Morning drive to Buddha Point to Practice a YOGA session. Back to the hotel for breakfast and drive to Tango Monastery. Tango is the highest center of Buddhist learning in the country; almost every Je Khenpo (religious head of Bhutan) completed the 9-year program there. After completing that program, monks traditionally spend 3 years, 3 months, and 3 days in mediation at the nearby Cheri Goemba retreat, built-in 1619 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, the founder or first unifier of Bhutan. The estimated ascend time is 45 minutes.

An option to practice meditation in Tango Monastery for 30 minutes. The serene environment and peaceful experience help you clear your mind and gather greater focus and concentration

Additional Trek Option: Travelers may choose to trek to Chari Monastery after Tango, which is another one-and-a-half-hour trek.
Chari Gompa: Chari Monastery was established in 1620 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, the founder and unifier of Bhutan in memory of his late father Tenpai Nyima. Zhabdrung established the first Drukpa Kagyu monastic order here.
Sangaygang: Drive about 15 minutes from the main city to a hillock where the Bhutan Broadcasting Tower is stationed. From there you can relish the beautiful scene of the whole of Thimphu City. On the way up or down from the hillock, you can also see Takin, the national animal of Bhutan.
Changangkha Monastery: Built in 12th century, Changangkha Lhakhang is the oldest temple in Thimphu, which is a fortress-like temple and monastic school perched on a ridge above Thimphu.

We will head towards Punakha today, the ancient capital of Bhutan in the morning. The roads bring visitors through scented pine and cedar forests, festooned with hanging lichen. The Punakha River is one of the biggest rivers in Bhutan. During spring and winter, the color of the river turns jade and is beautiful.
Dochula Pass: At 3,050m, this beautiful pass with its 108 Bhutanese stupas is the memorial site of fallen Bhutanese soldiers in the 1990s.Yoga session in Dochula outside the monastery
Chhimi Lhakhang: A 20-minute’ walk across terraced fields through the village of Sopsokha from the roadside to the small temple located on a hillock in the center of the valley below Metshina. NgawangChogyel built the temple in the 15th century after the 'Divine Madman' Drukpa Kuenlay built a small chorten there. It is a pilgrim site for aspiring mothers.
Punakha Dzong: Built-in 1637, the dzong continues to be the winter home for the clergy, headed by the Chief Abbott, the Je Khenpo. It is a stunning example of Bhutanese architecture, sitting at the fork of two rivers, portraying the image of a medieval city from a distance.

Pho Chhu Suspension Bridge (Do go for this)

If time permits, Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten: Built by the third Queen Mother Ashi Tshering Yangdon Wangchuck this Chorten is a splendid example of Bhutanese architecture and art and is the only one of its kind in the world. Its details have been drawn from religious scriptures.

The valley of Phobjikha is well known as the winter home of the Black-necked crane (GrusNigricollis). Bhutan is home to around five hundred black-necked cranes with Phobjikha being one of the popular places that the birds migrate to in the winter months from the Tibetan plateau. The elegant birds can be observed from early November to the end of March. Overlooking the Phobjikha valley is the Gangtey Goempa. This is an old monastery that dates to the 17th century. Yoga Session in Open Valley of Phobjikha
Black-Necked Crane Information Centre: which has informative displays about the cranes and the valley environment. You can use the center’s powerful spotting scopes and check what you see against its pamphlet ‘Field Guide to Crane Behaviors.
Gangtey Goempa: Situated south of the road and east of Wangdue Phodrang, is Gangtey Gompa, an old monastery dating back to the 17th century. The gompa, on the valley floor, is the village of Phobjika. This is the winter home of the famous, black-necked cranes. The cranes migrate from the high plains of the Tibetan plateau in winter to the milder climate of Phobjika. The short journey south from the main east-west artery is well worth the detour. Have dinner with a local family.

Taktsang Monastery is a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and temple complex located on the cliff side of Paro Valley. It is believed that Guru Rinpoche flew to this location on the back of a Tigress (his consort Yeshey Tshogyal) and meditated in one of the caves. Guru Rinpoche performed meditation and emerged in eight manifestations and the place became holy. Thus, gaining the name tiger’s nest.
Drukgyal Dzong: A drive, north of Paro Valley brings us to the ruins of Drukgyal Dzong.

Kyichu Lhakhang: is one of the oldest temples in Bhutan. Just like the Jambhay Lhakhang in Bumthang, it is one of the 108 temples built by the Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo to subdue and pin down an ogress that was obstructing the spread of Buddhism.
