Dates: Oct 21st - 28th (Dussehra holiday!)


Have you ever wondered what makes a country gain the status of being one of the happiest countries in the world? Well, wonder no more, come witness it for yourself. We’re taking you to the Last Shangri La, Bhutan!
A visit to this country is as if one has entered another era. Ancient monasteries to ruins of a fortress, sights of how the Bhutanese royalty resided to lands where brave soldiers are honoured, this trip is a walk down nostalgia lane. We’ll be visiting Dochula Pass where a one of a kind sight of 100s of stupas is witnessed on one hand and the panoramic view of mighty Himalayas, some of the tallest in the country are seen!
We’ll be trekking up to Tiger’s Nest, a monastery buried in a cave-like structure that too on the edge of a cliff. Time to amp up the adrenaline rush! Plus plunge into a peaceful state of mind as we visit monasteries in this Buddhist land.

Oct 21st, Saturday: Land at Bagdogra airport by or before 2pm and then board the magic bus to make way to Bhutan! We’ll be driving to Phuentsholing, India’s Gateway to Bhutan. Converse with new friends, sing along and share stories, you’ve entered the Land of Hapiness! O/N Phuentsholing

Oct 25th, Wednesday: Some days of our lives remain etched in our minds forever, this is going to be one such day as we’re headed to Tiger’s Nest! Perched on the edge of a cliff. Built back in 1692, we’ll be trekking up to this monastery where Guru Rinpoche is believed to have flown on top of a tigress. Reaching the cave at an altitude of roughly 3,000m plus is a delight, especially when you fulfill it with a gang of mad people who will all squeal together from the cliff top!O/N Paro 

Oct 26th, Thursday: Today, we’ll all sing,“kya ada, kya jalwe tere Paro!”. Hehe bad jokes aside, we ain’t kidding about the singing because we’re going to have you explore the oh so pretty town of Paro. First, we’ll see the confluence point of two rivers, Wang Chhu and Paro Chhu, witness their waves melt into one another. Later, Drukgyel Dzong – ruins of an old fortress and Kyushu Lhakhang – a historic monastery are all beckoning you. Who’s game for trying out archery? Let’s go! O/N Paro
