Punakha Dzong is arguably the most beautiful dzong in the country, especially in spring when the lilac-coloured jacaranda trees bring a lush sensuality to the dzong's characteristically towering whitewashed walls. This dzong was the second to be built in Bhutan and it served as the capital and seat of government until the mid-1950s. All of Bhutan's kings have been crowned here.
Clinging to a sheer cliff face, 900 hundred metres above the Paro Valley, Taktsang Lhakhang (Tiger's Nest Monastery) is Bhutan’s Machu Picchu, its Taj Mahal – the cliff-face that launched a thousand postcards. It features in every brochure, book and website about the country. But, thanks to Bhutan’s restrictions on visitor numbers, it doesn't feel overrun.
Archery is Bhutan’s national sport and is practised everywhere in the country. From local tournaments between friends to national competitions, the activity is taken rather seriously.
