Paro River, Bhutan

4.5
#3 of 6 in Nature in Bhutan
Cutting through alpine meadows and deep gorges, Paro River draws tourists with its clean and clear glacial waters creating perfect opportunities for kayaking and rafting. Beginners will find a trip through the scenic canyon downstream of Paro town especially pleasing, while the more experienced kayakers can continue past the estuary and down the Wong Chhu River.

Where to stay in Paro

A popular tourist and pilgrimage spot, Paro offers a range of luxurious accommodations in the form of resort-style hotels and boutique spas. You'll find these scattered around the valley, but not in the main downtown area. If you're looking for less-exclusive hotels, check the hillside to the west of town, which offers great views of the valley. A number of mid-range hotels also offer panoramic views. For budget-oriented travelers, there are few guesthouses in town.
