You might also see several splendid examples of traditional architecture and richly decorated buildings in and around Paro.

Day 2 - Paro

Today drive to Chelila Pass to enjoy a splendid  view of the Himalayas and properly start your Bhutan trekking adventure. Walk over the ridges on the southern face of the pass to spot the Himalayan Serow. The conifers and sub-alpine forests around Chelila is an ideal habitat for the exotic mammal. We might also spot musk deers and mountain foxes. Drive back to Paro in the afternoon. En route, stop to visit the Dzongdrakha Temple. Spot capped langurs on the nearby cliffs, where they forage for acorns and wild rose berries.

Day 3 - Paro to Punakha

Leave Paro and drive towards Punakha. Go across the Dochula Pass (3,050m), where you will get a spectacular view of Bhutan's towering snow-clad mountains. Lots of fluttering and colorful prayer flags adorn this pass. Be on the look out for yaks grazing by the roadside. Enjoy a four hour walk through the area's villages and forests. You may be able to spot bears, Muntjac deer, wild boars, Rhesus monkeys, hill partridges, and Kalij pheasants here. In the evening, reach Lapchaka, from where the vehicle will take you to your hotel at Punakha.

The Jigme Dorji is the largest national park in Bhutan. It covers an area of about 4,329 sq km and is home to snow leopards, musk deers, Himalayan black bears, red pandas, sambar deers, and barking deers.

Day 5 - Jigme Dorji National Park to Punakha

The park warden shall accompany you today as you set out to explore the deep jungles in search of the  Bhutan’s national animal. The strange appearance has an interesting legend behind it. According to this legend, the takin was created by a divine madman (Drukpa Kinley), who put a cow’s head on a goat’s body!

If we are lucky, we may also spot a tiger or a Himalayan black bear. You will notice that the vegetation around here consists mainly of bamboo thickets and the terrain is  very uneven and steep. Later, you drive back to your hotel at Punakha.
