Thimphu with a twist
Begin after an early breakfast with a five-hour trek to Dodedrak, the best day-trek around Thimphu, and offers amazing views back over the valley. You arrive at a hidden monk village with the 12th-century temple of Dodedrak at the centre. See the amazing paintings and murals on display, before meeting and monks and sitting down with them for a picnic lunch. Head back to Thimphu and visit Zone, where you see the modern side of Bhutan with its many cafes and music shops, tuck into ‘momos’ and talk to a Bhutanese local in their 20s about how the modern world is changing the country. Finish off with a cocktail or two at Om Bar.
