A trip to Bhutan normally begins and ends at Paro and there can be few more charming valleys in the kingdom. As you disembark your Druk Air 'Whisper Jet' and take your first breath of Bhutanese air, you will be struck by the silence and peace of Paro's valley. Willow trees line the main road from the airport, and the Paro River provides a richly watered landscape ideal for rice cultivation. A destination all of its own, Paro is home to the national museum and watchtower to one of the oldest and most celebrated dzongs in all Bhutan.

The town of Paro is small with most of inhabitants living in the beautiful valley that surrounds the town. The valley floor is at its widest in the area nearest to the airport, the town and Paro Dzong. Apart from commanding a slightly elevated strategic point overlooking the longest stretch of the Paro Valley, Paro Dzong is symbolic as the religious and secular center of all affairs of the valley. It is also an architectural wonder, setting the tone for official dzongs throughout the kingdom and inviting the visitor to wonder at the cultural strength of the kingdom's heritage. The dzong itself was conceived in the 15th century and finally consecrated in 1646. Above the dzong is the old watchtower which is now home to Bhutan`s national museum. The museum's collection includes ancient Bhutanese arts and artifacts, weapons and stamps, birds and animals, and an incredible collection of silver tea ware. This is typical of the eclectic beauty of Bhutan - its prized objects bear little relation to each other but as a whole stand together as a history of one of the world's most pristine people.

It is said that Guru Rinpoche (Precious Master), the father of the Bhutanese strain of Mahayana Buddhism, arrived in Paro Valley more than a millennium ago on the back of a legendary tigress. He meditated for three months in a cave where a monastery was later built and called Taktshang Lhakang or Tiger's Nest. Visitors to Paro can take a closer look at the monastery by ascending either on foot or by pony for about three hours to Tiger's Nest. Hikkers can enjoy a well-earned rest at the Taktshang Teahouse situated at a wonderful vantage point of the monastery. On special days in Paro you can get a clear view of Mt. Jhomolhari (7314m-23,996 ft.)
