Discover local history through the handicrafts, costumes and ancient weapons in the National Museum and around Paro.

See panoramic views of the Himalayas from Dochula Pass on the way to Punakha, and take a short hike through scenic forests to Chimi La Khang, commonly known as the Fertility Temple.
