Nice place. Very neat and clean. Not much for sightseeing. But natural beauty is awesome.

Paro is the perfect example of 'natural beauty meets tradition'. Mesmerizing beauty of nature along with rich cultural heritage. The turbulent Paro River speeding through the middle of the city, the willow trees on either side of the road all add to the charm of this city. Add to it, various monasteries and lakhangs and the widely respected Taktsang Monastery.
