About Paro

Paro charming small town lies on the banks of the Paro chhu and a short distance northwest of dzong. The Paro is a historic town with a many sacred site and historical buildings through the area. The paro valley is without doubt one of the loveliest in Bhutan. Willow trees and apple orchards line many of the roads, white washed farmhouse and temples complements the green terraced fields and forested hills rise on either side to create a beautiful, organic and peaceful whole. The road from Chhuzom and the airport enters the town from the south, and then makes a left turn at a T- junction into the main street near the archery practice field. The new street, only built in 1985, is lined with colorfully painted wooden shop fronts and restaurants. Paro is one of the nicest Bhutanese towns to explore and is worth an hour or two’s stroll at the end of a day of sightseeing.
