Day Hikes in Paro Valley
Taktshang Lhakhang (Tiger’s Nest)
Short of time and is in Paro Valley. Taktshang Lhakhang is a must visit and no trip to Bhutan is complete without visiting this place. It’s a short intensive steep walk and is about 2 hours 30 minutes. The path starts through pine forest and a steep climb. You may take a mule too but most enjoyable be to walk it up. Once you reach the top you will have an amazing feeling.
This temple is located between Paro and Haa valley. This is very short hike and after visiting the Lhakhangs, drives to Chelela pass.
This monastery is located on the mountain side below the Chelela pass. In this Gompa, the only nuns resides there about an hour walk up steep through the chirpine forest and fluttering prayer flags. You can view Paro valley on the right and Hall valley on the left.
