Area: 1,293 sq. km

Distance from Paro: 0 km

Population: 11,448

Paro plain extends from the assemblage of the Paro Chhu and the Wang Chhu rivers at Chuzom up to Mt. Jomolhari at the Tibetan flank to the North. This charming district is one of the amplest valleys in the kingdom and is covered in abundant rice fields and has a magnificent, sparkling stream meandering down the plain.

Underlining the innate charm are the many simple, traditional-style houses that pepper the valley and circling hillsides. Paro municipality has been growing swiftly in recent times and there are plethora of cafeterias, bakeries and diners to choose from. One of the offbeat features of Paro city is that it is situated in a low valley bottom and follows a grid-like shape. The central square is embellished with a massive prayer wheel and a miniature auditorium at which events such as shows are usually organized.
