The route of the routes for all the tourists of the country, the Benidorm of Bhutan but in slope ... that yes, it can be done in horse or donkey. Thanks to that the path is a real disgust.
The accumulated data of ascent or descent are not as great as those that appear ... the mobile did not give good data, I am sorry.
There is a cafeteria halfway up, in our schedule was included a tea with cookies on the way up and the food on the way down.
The monastery is closed from one to two
More in the newspaper ...

    Gracias por tu comentario Meconet. Es cierto que el nivel es significativo, además de estar a casi 3200 m en el Monasterio, pero es la ruta típica que todo turista hace en Bhutan. Te encuentras gente acostumbrada al monte, pero también personas que lo suyo no es andar y esas son las que peor lo pasan, aunque el poder reponer a media altura ayuda

    Since this is a rapid climb with intermediate downslopes as well in slightly loose soil, it is best to carry a walking stick to go easy on the knees. The steeper portions have stone steps, but with plenty of loose pebbles, it can be a bit slippery in wet weather. It was drizzling slightly the day I went and the view was excellent once we were above the cloud level. It is a Must-Do experience if you are visiting Paro in particular and Bhutan in general.

    Me alegro que disfrutaras la ruta. El mar de nubes desde arriba debe verse espectacular. Muchas gracias por tu valoración.
