Paro

A charming historic town with many sacred sites cradled in a verdant valley, Paro offers a scenic base to explore the important Buddhist attractions and pristine nature around it.
You've now added Amedewa Tours and Trek to your itinerary. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Paro Taktsang, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kyichu Lhakhang, cruise along Chele La Pass, and see the interesting displays at National Museum.

For traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Paro trip planner.

Mumbai, India to Paro is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus, taxi, and car; or do a combination of train, bus, and car. Traveling from Mumbai to Paro, you'll lose 0.5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Mumbai in November, expect Paro to be much colder, temps between 23°C and 5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Punakha.
