4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
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. Make Chele La Pass a part of your Paro vacation plans using our Paro family vacation planner.
