The trip to BBS Tower offers you the best photography opportunities for the day as this point commands panoramic vistas of the Thimphu city.
We cannot let you go without a visit to Kuensel Phodrang Nature Park, which has one of the largest statues of Shakyamuni in the world -Buddha Dordenma.
The Folk Heritage Museum, which is housed in a 3-storey building, exhibits a vast collection of old tools and household items used by the locals.

Paro Calling (Thimpu to Paro | Sightseeing)
"Post an appetizing meal in the morning, check-out from the hotel and head back to Paro.
The realm of a peaceful river, towering hills and monasteries, the Paro Valley welcomes you again with all its heart. This day involves plenty of sightseeing as we take you to some of the most popular points of interest here.
During the day, you will spend moments of peace at the 7th-century Kyichu Lhakhang. It is said to be one of the 108 Buddhist temples, built by the Tibetan king, Songtsen Gampo, to defeat a demoness, which created obstacles in the spreading of Buddhism in the region.
The visit to Ta Dzong – home to the National Museum of Bhutan – will bring you one step closer to the culture and people of the kingdom. Fascinatingly, some of the artifacts housed in the museum date back to 4000 BC!
Also, explore the Drukgyel Dzong! What is an archaeological site today used to be a significant defense base until a few decades ago! Constructed in 1649, the building was abandoned in 1951 after a fire left it in ruins.
When you are done exploring these amazing places, move to the hotel, and sleep after a hearty dinner.
Local Sightseeing in Paro
After a hearty breakfast at the hotel, get into your private transport and reach to the entry point of ""Paro Taktsang"" well known as Tiger’s nest temple. The Temple or Taksang Monastery is the most famous of Bhutanese monasteries. It is said that Guru Rinpoche arrived here on the back of a tigress and meditated at the monastery. Perched precariously on the edge of a 1200m cliff, this monastery is an impressive sight and the unofficial symbol of Bhutan. The up-hill hike would take around 2 hours. You could also choose to ride a horse from the parking lot to the monastery. If the full hike sounds a bit tough, you can hike for 1 hour to the cafeteria - a wooden tea-house restaurant which offers a good view of the monastery.
In the evening, you would be dropped off at the hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.
