    Paro has the privilege of hosting Bhutan's lone airport. The Paro Chhu valley is an excellent trout stream and runs through the valley.

    Paro hosts Bhutan's lone airport and the valley comprises a range of bucolic imagery including traditional Bhutanese homes, dzongs or fortified monasteries and green rice fields as far as the eyes can see. Bhutan at her best!

    The Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked nation in South Asia, located at the eastern end of the Himalaya Mountains and is bordered to the south, east and west by the Republic of India and to the north by Tibet. Bhutan is separated from Nepal by the Indian state of Sikkim.

    Paro Chhu is a river of western Bhutan. It is a tributary of the Wong Chhu, which is known as the Raidak in its lower reaches.

    The Paro Chhu flows through the Paro Valley, which is the site of one of Bhutan's main towns, Paro, and many important monasteries.

    The lower Paro Chhu river is a good stretch of about 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) for beginner/intermediate kayakers. This stretch has many small, boulder rapids and wave trains. There is one class IV--V boulder choke, about 3 km from the put in, which can be run on the left and scouted from the right. It is suitable for kayaks only as the river is too small for a raft to be enjoyable. After this, the river enters a short, scenic canyon with more class II--III rapids. The stretch ends at Chhuzom. More experienced kayakers can continue down the Wong Chhu.

    This video shows the great green expanse of the valley with the river flowing through it. Also Bhutan's fame as one of the cleanliest countries seems justified as we can see the roads and the residential villages which seem completely devoid of garbage or litter.
