You will then hike down the trail to visit the Rinpung Dzong meaning "fortress of the heap of jewels". It has a long and fascinating history. Along the wooden galleries lining the courtyard of the Rinpung Dzong are fine wall paintings illustrating Buddhist lore.

Once you've had lunch, you will visit Kichu Lhakhang, the oldest and most sacred temple in the country. From there you will be taken to the ruin Drugyal Dzong (Bhutan Victory Fort), which was built in 1646 to commemorate Bhutan's victory over Tibetan invaders during the 1600s.
