We will visit Changangkha temple, perched on the hilltop overlooking the town. Devotees flock throughout the day to circumambulate and turn the prayer wheels.
The temple also contains beautiful wall paintings and hundreds of religious scriptures written in gold.
We can also browse the striking collection of intricate textiles at the National Textile Museum and visit the Folk Heritage Museum and the handmade paper making factory. In the afternoon you can take in more of the sights and culture of the capital.
Join us as we try the national sport of archery this afternoon, using traditional wooden bows. If we are lucky, our guides may also introduce us to Khuru – the Bhutanese form of darts.
Then, drive up to the Radio Tower (offering splendid views of the city from a hilltop festooned with prayer flags), and visit the Takin Reserve showcasing the unique national animal, the Takin.
