Tachogang Lhakhang Bridge, Paro

4.3
Take an exhilarating walk across Tachogang Lhakhang Bridge, the only way to reach the Tachog Lhakhang Dzong. Around 600 years old, the bridge remains sturdy, but not for the fainthearted or those afraid of heights. You'll be able to see straight through the chain-linked floor to the ground below, so keep your belongings close in case they slip through the cracks.

  • Great views around the place. It is set in the prestine environment between the mountains overlooking valleys and a river flowing by. It is an awesome place to visit while going from Thimpu to Paro.
  • The iron bridge- the original iron bridge is of limits as it's not stable- the new replacement will get you across to the other side of Paro river. You can hike up the hill for great views of the Paro river valley. A short stop between Timphu and Paro- you won't need more than a half hour here.
  • Old bridge. It shakes, which adds to the excitement. :)
  • Old iron bridge over pachhu to reach Tachog lhakhang
