Where to stay in Thimphu

About Thimphu

Home of the Royal Family and famous for its Buddhist sites, Thimphu is a culturally rich city in western Bhutan. The country's capital sits in a deep valley formed by the Raidak River, where crimson-robed monks cross paths with modern young businessmen.

Things to do

Tashichho Dzong is a fortified monastery and government palace with an impressive gold-leaf roof and views to boot. The building is surrounded by well-kept lawns and pruned gardens waiting to be explored.

At the end of Norzin Lam road sits Thimphu’s Textile Museum, which offers insight into the local textile industry. You can enjoy displays of traditional Burmese dress and history talks on moments dating back to the 1600s. Afterwards, head to Thimphu Centenary Farmers Weekend Market for a spot of shopping and a bite to eat.

Culture vultures will delight at the National Memorial Chorten. This whitewashed structure is a revered Buddhist shrine with an impressive gold stupa built in 1975. Pay this iconic monument a visit in the evening to watch the locals in prayer.

If you have a little extra time, take the two-hour drive west to the world-famous Cliffside Monastery of Paro Taktsang. Frequently visited by international royal families, this sacred Buddhist site boasts beautiful views over surrounding green valleys. It’s a five-kilometre hike to the top on foot or you can enjoy a horseback ride, stopping at the tea shop en route.

Getting around

Paro International Airport sits under one hour’s drive west of the capital, and there are inter-district buses that depart from the city station. There’s also an efficient public bus and taxi service that connects to downtown Thimphu.
