Unveil the Mysteries of Paro!
Paro is a historic town with many sacred sites and historical buildings scattered through the area. Moreover, the Paro Valley is wide, richly green and is recognised as one of the most beautiful in all of Bhutan.
Time spent in Paro is about nature, peace and tranquillity. Proximate to Paro is the famous Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest). Precariously perched on the edge of a 1,200-metre cliff, this monastery creates an impressive sight, and is the unofficial symbol of Bhutan.
It is roughly a 3-hour, completely up-hill hike from the parking lot to the monastery, making that sense of achievement even sweeter and the view even more rewarding.
Paro isn’t just about historical and cultural landmarks; it also provides an array of activities for nature and adventure enthusiasts. The serene valleys are perfect for leisurely walks or challenging treks, offering picturesque views that can soothe even the most weary souls.
The clear river is ideal for a refreshing dip or even a thrilling session of white-water rafting. Paro’s local markets offer a colorful array of traditional Bhutanese handicrafts, textiles, and other unique souvenirs.
The town’s vibrant festivals, especially the Paro Tshechu, add to its charm, presenting an excellent opportunity to immerse oneself in the local culture.
