The western circuit comprises the six western districts in the country: Thimphu, Paro, Haa, Wangdue Phodrang, Punakha, and Gasa. What distinguishes this circuit is the Department of Tourism  Bhutan’s innovative approach to exploring the existing magnificent sights.

Within this circuit, you can immerse yourself in the vibrant summer festival of Haa and delve deep into the ancient living culture of the Haaps (People from Haa). The festival showcases Shamanic rituals and captivating folk dances. Additionally, you can revel in the beauty of rare Himalayan flowers in full bloom or embark on an adventurous trek to Nob Tsonapatra, steeped in intriguing local legends.

In Thimphu, you can witness the newly introduced Festival, MICE & GNH conferences, along with meditation and wellness facilities. Explore temples, dzongs (fortresses), and museums, or partake in a textile festival that brings the rich culture of Bhutanese weaving to life.

Marvel at the historical depictions of medieval Bhutanese warriors defending the country with swords and shields during the Punakha Tsechu/festival. These festivals occur throughout the year, offering opportunities for tailored trips.

Experience the ritualistic planting of rice in early summer or the joyous harvest in autumn. The golden hue of ripening rice fields during autumn is a delight for photographers. Western Bhutan boasts some of the country’s finest museums, providing an opportunity to delve into our storied history and traditional culture. For instance, the Paro Museum (Tadzong) showcases hundreds of artifacts unveiling Bhutan’s history and culture.
