Paro is the perfect destination for anyone who prefers to spend time by themselves in the lap of nature, far from the madding crowd. The main street is adorned with colourful wooden shops, houses and restaurants. The Taktsang Palphug Monastery popularly known as Paro Taktsang is a Buddhist temple situated in the upper portion of the Paro Valley and is a beautiful monastery.
