Paro

Paro ©
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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Dzongdrakha Monastry and Kyichu Lhakhang. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Paro Taktsang, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ugyen Pema Woedling Zangthopelri, pause for some photo ops at Dasho Nishioka Chorten, and take in the views from Tachogang Lhakhang Bridge.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Paro online sightseeing planner.

New Delhi, India to Paro is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and car. You'll lose 0.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Paro due to the time zone difference. In May, Paro is much colder than New Delhi - with highs of °C and lows of °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Thimphu.

The kingdom's capital and most modern city, Thimphu offers a mix of ancient traditions and modern commercialism.
Explore hidden gems such as Simtokha Dzong and Choki Traditional Art School. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Royal Textile Academy of Bhutan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Druk Wangyel Monastery, ponder the world of politics at Tashichho Dzong (Thimpu Dzong), and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

To see maps, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Thimphu itinerary builder website.

Getting from Paro to Thimphu by car takes about 1.5 hours. In May, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
