The Highlight Of Bhutan  | Day 3. Paro

The Highlight Of Bhutan
  • Drive to Paro and en-route visit Tamchog Lhakhang: Tamchog Lhakhang is located some 15 km on the way from Paro to Thimphu. Perched on a deserted hill directly above the bridge, with fine views of the Paro River and the surrounding mountains, it is one of the many tourist attractions in Paro.
  • Ringpung Dzong“The Fortress on a Heap of Jewels” was built by Zhabdrung Ngwang Namgyel in 1646. Considered to be one of the finest examples of architecture, the Dzong also known as Paro Dzong houses administrative offices of the valley.
  • This conch-shaped fortress in Paro is located right above the Rinpung Dzong. Taa Dzong means the fortress of watchtower and it was
    converted into the National Museum of Bhutan under the command of the 3rd King of Bhutan, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck in the 17th Century.
  • Kyichu Lhakhang is said to have been built by King Songtsen Gampo of Tibet. It is believed that it holds down the left foot of an ogress so large that it covers Bhutan and most of eastern Tibet. It is one of the 108 temples built by the Tibetan King in one day throughout the region of the Himalayas according to legend. The temple also housed a museum dedicated to the late Dilgo Khyentse Rimpoche and hosts a range of artifacts belonging to the Rimpoche.

The Highlight Of Bhutan  | Day 4. Paro

  • Day Hike to Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest): Taktsang meaning “Tiger’s Nest”, is built around a cave in which Guru Rinpoche (also known as Guru Padmasambhava) meditated. The monastery clings seemingly impossibly to a cliff at 914 cm above the valley floor. Hike up to the monastery is exhausting, thrilling, and mystical. Legend has it that Guru Rimpoche is said to have flown to the site of the monastery in the back of a tigress and meditated in the cave.
