Chele La Pass, Paro

4.5
#2 of 15 in Things to do in Paro
Marvel at snow-clad rugged mountain peaks surrounding you at Chele La Pass, one of the highest observation decks in Bhutan and the highest one you can reach by a motor vehicle. Standing at 3,988 m (13,084 ft), the highest motorway in the country offers spectacular views of mountains and valleys with yaks grazing in the distance. Observe a thick forest of poles with fluttering prayer flags next to the road, which locals put up to scare demons. The two-hour ride from Paro runs through thick forests, passing scenic waterfalls, rivers, and rare flowers. Bring some warm clothes.

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.
