Paro

Discover iconic Paro

The historical town of Paro lies at the centre of a valley rich in sacred sites and ancient buildings, and forms part of the core of exceptional destinations in Bhutan.

Home to the only international airport in the country, this pretty destination is covered with terraced paddy fields and quaint farmhouses scattered throughout the valley in the lower areas. In the upper reaches, coniferous forests look down onto the beautiful Paro Chhu River, which snakes its way below.

Among the many temples in the area Paro is most famous for the iconic Takhtsang Lakhang (also known as the Tiger’s Nest), situated at the northern end of the valley. It is also home to the National Museum, which displays hundreds of ancient Bhutanese artefacts and artwork.
