Where to stay in Thimphu

As the capital, Thimphu features the largest range of accommodations in the kingdom. Only opening up to international tourism in the 1970's, the list remains relatively small, but the city remains in a period of development, so more options are arriving each year. Take a look along Norzim Lam, the main thoroughfare, for a number of small hotels, both budget and standard. Located close to the main attractions in the city, and overlooking the most attractive public plazas and parks, a small number of charming hotels offer mid-range and luxury rooms, with additional facilities such as pools.

  • Worth to spend a night there and wake up early in the morning to have an amazing sunrise view above the cloud
  • You won't regret for having tried to hike for 3 hours uphill. Splendid views and if you walk little further beyond monastery ong Druk Path Trails, you will feel like continuing your hike for more hours. Pictures included from Thuje Drak monastery and Druk Path Trail.
  • Its takes less than 3 hours hike to Phajoding Monastry. Worth it.
  • nice place
  • Gud hike.....
