How to reach
For people visiting Paro, it is either the first destination or the last destination because it lies sideways from the other destinations.The dzong is built on a steep hillside, and the front courtyard of the administrative section is 6m higher than the courtyard of the monastic portion. A road climbs the hill to the dzong's northern entrance, which leads into the dochey (courtyard) on the 3rd store.
