Snow Capped Mountains and Waterfalls
Though the Royal Manas National Park in Zhemgang is famed for wildlife viewing, nature adventure and exotic birding experience, however en-route to the Park you will be driving through the Black Mountain Ranges and High Mountain passes from where you can see the Himalayas of Bhutan.
As you fly into the Paro International Airport, and if you are lucky to get a seat on the left side of the aisle then you can enjoy aerial views of the tallest mountain ranges of the world including the Mt. Everest, Kangchenjenga, Lhotse, Manasulu and as you get nearer to your destination the Mt. Jumolhari (7326m), Jichu Drakey (6662m) and Tsherimgang of Bhutan – the last Himalayan Kingdom.
Though the Royal Manas National Park in Zhemgang is famed for wildlife viewing, nature adventure and exotic birding experience, however en-route to the Park you will be driving through the Black Mountain Ranges and High Mountain passes from where you can see the Himalayas of Bhutan. On your drive from Thimphu to Punakha stopover at the scenic Dochula Pass (3,150 masl) for a panoramic view of Mt Gangkar Puensum (7570 m), Gangchen Singye (7205 m), Tari Gang (7,304 m), Masang Gang (7194 m), Table Mountain (7,094 m), Mt Kubum, Tiger Mountain and many more.
And as you drive away from Punakha towards Zhemgang you will be driving through, along and facing the secret and remote Black Mountain Ranges. As much as the mountains of Bhutan are high-rise, steep and dramatic so are the amazing waterfalls dotting the landscape. On the Bumthang - Monggar highway, the Namling waterfall is one of the most spectacular to watch as it falls more than 1,500 meters beating against the hard vertical cliff with the water vanishing into foamy clouds of smoke far below the road. On the way to Panbang from Tingtibi (Zhemgang), the Twin Waterfall offers a refreshing stop-over on the long drive and is famous for locals and tourists alike to take a quick shower and a swim. While on your drive to explore Bjoka village from Pangbang there are two noticeable waterfalls cascading silently in the deep heart of the Royal Manas National Park.
