A charming historic town with many sacred sites cradled in a verdant valley, Paro offers a scenic base to explore the important Buddhist attractions and pristine nature around it.
Taktsang Palphug Monastery and Tashichho Dzong (Thimpu Dzong) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Dochula Pass and Paro River. Explore Paro's surroundings by going to Thimphu (Motithang Takin Preserve, Kuenselphodrang, & more). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Rinpung Dzong, trek along Paro Taktsang, pause for some photo ops at Dasho Nishioka Chorten, and snap pictures at Tachogang Lhakhang Bridge.

To find reviews, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Paro sightseeing planning tool .
