- PARO | THIMPU

This morning is an early start for the flight to Paro. On arrival the road follows the river all the way to the capital Thimpu, where in recent years much development has occurred but where there are still no traffic lights.
After lunch cross the oldest cantilevered covered bridge for the trek through pine and oak forests to Cheri Goemba the first Buddhist Monastic school from 1627 that still contains many sacred relics and is a meditation centre for higher level Buddhist studies.
