The remnants of once flourishing Drukgeyl Dzong echo many stories. The Dzong sits on a path that connects Paro Valley to the Tibet through the Tremo La pass. In the past, it was a significant trade route and the Dzong was a major administrative centre. In 1951, the Dzong was destroyed by a fire and the charred walls and beams are still visible.
The complex consists of a Chorten, chapel and ruins of big towers. An adventurous climb leads you to the ruins where you can admire the once proud and regal building.
Highlight: There is something mystical about taking a walk in the historical ruins of the Dzong. On the way you can get a view of the majestic Mount Jhomolhari's snow laden peak, on a clear day.
Location: The Dzong is located in Paro valley and is about 25 minutes drive away from Paro International Airport.
