Since 1960, the capital of Bhutan is Thimphu. Thimphu is situated at a height of over 7600 feet on a hillside in a fertile valley on the banks of the Thimphu Chhu River. Thimphu is perhaps the smallest capital in the world. The town of Thimphu is nothing like what a capital city is imagined to be. Thimphu Bhutan One interesting fact about this city is that it is the only world capital without any traffic lights. Thimphu is a gallery of traditional Bhutanese art, architecture, culture, and tradition and above all still so ethnic and pure. It is a fitting and lively place. The wooden houses stand side by side with concrete buildings, all painted and constructed in traditional Bhutanese styles. For most part of its history, Bhutan has tried consciously to save its culture from the blunt influences of the western world. It is not that modernity has not reached this region, but they are being introduced in a phased and balanced manner that is unheard of at any place in the world. All these make Thimphu and other parts of the country a unique destination.


Phuentsholing is the second largest town in Bhutan and is located on the Indian border, next to the town of Jaigaon.


Punakha is the winter seat of the Central Monk Body. Until 1955, Punakha served as the capital of Bhutan. The Punakha valley is drained by the Phochu and Mochu rivers. This valley produces rich crops of rice and fruits, including mangoes, bananas and oranges. Punakha has a temperate climate. The road from Thimphu to Punakha is crossed through a 10,218 feet high Dochu La Pass. This pass offers enchanting views Punakha Bhutan of alpine snows and red, pink, white, yellow and purple rhododendron flowers. The Punakha Dzong, Jampe Lhakhang and Kurje monastery are the main tourist attractions in Punakha. In 1637, Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyel built the Punakha Dzong (fortress) at the junction of the Phochu and Mochu rivers to serve as the religious and administrative centre of Bhutan. Punakha Dzong houses many sacred temples, including the Machhin Lhakhang, where the embalmed body of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyel lies in state in keeping with tradition. Today, various rituals, including the serving of meals, is carried out as it was during the Shabdrung's life. This dzong was damaged four times by fire in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and by earthquakes in 1897. The Punakha Dzong also suffered devastation by floods. The Dzong was completely restored under the direction of the present King. The sacred Jampe Lhakhang and Kurje monasteries are believed to have been built in the eighth century by Sindhu Raja whom Padmasambhava cured of his ailment. The body marks of Guru Padmasambhava are still imprinted on a solid rock.


Paro is the gateway to the country of Bhutan. Situated in the Paro Valley of Eastern Himalaya, the town is full of legends, heroism, and natural splendour. If there would be a place where nature and Paro Bhutan man conjured to create their clearest and cleanest image, it must be the Paro valley in Bhutan. The town is located at an altitude of 2,250 m above the sea level with river flowing gently on its side and making it the most beautiful valley in the country. Though, the capital of Bhutan is Thimphu, but for a longer time of the history Paro had the control of this part of the country. The town of Paro in western Bhutan attracts tourists due to its scenic locales, beautiful landscapes, wooded villages and historic buildings. The Paro valley is unique in beauty and in history. The only airport of Bhutan is located in Paro. To the north, Mount Chamolhari (Mountain of the Goddess), reigns in white glory and the waters from its "five sisters" peaks passes through deep gorges, finally meeting in the end to form the Paro Chu river that nourishes the rice fields and apple and peach orchards.
