Paro, located in Western Bhutan, is renowned for its fertile land and rich cultural heritage. It boasts numerous significant sites within the kingdom. Additionally, the district is home to one of the world’s most challenging airports due to its short runway distance.
Embark on a captivating journey that takes you to the heart of the Paro Tshechu festival. Witness devotees adorned in traditional attire as they gather at the Paro Dzong to express their devotion and seek blessings. Elaborately dressed monks and laypeople perform vibrant dances, symbolizing the triumph of good over evil.
