Top 5 Destination for a Romantic Bhutan Honeymoon
If you are wondering which can be the first honeymoon place in Bhutan that you visit, I have to say, it is Paro. It is true, I am sure because the only International Airport in Bhutan is here. Moreover, the valley itself has various famous attractions ranging from the National Museum to the glorious Rinpung Dzong (Paro Dzong), the oldest temple – Kyichu, and the iconic Taktsang Goemba – the Tiger’s Nest. A hiking trip to the Tiger’s Nest, indeed, is so exciting; however, it is even more exhilarating if you go with your soulmate. Take a drive through winding roads of craggy mountains that overlooks the pine groves and rice fields will be wonderful and unforgettable.
The capital city of Bhutan, Thimphu is known as the only world capital that does not have traffic lights. However, what makes Thimphu is worth for a Bhutan Honeymoon? It’s mainly because the valley is an unusual combination of modern development and ancient traditions. There would be some attraction that you and your soulmate have to visit like Tashichho Dzong, Simtoka Dzong, Dechen Phodrang, Dordenma Statue. If you are in love with animals, let head to Motithang Takin Preserve.
Bhutan is truly a paradise for those loving nature and Bumthang is a good example. The valley gives you stunning vistas of green nature, fresh condition, and so much vibrant thing to discover. If you are into something adventurous, let enjoy the treks to Burning Lake. Besides, there are several attractions that you should visit such as Jakar Dzong, Kurje Lhakhang, Jambay Lhakhang….
One of the best places for a Bhutan Honeymoon, Trongsa Village, is a quaint, small, and misty destination in Bhutan. Highly recommend you heading to the Trongsa Dzong (built in the 17th century), the main attraction here, overlooking the Mangde Chhu gorges. Not only catching a glimpse of marvelous religious architecture but also admiring the stunning natural surroundings, what can be better than that?
If you want to enjoy a Bhutan honeymoon without crowded streets, Ha valley – the 2nd least populated region in Bhutan, would be your thing. I cannot describe the beauty of Haa because I have no word to tell you how beautiful the valley exactly is. Once visiting there, besides admiring the natural beauty, do not miss some of these attractions like Dobji Dzong, Shekhar Drak, Black and White Temple, and so on.
