In addition to places of interest in Paro, Thimphu and Punakha, another fascinating destination is the sacred valley of Bumthang. The picturesque drive to Bumthang takes you through regions profuse in flora and fauna, several magnificent mountain passes and places of great historical importance. The Tongsa Dzong is a prime example. It is by far the largest Dzong in the country and was in olden times the seat of the dominant power in feudal Bhutan.

A three hours drive from Tongsa takes you up to a height of 12000 feet (Yotola pass) and then down to 9000 feet to the valley of Bumthang. Considered the most sacred valley, Bumthang has a rich variety of religious, historical sites and ancient palaces of the ruling family of the valley. The cultural trip of Bumthang also includes a three days walking excursion to the sanctified spot where Guru Padmasambhava meditated. He was a great saint who converted the Bhutanese from pagan worshippers to peace loving Buddhists.
