Central Bhutan includes some of the most significant historical and religious sites in the country. The district of Trongsa has always been of great political importance to the leaders of Bhutan due to its commanding location in the centre of the nation while Bumthang district has some of the most ancient and important temples and monasteries in Bhutan.
The Kurjey festival - held in June - is an important occasion not only for the local people of Bumthang but for all Bhutanese. The festival brings together tourists and Bhutanese from all over as it presents the perfect occasion to not only receive blessings by witnessing age-old mask dances but also to enjoy this unique culture whilst basking in the natural beauty of Bhutan's spiritual heartland.
Paro features the Grand Fortress which is built on a cliff resembling a mound of jewels. The National Museum is highly acclaimed but the highlight has to be Mount Jomolhari over shadowing the town. Famous for treks, it is nothing short of exquisite when covered in snow. This, and so much more, await your arrival.
