Paro is exceptionally scenic and serene! Besides being a place to be for all whowant to be inducted into monkhood, it is a place of legends as well. It isnt themarket place, or the few concrete buildings spread out along the main street thatmake Paro; it is better known for places like the Taksang Monastery, which isnestled right at the edge of a cliff, 1200 meters high; Kichu Lang, about whichlegend says that it was built overnight along with 107 others and Drukgyel Dzong,that loudly speaks of the medieval Tibet-Bhutan wars.
Punakha until the year 1955 was the capital of Bhutan. The things that mostattract tourists and visitors to this town are its serene atmosphere and aninteresting history. When it comes to the history of Bhutan, theres nothing betterthan visiting the majestic Punakha Dzong, which is cradled on an island created bythe confluence of River Mo Chuu and River Pho Chuu. Besides being home toancient relics, it also serves as a winter residence for the monastic body.
rom a small town in the 60s to a full-fledged city today, Thimpu has come a longway to grab the title of the capital city of Bhutan, formerly upheld by the ancienttown of Punakha. And it still doesnt have traffic lights! Watch out for the dancingtraffic policemen that leave no stone unturned to light the way for local traffic.Spread out along the Wang Chuu River, Thimpu enjoys great weather with ampleprecipitation. Modernisation brought to the city, new ideas and ways of thinkingbut it has somehow remained impregnable to everything it doesn’t find intriguing.
