Bhutan is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It’s a country that has so much to offer, whether you’re going with your spouse or another person. Here are six places to see and things to do when in Bhutan with your spouse:
Visit Paro Taktsang Monastery: This monastery is known for being perched on top of a mountain, which is where you’ll find the Tiger’s, Nest Temple. You can hike up to see it or take a cable car ride up there.
Go on a hike at Phobjikha Valley: If you want to get away from the crowds, this is an excellent place to visit because it’s far away from any major city in Bhutan. Horseback riding and visiting local villages where handicrafts are made using traditional techniques passed down through generations of people who lived here long before tourism became widely accepted throughout Asia.
Chhimi Lhakhang: The first place to visit in Bhutan is Chhimi Lhakhang, which is located in the Paro valley. This temple is dedicated to Guru Rinpoche and his two consorts, Yeshe Tsogyal and Mandarava.
Taktshang Monastery: Second on our list is Taktshang Monastery, which is also known as Tiger’s Nest Monastery. It can be found at an altitude of 3,000 meters above sea level. The monastery was built on a rock cliff that has a flat top that looks like the head of a tiger. It is believed that Guru Rinpoche meditated here for three years until he attained enlightenment.
Draaymar Cave: Third on the list of places to see in Bhutan with your spouse would be Draaymar Cave, which is located near Paro town. The cave contains ancient statues of Buddha as well as rare paintings depicting stories from Buddha’s life and teachings written in gold ink on black stone walls by devotees centuries ago during the reign of the second King, Ugyen Wangchuk (1855-1926).
Dzong Paro Dzong:This dzong is located right next to the Paro Taktshang Monastery and was established in 1646 by Ngawang Namgyal, who was a Zhabdrung Rinpoche (the founder of Bhutan). This dzong is an important cultural landmark because it shows how Bhutanese people have been able to adapt to their religion while still maintaining their traditions over time.
