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.
