Paro is one of the best valleys in Bhutan. In 2002, I went to Bhutan. In that time this was quite costly and less populated place. It took 4 hours to reach Paro from Footshelling. The valley is so pleasant and beautiful such like a painting.
I was studying class IX when we went Bhutan, but still I have some wonderful memories which are precious for me.
This museum is located upper region of Paro and here photography is prohibited. The museum is looked very beautiful from the distance. It is ideal for history lover. It was built by Government of India as the financial assistance. The museum provides the glimpses of cultural heritage of Bhutan. There is also a documentary film encapsulating various cultural dances etc.
RinpungDzong: This place is situated near to a river and the view is exquisite for everyone. All the District Administration works are done here though the tourists are not allowed here. The architecture of the place is nice and here there is a monastery which should be visited by every tourist.
Though it is not part of sight scene but integral part of our journey. The city is so beautiful and the weather is so pleasant. The cold light breeze and the beautiful scenery made one’s mind refreshing.
