Experiences

COMO Uma Paro is an intimate, rural hotel in Bhutan, a landlocked Himalayan Kingdom where religion and nature have come together in a compelling Buddhist culture. This has given rise to names for Bhutan such as ‘hidden treasure’ or ‘the last Shangri-La’. A stay at COMO Uma Paro is about discovering the essence of Bhutan—its culture, religion and landscape. Designed to give unparalleled access to the country while simplifying logistics, we offer guides and guided adventures to allow guests to explore Bhutan by foot, bike, helicopter or 4WD.

For tailor-made experiences or more information, approach our Guides at the Activities Desk or email guest services at uma.paro@comohotels.com.
