Chele La Pass is the tourist attraction place in Himalayan mountain range. The place is about 3900 meters above sea level. We enjoyed chill and cold climate with windy weather. One side paro Valley and another side Ha valley. Two hours journey from Paro city.

Beautiful place. I must post a picture to describe. There is one bio toilet which you may avoid if it's not urgent.
