Paro Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 71 photos

The Gateway to Bhutan

Paro is a very important city, and it has richer history compared to the new capital Thimphu.

You'll likely arrive by Druk-Air at Paro, the only airport in Bhutan.

You'd be overwhelmed by the Bhutanese tranquility right there at the airport.

A Distant View of Paro Aiport

Driving from Paro to Thimphu, you'll arrive at a pass that offers you a panoramic view of the airport.


It's the traditional, the official, the commercial building. Similar style for shop and for residence.
