Step back in time in Bhutan’s medieval capital of Thimpu

When you first tour Thimphu, it can feel like you have taken a step back into a medieval folk tale.

The first city of Bhutan lies in a beautiful wooded valley on the banks of the Thimphu Chhu River. Its vibrant streets are charmingly flanked by brightly painted and elaborately decorated facades. The home of the Bhutanese Royal Family remains the only world capital without a single traffic light.

Countless picturesque, sights and historical treasures compete for your attention. The Thimphu Chorten is simply other-worldly: this Tibetan-style Buddhist monastery has golden spires that reach into the clear blue mountain sky. At the Folk Heritage Museum you can gain a fascinating insight into rural Bhutanese life.

But there’s much more to Thimphu than spectacular architecture and echoes from a fantastic past.

This friendly city also boasts a terrific choice of restaurants and cafes where you can quench your thirst and slowly work your way through all the local treats. And your deluxe A&K accommodation is certainly equipped with charming river views and all mod cons.
