  • The Interior is very dark, so be careful. When you climb the staircase in the Interior of the temple is like a ladder within the coarse and very steep because the safety you should be aware of.

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.
