A Glimpse of Bhutan Nepal Tour
Paro, as it has the country’s only airstrip and because of its proximity to the airport, hotels and tourist facilities are found close to it. The valley of Paro contains a wealth of attractions. Here is located the Rinpung Dzong, an elegant and perfectly symmetrical structure. Built by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal in 1646, the Dzong houses the monastic body of Paro, the office of the Dzongda (district administration head) and Thrimpon (judge) of Paro district. Behind Rinpung Dzong is the castle shaped Ta Dzong, which houses the National Museum. Thimphu: is a bustling town set on the banks of its own rivers and set in the hills of its own valley. It is home to the revered Bhutanese Royal Family and to several foreign mission and development projects. The National Library housing some of the oldest records of Bhutanese history and religion is located nearby. Visitors can wander along the main street and into shops, all of which are decorated in the traditional style. Five miles from Thimphu stands Simtokha Dzong. Built in 1627, it is the oldest Dzong and houses the School for Buddhist studies, language and dance.
