The Jungshi Handmade Paper Factory is your next stop. Come and see how Bhutan protects its environment through long-term sustainability.

This factory manufactures a special watermark paper as well as products such as lampshades, envelopes and other objects made of traditional Bhutanese paper. They make great gifts to take home with you and are genuinely unique. It is not just the texture of these handmade paper products that will intrigue you, but also their unique earth tones and natural hews.

You will also visit the Handicrafts Emporium where you can purchase exquisite hand-woven fabric in a million colors and decorations for your living room. Are you a stamp collector by any chance? We won't call you a philatelist because that sounds way too esoteric. Surprising as it may sound, Bhutan has a rather rich tradition of postage stamps which dates back several hundred years. You can purchase rare postage stamps in any one of several shops in this area around the two museums. Bhutan also happens to be a picture postcard collector's paradise. If you need to change money, the Bhutan National Bank is next door.
Simtokha Dzong is the oldest and the most secure fortress in Bhutan. It offers you an amazing backdrop to take pictures. Enjoy a full-course dinner and some little "me" time in the evening. Feel free to go out on your own since Bhutan is a very safe country for everyone including tourists.
Day 3 : Thimphu To Punakha
Your western Bhutan tour continues as you leave for Punakha after breakfast. You will go through the Dochula Pass which is an experience in itself.

Notice their architectural beauty and the manner in which they have weathered the four seasons over the years. If the weather decides to cooperate, you can admire the glory of the snow-capped Himalayan Ranges from this vantage point.
