The capital of the kingdom of Bhutan is now home to almost 200,000 people. The capital is a growing commercial center with a modern pace of development that appears contrary to the otherwise beautiful, natural, quiet Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.
Paro is a perfect entry point to this land— the land of fairytales, willow trees, and the land of many roads. The contrasting bright green of the rice terraces in summer, and the brilliant white of the Dzong and the temples give the valley a fresh and pleasant atmosphere.
The small size of the place is surprising considering the role that Punakha played in the history of the kingdom. It was the country’s winter capital for 300 years and the fertile Punakha valley allows two rice crops a year. Oranges and bananas are also grown in abundance.
Phobjikha valley is one of the most beautiful spots in the country, the glacier of the pre-geographic era had played a vital role in shaping and beautifying the whole valley. Thus, Phobjikha is a hotspot for all tourists coming to Bhutan and a winter home for popular endangered Black Necked Cranes(Grus nigricollis).
Bumthang is the most historical valley with visible signs of the visit of the great Buddhist saint from India in the 8thcentury. The tales of Guru Padmasambhava and his reincarnates known as Lingpas, lingers in every nook and corner of the four beautiful valleys of Bumthang.
