Tigers Nest Monastery
A mesmerising sight to see, you will look up in amazement as this monastery hangs on a cliff. The view from atop is unmatched, and offers gorgeous sights of the world below. At a height of 900 metres, the Tigers Monastery can be reached by arranging a pony ride that takes you to the cafeteria area of the Monastery. From there, you would have to climb up steep steps to reach the top of the Monastery. Watch out for the waterfall that lies near the Snow Lion Cave and enjoy the breath-taking view of the Paro Valley from above!
One of the oldest dzong in Bhutan, Punakha dzong is also called ‘Pungthang Dewachen Phodrang’ meaning the Palace of Happiness. It’s a beautiful dzong that sits between the rivers Pho Chu and Mo Chu. Spot relics that date back to the kings that ruled the area. Come here to experience joy and happiness.
Zuri Dzong is the oldest Dzong that exist in Bhutan. If you love adventure then buckle up for a trek up the peak of Zuri Dzong to get a bird-eye view of Paro Valley that’s famous for the cave believed to be the place where Buddha mediated. Mesmerizing views and a sense of peace and calm is what to expect here.
A stunning valley that sits in the Himalayas is an exciting experience. Called ‘Shangri-La of Bhutan’ by many, it is a beautiful flat valley which barely has any trees. Visit the Gogona and Khotokha villages that pass through lush green meadows and large fields. You will pass through several forests of magnolia, bamboo, juniper and rhododendrons. Also explore the Gangtey Monastery which will leave you totally excited.
