Once we got our permits from the border town of Phuentsholing, we set off to Thimpu. The drive was something which I would never forget! We were driving the in clouds. While I had heard a lot about the roads of Butan, you need to be there to actually believe it. Smooth roads in the hills added to the calmness and beauty of the country. We were just soaking in the beautiful weather, when we reached Thimpu after 7 hours. The entrance gate at Thimpu just re-assures of what lies ahead. After resting overnight in our hotel, we set off to explore the city early next morning. We visted all the major monuments and tourist-y places, ate at the local cafe, but what topped it all was the extremely friendly nature of the locals. And oh, not to mention the nightlife of Thimpu!
