Dochula Pass stands out as one of Bhutan's most renowned destinations, sitting proudly at an elevation of 10,200 feet along the route from the present capital of Thimphu to the former capital, Punakha. While it is widely recognized for its breathtaking scenery, Dochula Pass holds a hidden gem for those willing to explore beyond the touristy crowds. Nestled into the hills just above the pass, meditation caves await the inquisitive few. These quaint caverns, resembling something out of a fairy tale with their stone construction and vibrant Buddhist imagery, offer a serene escape. Adorned with colorful depictions of Buddhist symbolism, including the iconic druk (dragon)—Bhutan's cherished national symbol—hovering over the cave entrances, these hidden sanctuaries are said to bring blessings and fortune to those who discover them.

Visitors flock to the monastery daily, drawn by the belief that wishes made here are swiftly granted.

After breakfast, we will drive to Taktsang Lhakhang, Bhutan’s most iconic religious site and landmark, known as "The Tiger’s Nest," this temple holds immense significance in the kingdom. Perched precariously on a sheer cliff face 900 meters above the Paro Valley, it was originally constructed in 1692 at the cave where Guru Rimpoche meditated in the 7th century A.D. According to legend, Guru Rimpoche arrived at the site atop the back of a tigress and meditated in the cave for 3 years, 3 months, 3 days, and 3 hours to vanquish the evil demons dwelling within it.


Take the day to relax and enjoy the comforts of your hotel, renowned for its picturesque terraces offering serene views. Indulge in the tranquil atmosphere while lunch is prepared.

Tourism council of Bhutan states in its directive:

''While tourism may be important as a revenue earner, Bhutan sees no gain in succumbing to over commercialism. It recognizes that a small country emerging from isolation must do so in its own time and at its own pace. The Tourism council of Bhutan is clear that its policy of high value, low volume is the right policy because Bhutan is just too small for mass tourism. And as the world begins to discover the Land of the Thunder Dragon, many go away with a sense of having been in a special place, far from the insanity of modern living. Here is a land where life may not be materially luxurious, but it provides much that is good for a society that is not yet caught up with the global rat race”
