Paro

Transcending time, nestled here is the renowned Tiger’s Nest

Paro has been inhabited since at least the 10th century, though it grew most after the foundation of the Dungtse Lhakhang and Rinpung Dzong in the 1500s and 1600s. The traditional architecture is highly decorative, with modern buildings adhering to the traditional style. By exploring these historic streets on foot, you can be immersed into aromatic cafes for exotic teas or be inspired by local craft shops.

The Rinpung Dzong means "heaps of jewels," though sadly most of its treasures were destroyed by a fire in 1907. One sacred thangka painting was saved, and the dzong displays it alongside its considerable collection of antique and modern sacred masks and costumes.
 
A short drive outside Paro is the Paro Taktsang, better known as the Tiger’s Nest, which is surely the most iconic sight in Bhutan. Clinging to a rock face on the site where Guru Rinpoche meditated for three years straight, it’s a striking collection of terraced monastery buildings and caves. The Tsechu festival takes place here in March or April and is a whirlwind of colour and dance, celebrating the unique history of this extraordinary country.
