Known as the Last Shangri-La, this beautiful gem of a country offers panoramic valleys, majestic Himalayan mountains and abundant evergreen forests. With a kaleidoscope of scenery and experiences, Bhutan awaits with discoveries to be uncovered.
The timepiece of Bhutan
Situated right in the heart of Thimphu, just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, the clock tower is one of the best known landmarks in the capital. An impeccable blend of culture and art, it is adorned with traditional dragons.
One of the largest statues of Buddha in the world
Overlooking the southern entrance, Buddha Point, also known as the Buddha Dordenma Statue, sits atop a hill in Kuensel Phodrang. Immerse yourself in the Himalayan scenery and discover a sense of calm as the giant statue towers above.
The seat of Bhutanese government
Close to Thimphu town, next to the banks of the Wang Chhu River, the impressive fortress of Tashichho Dzong houses the throne room and offices of the king, the secretariat and the ministries of home affairs and finance. It is surrounded by well-kept lawns and beautiful gardens.
