Uma Paro

Already dreading the coming winter doldrums, Christmas sweaters, and endless shopping lines? Get away (far, far away) and put the cheer back in the holidays with Uma Paro’s festive offering.

Guests can prepare for the New Year with this five-night, personally-guided itinerary. Spend the day mountain biking through the Paro Valley, exploring Thimpu (the capital of Bhutan), and delighting in the magic orange trees of one of the oldest temples in Bhutan, Kyichu Lhakhang.

After a full day of adventure, come home to a COMO Shambhala traditional Bhutanese Hot Stone Bath treatment and an evening of snuggling up by Uma Paro’s wood-burning stoves – or head out on the town to take part in these spirited holiday events!

Festive highlights include:

December 24: Long-life puja (ceremony) at one of the oldest temples in Bhutan and complimentary canapés in the Lobby Bar with traditional Bhutanese music.

December 25: Afternoon Archery Tournament and special degustation at Uma Paro’s Bukhari restaurant.
