Review of Rinchen Ling Lodge, Paro by koshkha

Advantages: Lovely friendly staff, nice setting
Disadvantages: Not a lot to do

The Rinchen Ling Lodge was the first of three hotels we used during our trip to Bhutan and was both the most basic and the most friendly of the three. We landed at Paro airport mid-afternoon and were taken to the hotel after stopping off to watch some arc ... Read review
