After an early breakfast, head off to the permit office to apply for the inner line permit of Punakha.

Post that, drive 18kms north, to the base point of the Tango & Cheri Monastery hike

Tango and Cheri Goemba come at the top of the list if you are looking for day hikes and trails around Thimphu. These are two beautiful monasteries set on two side hills with Thimphu Chu (River) flowing right in the middle.

Trail to Tango Monastery Hike starts right next to Parking lot and takes around an hour while for Cheri Monastery Hike, you have to walk a little by the side of river before you start your ascend, also being around an hour one way.

In the evening return to Thimphu, collect your permits. If time permits, visit the Tashichho Dzong, a fortress and Buddhist monastery with a distinctive Bhutanese architectural design. Sitting aside the Wang Chhu river, it is the current seat of the Druk Desi, the head of the civil government and houses the offices of the current king.


Day 4
20th Nov | Thimphu > Punakha | Dochula & Lobesa Village

Private Vehicle

Homestay

Breakfast, Dinner

Start early. After breakfast drive to Punakha, the former capital of Bhutan until 1955. En route, visit the 169 foot tall bronze statue of the seated Buddha Dordenma. One of the largest sitting Buddha statues in the world, it sits atop a hill where you will get the sweeping views of the valley and the surrounding mountains.

From here, drive to Dochula Pass, which provides a panoramic 360 degree view of the Himalayas and then head off to Lobesa village to visit the famous Chimi Lhakhang temple

Chimi Lhakhang is also known as the ‘Temple of Fertility’. The temple is dedicated to Lama Drukpa Kunley, fondly known as ‘Divine Madman’ because of his non-conventional and ‘outrageous’ style of teaching. He was a social critic and openly challenged the hypocrisy of the established orders. Thus, the use of his Phallus (Penis) as a ‘flaming thunderbolt’ weapon symbolizes the discomfort that society experiences while facing the truth. Devotees take blessings from the wooden effigy of the lama’s thunderbolt, preserved in the lhakhang. Couples also come to the temple before the birth of baby to select their names while newborns are brought by parents for blessings from Lama. To get to the temple, you need to pass through Lobesa village. Lobesa village offers a glimpse of the rural Bhutan as you come across the farms and houses with unique Bhutanese architecture (huge white walls with wood carving on doors, windows and roof). And yes, Phallus (Penis) is very comfortably painted on almost every second house as you walk along.


Day 5
21st Nov | Explore Punakha | River Rafting & Punakha Dzong

Private Vehicle

Homestay

Breakfast, Dinner

After an early breakfast, head off for river rafting either at the Mo chhu or Po chhu river.

Spend the evening at the Punakha Dzong. Punakha Dzong is undoubtedly the most beautiful and charming Dzong in Bhutan, standing tall right at the confluence of two rivers Pho Chhu (Father River) and Mo Chhu (Mother River). You will be completely mesmerized with this Dzong, especially in spring when it is enveloped by lilac coloured Jacaranda flowers spread against the white washed towering walls. The Dzong from the inside is equally beautiful with a large courtyard lined with administrative buildings on 3 sides and a huge temple at the front. Wooden carving of roof and windows against huge whitewashed walls adds to the charm of this beautiful edifice. Towards the end is the ‘hundred pillar’ assembly hall temple with massive gold statues of Lord Buddha, Guru Rinpoche and Divine Madman. You would love to sit in the temple and inhale the calmness deep within you.

If time permits, you can hike to Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten behind the Dzong.
Built in 2004 by the Queen of Bhutan, Khamsum Yulley Namgyal is a chorten, or stupa, overlooking the Punakha Valley. It was built with a specific function in mind: to ward off evil spirits in Bhutan and across the world, and to bring peace and harmony to all living things.

Appx time: 2 hrs

Built over the caves that Guru Padmasambhava meditated in for three years, this eighth-century father of Bhutan Buddhism is said to have been brought there on the back of a tigress.

"The Great Escape" upholds its name, literally! Among the couple of trekking organisations that I have hiked with in Himalayas, TGE is one of the best. They plan the trek very well, adapting the route and camping locations to factors like weather and the footfall. The support staff is experienced and deft, food great, and trekking practices "green". The organisers themselves are friendly and look after the group well. At the same time, they are firm, decisive, and in a mode of continuous improvement! It is a pleasure trekking with TGE, and I would highly recommend them! Good luck Reetu & Jamila...and keep rocking !

I have attended only one trip/event with TGE as of now and I loved it. It was well organized, the organizer was really cooperative and helped everyone in the team to make the trip a memorable one. I'd highly recommend this group to all friends and family and would love to attend their future events. Thank you.
