Mekong Delta day tour – Cai Rang floating market

Mr. Ninh arranged a wonderful trip for us from Saigon to the Cai Rang floating market. I tried to arrange a day trip to Cai Rang with other more reviewed Mekong delta tour groups with no luck. They would only go to Cai Be in one day, which is not the same as Cai Rang.  All in all, a great tour and just what I wanted!

Day 06 Departure From Paro Airport

Day 01:Arrival at Paro Airport, Paro Sight Seeing.

Bhutan is almost a secluded country and your landing to this tiny Thunder Dragon kingdom itself is extraordinary in its own little ways. Once in the nation’s only airline the Drukair, you will have a breathtaking sight of the great Himalayan peaks including the Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world and many other peaks in the Kanchenjunga range. This adventure will be soon followed by the air view of the Paro valley which is adorned with lush green coniferous forests, in the valley of which is located the Paro International Airport, where our representative will welcome you wholeheartedly with a pleasant smile. What will amaze you more is the beautiful meandering of the Pachhu (Paro River) that drains the ParoValley which in the autumn season are fully in ripe with paddy. Before you could leave the Airport for the most hospitable hotel, the sighting of ParoDzong (fortress) and Ta Dzong (watchtower) on the hills above the town will distract you to discover the Typical Bhutan in its pure aboriginal form. However, you will have to clear the formalities at the Airport to reach the best hotel, which we will book for your best convenience.

Afternoon:

Now that having seen the external beauty of the ParoTa Dzong, you would be tempted to see what is inside it; therefore, it will be our moral responsibility to take you to the Ta Dzong (National Museum) formerly a watchtower. The museum collection includes ancient Bhutanese art and artifacts, weapons, coins, stamps and a small natural history collection. Then walking down the hillside trail, we will reach RinpungDzong (ParoDzong), which is situated at a commanding height overlooking Paro valley which was built by great saint ShabdrungNgawangNamgyal in 1646. This dzong now house the offices of the civil administration and the Monastic body of Parorabdey, thus signifying the true blend of religious and secular heads in the country.

After that, we will visit KyichuLhakhang(temple), which is one of the oldest and most sacred temples of the Kingdom as its establishment date back to as early as 7th century.

(Overnight at Paro.)

Day 02: Paro – Thimphu

As you travel towards Thimphu, the Capital city of Bhutan, which is an hour drive from Paro, we will visit TachoLhakhang, and reaching the capital, we will reach you to your hotel. You will be then escorted to the National Memorial Chorten, built in memory of late 3rd King JigmeDorjiWangchuk in 1974.

After lunch, we will take you for a short hike to Tango Monastry. Tango is the Centre of Higher Studies for Buddhist scholars. The hike will take you around 45 minutes, and from there you can have a breathtaking view of the lower valleys. Then we will drive you back to Thimphu in the evening.

(Overnight at Thimphu)

Day 03: Thimphu to Punakha.(77 km 3 hours drive).

Soon after an early breakfast, we will drive you towards the next district, i.e. Punakha. Climbing uphill through beautiful evergreen pine forests, you will soon have an amazing sight of DrukWangyalChorten, a series of 108 tiny stupas surrounding a big one and a beautiful temple exhibiting the true cultural identity of the country on top of a pass called Dochu La (3,088m/ 10,130 ft. If the skies are clear, the following peaks can be seen from this pass (left to right); Masagang (7,158m), Tsendagang (6,960m), Teri gang (7,060m ), Jejegangphugang (7,158 m ), Kangphugang (7,170 m ), Zongphugang (7,060 m ), a table mountain that dominates the isolated region of Lunana, and finally Gangkarpuensum, the highest peak in Bhutan at 7,497m.

From Dochu-la pass, it is a long, winding descent into Punakha and WangduePhodrang valley, which is about 1,700m below the pass. On the way behind Dochula, we will stop at Lampelri to see the Royal Botanical Park. After lunch, you will visit PunakhaDzong, a massive structure built at the junction of two rivers. Punakha was Bhutan’s capital until 1955 and PunakhaDzong still serves as the winter residence of the central monk body. Bhutan’s first King, UgyenWangchuck, was crowned there in 1907. The fortress withstood several damages from fire, earthquake and flood over the centuries. The latest flood, in October, 1994, caused great damages to the fortress but miraculously spared its most holy statue, which you can see it today also.

A pleasant stay in a hotel in Punakha would add more glamour to your already stunned stay in this kingdom of happiness.

(Overnight at Punakha).

Day 04: Punakha-Wangdue-Thimphu.

In the morning,you will get this opportunity to visit ChimmiLhakhang temple built in 1499 by Lama DrukpaKuenley who was famously known as the “divine madman”. Hearing how he had subdued the demons would simply shock and stun you, so this for a time being, we will keep it as a surprise for you. A wooden effigy of the Lama’s thunderbolt is being preserved in the Lhakhang, which is believed to have certain spiritual powers to restore fertility to childless women. Thus, many childless women visit the temple to get blessings.

After than we will drive you to Waqndue to see the strategic location of Wangduedzong, now in ruins due to the massive fire in June 2012. We will then retrace back our path towards Thimphu. Reaching Thimphu, you will get this opportunity of visiting the following sites;

The National Library,

Folk Heritage Museum,

The School of Thangka Painting.

Institute of Traditional Medicines.

TashiChoedzoong.

The Parliament House.

(Overnight at Thimphu)

Day 05: Thimphu – Paro, DrugyalDzong, Taktshang Hike.

In the morning, you will move back to Paro, and go directly to see the ruins of DrugyalDzong. Returning from there we will stop at the base of taktshang. Taking a tea, we will hike up to Takstang, one of the famous destinations in the world. This will remain as one of your fond memories n besides of Bhutan besides others.

You may roam leisurely in the town, do shoppings, and move by the ancient wooden bridge below the Parodzong.

(Overnight at Paro).

Day 06: Departure from Paro Airport.

We will see you off at the Paro Airport for your next destination.
