Discover Bhutan’s culture like never before with COMO Hotels and Resorts six-night Historical Odysseys itinerary which deeply immerses guests into the country’s Buddhist culture. The exploration includes four days of guided walks around the Paro Valley, two days in the little-visited Punakha valley, where some of Bhutan’s most iconic temples are found, and a traditional butter lamp ceremony, a spiritual blessing which represents the eradication of darkness and ignorance with wisdom and light.

Guests will be given the chance to engage with young monks at Chorten Ningpo, a 17th -century educational institution; walk across farmhouses to reach Chimmi Lhakhang, an ancient fertility temple; and enjoy spectacular views of the Himalayas from the Dochu La mountain pass.

The first night is spent at COMO Uma Paro, nestled above the emerald Paro Valley, overlooking rice paddies and ancient monasteries, where rooms combine traditional Bhutanese craftsmanship with modern amenities. A signature treatment is included at the hotel’s COMO Shambhala Retreat, home to two bathhouses and a large indoor pool facing the mountains across the valley. Transferring to COMO Uma Punakha for the following three nights, the property offers intimate lodge-style accommodation with views of the Mo Chu River, local, seasonally led dining experiences at Bukhari restaurant and unrivalled access the best of the Himalayan Kingdom, followed by three additional nights at Paro.
