What to see? About the region

  • The Tiger's Nest monastery in Bhutan

    Paro Taktsang

    Also known as the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, this beautiful shrine dedicated to the Guru Padmasambhava, clings to the mountain side in the upper Paro Valley. Built around a cave where Padmasambhava is said to have meditated, this is without a doubt one of the most iconic sights in Bhutan.
  • Monastery Tashichho Dzong in Thimphu


    The capital of Bhutan sits in the base of a valley on the banks of the Raidak river in the west of the country. There are some amazing things to see here including the impressive Tashichho Dzong, a fortified monastery with roofs of gold leaf and the revered Memorial Chorten.
  • Temple overlooking the river in Punakha, Bhutan


    From Thimphu, a beautiful drive over the Dochu La pass will take you to the town of Punakha. Home to the second largest Dzong in Bhutan and located on the confluence of two rivers, the scenery is superb. On the way there you can stop to visit the village of Sopsokha, famous for its vast array of phalluses.
