    Day 2: Paro

    Stop At: National Folk Heritage Museum, Pedzoe Lam, Thimphu 11001 Bhutan
    After breakfast, our first stop will be at the National Folk Heritage Museum,
    dedicated to preserving Bhutanese folk arts. This renovated 19th-century building is
    laid out like a traditional, rural household with three stories of traditional arts Es,
    cultural relics, and artifacts. Demonstrations are performed throughout the day to
    show how the Bhutanese people have lived over the centuries.
    At the Jungshi Handmade Paper Factory, you will see the ancient practice of natural
    papermaking. Using the bark of two local tree species (Daphne and Dhekap),
    craftsmen demonstrate how to make the traditional paper Deh-sho. You can even
    try making your own paper for a special souvenir. Handmade papers were used by
    monks for writing prayers and woodblock printing.

    Weaving is considered the national art of Bhutan, so at The National Textile
    Museum, you will learn all about the brightly colored and beautifully designed
    fabrics that are worn by the Bhutanese people. Thanks in part to our Queen Jetsun
    Pema, the fabrics of Bhutan are widely considered high fashion around the world.
    Due to the importance of this living art form, the Royal Government of Bhutan
    works to preserve and promote these traditional weaving methods.
    We then take a drive to Motithang Takin Preserve, home to one of the strangest
    looking creatures on earth. The takin is a gentle moose-like animal that is described
    as looking like is was stung by a bee. Originally a small zoo, the king decreed that it
    was not in alignment with Buddhist practices to pen up animals, and they were
    released into the wild. The takin; however, refused to leave and began wandering
    the city streets in search of food. The preserve was established, and Bhutan’s
    national animal is now taken care of by royal decree.
    We end the day with a visit to Simtokha Dzong. Built in 1629, it was the first fortress
    of its kind in Bhutan and features beautifully painted Buddhist murals and carvings
    inside. Simtokha means “demon stone” and legend has it that the fortress was used
    to contain a demon inside a rock which was terrorizing the region. Today, it is home
    to one of the premier monk-taught Dzongkha learning centers, the national language
    of Bhutan.
