Day 1

The moment we crossed the India border and entered Bhutan we could a different vibe here, a less chaotic , peaceful, happy one.
On the entire route to Thimphu, the capital city, we could see beautiful landscapes of mountains!

Pretty Pine Trees Everywhere ????

Day 2

Next day involved exploring the city of Thimphu and it's major attractions.
Most exciting part was the witnessing the biggest cultural festival "Thimphu Tsechu".
Saw every color together that I could ever possibly see !

Day 3

Heading towards the next destination of the trip which was Paro. *read the cutest city*
This place mesmerized me the moment I entered it.
Situated in a valley , surrounded by gigantic mountains , with a small crystal clear river flowing through it.
Couldn't have asked for anything else!

Day 4

The highlight of the trip - Taktsang Monastery Trek
The length of the trek is around 5 miles (two way) with an starting elevation of 8525 feet and maximum elevation of 10,232 feet.
Never have I ever trekked this long before so it was a little exhausting yet a fun one.
The beauty of the place only encouraged me to complete it and trust me it was totally worth!

Half way there!
