    Beautiful property with great views

    The hotel was a very pretty property - a wooden palace. It was the old Paro governor's house restored. We were given a deluxe room in the central courtyard - everything in the room was a work of art. The painted wall behind the bed, the painted wardrobe, the carved sofas, the columns covered with Bhutanese motifs gave us a sense of how Bhutanese royalty must have lived in the past. The huge bathroom was almost the size of a living room.

    There is a lovely sit-out on the huge front lawns with a fantastic view of the Paro Valley. There are pear and peach trees in the hotel gardens- we ate some pears from these trees. The restaurant and the bar are also very pretty- the bar has tall windows through which you can drink in the beautiful scenery outside.

    If you are put up in Gangtey Palace and are a vegetarian, then you would be better off having your meals in one of the town restaurants. The canned peas used in the food at Gangtey Palace are never cooked properly. So be careful while ordering for any food here.

    Hike to Tiger's Nest

    We started early in the morning- our taxi driver picked us up at 7:30 AM and we were at the starting point for the hike by 8 AM. Luckily for us, there was no rain and the muddy path was mostly firm. We made slow progress, stopping after every few steps to catch up on our breath. There were a couple of middle aged/ older ladies who were proceeding …

    Our hotel was situated right across Paro Dzong on the opposite hill, at around the same height. Both the Dzong and the National Museum above it had been pointed out to us by the hotel staff when we entered the hotel. We set off on foot in the morning towards the Dzong- much to the surprise of the hotel staff, and against their advice, who felt we …

    We reached the permit office in Phuntsholing at 8:45 AM (it officially opens at 9). We got our permits by around 10:30AM. The workflow at the permit office was quite chaotic though (see practical tips section below). As soon as we got our permit, we got our local SIM card from the Tashi cell office and then we quickly headed for a breakfast at the …

    ... The family were just lovely, 2 teenage sons & 1 teenage daughter, and a younger daughter of 10 with the rosiest red cheeks, and an 80 year old grandpa who couldn't hear much but sat smiling and softly chanting. The two boys could speak English, so between that, Tenzin our driver translating and some gestures we managed to get by very well. With the bukara lit and the heat starting to pump we sat crosslegged on the floor and shared milk tea.

I was helping Mr. K to photograph a pair of pretty Broad Bills building their nest… telling him when they flew so he could capture them in flight when behind one of the birds which was perched on a branch, I saw a beautiful large orange breasted bird fly in and perch behind Mr. K's 'subject'… embarrassingly, I didn't know what it was but pestered Mr. K to look as thought it might be special… 'Holy ****!' he exclaimed having grabbed my ...
