Samlha Tours & Travels


The Capital of Bhutan, Thimphu, is an interesting blend of modernity and tradition. Situated an hour and a half away from Paro International Airport, it is located at an altitude of about 8,000 ft on the west bank of river Wang Chu, also known locally as Thimphu Chu (Chu means River in the local language).

Thimphu, which has just over 100,000 residents, is regarded as the largest and most advanced city in the nation. Although Thimphu is regarded as a city, it nonetheless maintains the distinctive characteristics of a Bhutanese town. Old forts, monasteries, and woodlands coexist here with a variety of eateries and internet cafés. Additionally, Thimphu is the only national capital in the world without any traffic lights.
