Paro valley extends from the confluence of the Paro Chhu and the Wang Chhu rivers at Chuzom up to Mt. Jomolhari at the Tibetan border to the North. This region is one of the widest valleys in the kingdom and is covered in fertile rice fields and has a beautiful, crystalline river meandering down the valley. And it has many historic and cultural sights.

The country's first and only International Airport is located in Paro and it's the perfect place for you to land. After you land, breathe fresh air, and out of the airport; you will notice that Bhutan is unlike other places. Depending on the season you travel you see the yellow or green colors of the field.

There are over 155 temples and monasteries in the area, some dating as far back as the 7th century. Its close proximity to the historical and religious sites in the region has resulted in the development of an array of luxurious, high-end tourist resorts making Paro one of the main destinations for visitors.
