Paro Dzong wall detail

Paro is the first town most people visiting Bhutan see as it is where the international airport is located. It is a small valley town with Paro Dzong and the Watchtower turned National Museum looking down on it. Dzongs are high-walled fortresses with central courtyards that serve as both monasteries and an administrative centre, in Bhutan. Paro is best known as the stepping off point for Tiger's Nest Monastery, Bhutan's number one attraction.
