Paro, Bhutan

Paro is one of Bhutan’s most historic valleys of Bhutan. It is home to the country’s only international airport.
 
Traditional architecture is showcased along Paro’s main street, featuring richly decorated buildings that house small shops, institutions and restaurants. Important cultural sites can also be found in the district of Paro, including Taktsang, or Tiger’s Nest, the most famous monastery for the people of Bhutan; Kyichu Lhakhang, one of the country’s oldest temples, dating back to the 7th century; Rinpung Dzong, also known as Paro Dzong, a massive monastery and fortress where scenes from the movie Little Buddha was filmed; and many others. 
 
Pleasant mid-range hotels and lodges are tucked into the hills above Paro. Only 54 kilometers away from the Bhutan’s capital city of Thimphu, it is the perfect starting point for visitors to explore the wonders of the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon.
