Sam's Exotic Travels to Paro - Bhutan's Gateway to the Outside World
Paro, with Bhutan's only airport, is the entry point for travel into Bhutan. Historically the center of two of the most important trade routes to Tibet, the new road to Phuntsholing on the Indian border runs through the valley, amid a patch work of rice, paddies, wheat fields, apple orchards and scattered settlements of traditional Bhutanese houses. With a small downtown, more reminiscent of a US Western frontier town, the valley community appears a lot smaller than its metro population of 30,000 would indicate. Due to its strategic location, Paro is home to some of Bhutan's oldest temples and monasteries.
