follow the dirt road to end. The complex is a five minute walk from here). Drakhapo is a monastic complex perched on a cliff. Guru Rinpoche spent two months here after completing a retreat at nearby Taktsang, and during his stay placed many treasures into the cliff. The area also has several hand and foot prints embedded in the rock.

Kichu Lhakang is one of the 108 monasteries that were miraculously constructed by King Songten Gampo in one night. It is located just off the road running between Paro bazaar and the Taktsang.

Jangsarbu Lhakhang, located behind Paro Dzong. This small and insignificant looking temple is home to a magnificent statue of Sakyamuni Buddha that was carried all the way from Lhasa, and also houses the protector deity of Paro. Legend has it that the statue of Sakyamuni was destined for Paro Dzong and merely placed in the temple for overnight safe keeping. However, when the time came to move the statue, it proved impossible to lift. As a result, it became a permanent feature of the lhakhang.

Sudipto Bose

We did a quick five day trip of Leh-Ladakh on 24th October 2018. After a long search and one of my friend's reference we had booked our vacation with Himalayan Destination. My friend assured me about Himalayan Destination's service, hospitality and most important thing to always keep on eye on customer's safety, security & satisfaction. Finally we landed directly at Leh and a car waiting for us, and straight to the hotel. Mr. Banerjee had advised us to rest for the day, to acclamitise to that height, which really helped us. Second day we were off to Diskit and Hundur. The dessert and the double humped camel ride were the highlights. Next day we were off to Pangong along the scenic Shyok river. This suggestion by Mr. Banerjee not only helped us cut down travel time but the route was out of the world. Pangong was a sight to behold, the highlight of the trip. It was just beautiful, one of the most beautiful places I visited. We stayed overnight at a nearby village, and the arrangement in this remote place was really cozy. Next day we were back to Leh. Next day we flew back to the grind. The hotel at Leh had a awesome view of the mountain ranges. Unfortunately we didn't stay at camp at Nubra Valley & Pangong Lake due to too cold temperature as well as tent unavailability, but they provide us a memorable stay with heating system entire our journey. Himalayan Destination called us every day to ensure everything was alright and most important thing we never feel alone. Though it was a short trip but they made it a memorable one. Thanks Himalayan Destination and special thanks to Mr. Banerjee for gift us a memorable vacation. We will planing soon with them and highly recommend to all of my friend & family member.

Had a 3N4D Silk route trip with Himalayan Destination during end October '18. Great homestays, good food, homely service. The agency customised our tour on a pretty reasonable price. Growing up very neer to the foothills of the himalaya, the pick of Mt. Kanchanjunga has never been a stranger sight, but I assure you the view of the mighty pick on a crystal clear morning from the Mangkhim homestay balcony, which basically is the famous Mankhim top, will take your breath away. The afternoon clouds of Zulukh, the evening drizzle, the chill of 1°-2°C at night during this time of the year is tolerable yet thrilling. You'll get mesmerized by the fall colours of the late autumn. After you cross the thambi view-point, the 11,200 ft altitude mark, the oranges, the yellows, the reds, the shabby greens of the mountains and the deep blue skies with bright white clouds down below you is a real treat to the eyes. If you're lucky like us you may even find light snow at Kupuk and Gnathang. While coming down the hill, the stay at Phadamchen is more of a relaxation that your body will need. Friendly innkeepers of the homestay shall add warmth to the evening tea. Overall it was a trip to remember. If you're planning a trip to the Sikkim Silk Route with your family like we did, it is advisable to book through any good travel service provider unless you have enough experice of Sikkim. Himalayan Destination is the "go to guy" especially for The Silk Route.

We are from Delhi and booked our Gangtok & North Sikkim tour with Himalayan Destination. They offered us an unbelievable package. After seeing the package we are totally shocked how can they gave us this package with this reasonable price. But we had booked this package with this travel company. They guide us genuinely because we have no idea about Sikkim. When we reach NJP railway station car was waiting for us since 3 hours, as our train was late. Stat our journey to Gangtok and check in to the hotel. They gave us a super deluxe valley facing room. Our North Sikkim hotel was also great with wonderful facility & service. Finally we completed our holiday with lots of memories. Highly recommended this travel agency to all and we definitely go with this travel agency in future. Finally they fulfill there commitment and we have also commit them for long term relationship. Transport service - 8 out of 10 Hotel - 9 out of 10 Food - 9 out of 10 Service - 10 out of 10 Special thanks to Mr. Banerjee for arrange a such kind of memory for us. Anyone can blindly believe on this agency.

Silk Route journey from 27/10/18 - 30/10/18 1st we went to zuluk instead of Mankhim.It was some hectic ome. Homestay and food at Zuluk is excellent.Then we reached to Padamchen.Luckyly weather was clear and we see snow clapped mountain from enroute. Homestay was remarkable but food was not up to the mark compare to last night.After that we reached to Mankhim, luckily we have got a cottage and food was also nice. Allover the tour, vehicle and homestay was nice and well organize. Specially Mr.Prasun Banerjee's behaviour was very helpful. So I give this agency 4.5 out of 5. Highly recommend to others.

I just completed a nice trip of Silk Route and Gangtok with Himalayan Destination and the arrangements were mostly upto the mark. Mr. Prasun Banerjee had taken all the possible measures to make the trip memorable including transportation and lodging. However fooding could have been better in Gangtok and that should be looked into for betterment. But all in all it was fine. Thanks for the lovely and memorable trip Mr. Banerjee.

It is a six star experience with Himalayan Destination. Generally I don't write review unless it is mind blowing experience or somehow bad for me. Here my reason is absolutely first one. Not a single complain from my end. You are just the best I have ever experience. In a nutshell most economic and genuine travel with my family organised by Himalayan Destination. When you travel with your family there are plenty of things you need to consider before stepping out. The most important the safety, comfort and living environment. Then comes to your budget. Everything had been taken care with responsibility. We people feels like a client not a customer. They are so good consultant also you can get genuine advice while making your plan. I can assure you you can not get all this in this so low cost price. I did travel Vizag Araku with them. we were eight members in the group with the age group from 20 to 70 years. We got super Deluxe sea facing AC room with great CAB for travelling. Hotel stuffs are great with attitude and provide pure Bengali food with option of choosing menu in every food(Breakfast, Lunch, evening snacks and dinner). The did pack our food(Breakfast and Lunch) at 6 o'clock morning at the day of Araku visit. CAB driver is so responsible and punctual every time and called up so many times when we are late in any moment. Remember this travel partner will call you everyday to make sure you are safe and comfortable during the trip. Prasun Banerjee Long way to go. Please keep doing your great job and make us happy traveler. Best wish for you brother.
