  • This river inspires happiness that flows abundantly, without tasks and with a rare purity, as we see in the mountains It does not seem aggressive but take with it the wonders of The Bouthan

  • It is a beautiful river that for a few kilometers runs parallel to the road that goes from the airport to the city of Paro (Butan). It has a very nice bridge to stop to see the chain bridge, the guardhouses and the mountain. Good pictures. Be careful because in Butan you can not fish in the rivers as they belong to the King. It's a shame because I'm sure there's good fish in those crystal clear waters.
