The city of Thimphu is nestled in the higher ranges of the Himalayas offering astonishing sights of their emerald forests and beautiful view of the Raidak or Chuu River flowing through it. The captivating city has retained its traditional Buddhist sights and flavour gracing with modernity in Bhutanese style.

Thimphu combines a natural small-town feel with a new commercial exuberance that constantly challenges the country's natural conservatism and the Shangri La image.
