Paro is the starting point for many of Bhutan's most scenic treks. Experience one of the last pristine mountain cultures on earth from COMO's authentic retreats. Discover local monasteries and markets on the Dochhu trail before ascending up to the jaw-dropping Tiger's Nest monastery. The remote and tranquil Punakha Valley is best explored on foot or by mountain bike. Hike off the beaten track and stumble upon traditional villages, go white-water rafting down the Mo and Pho rivers passing by the imposing Punakha Dzong.
Bhutan can be visited year-round, although the most pleasant weather occurs from March to May and from October to November. The winter months between December and February are particularly magical, characterised by refreshingly crisp days and blue skies with occasional snowfall, whilst the temperature drops further at night. The lush summer months are an ideal time to view the wildflowers.
