A two-hour drive from Paro, Thimphu lies in a steep valley at an altitude of 2,350m, surrounded by richly forested mountains dotted with ancient monasteries and lhakhangs (temples). The town is built up from the Thimphu Chhu (river) and is centred by the quaint Clock Tower and its surrounding lanes of shops, vegetable and meat markets, and assorted local restaurants. As Bhutan’s capital city, Thimphu is home to many attractions and  activities, including the National Textile Museum, Folk Heritage Museum and the bustling Changlingmethang Market. It also houses the seat of government and the office of His Majesty, King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, in the majestic Tashichoe Dzong.

Nearby, one can visit Pangri Zampa, two 16th century buildings that now house a monastic astrologer training school. At the head of the valley, a walk across one of the country’s oldest cantilever bridges leads to Cheri Goemba where the Kingdom’s first monk community was based. Thimphu’s main street provides an opportunity to shop for Himalayan jewellery and Bhutanese handicrafts and textiles.

A hike to Cheri Goemba, home to the Kingdom’s first monastic body, is recommended.

The Spa in Amankora Thimphu offers royal Bhutanese treatments using local herbs, given the close proximity of the Royal Palace.  As Thimphu is an active place and the site of much socialising, the focus of spa treatments is to provide a peaceful haven where addition of a little glamour through herbal applications leaves guests feeling pampered, beautiful and regal.
