Punakha was the capital of Bhutan from 1637 until 1907 and is still the winter seat of Je Khnep (the Chief Abbot). Blessed with a temperate climate and naturally drained by the Po Chhu (male) and Mo Chhu rivers, the Punakaha Valley produces abundant crop and fruit. The Dochula Pass (alt. 3,080m) on the Thimpu-Punakaha Road Pass – marked by 108 memorial Bhutanese chortens (Buddhist stupas) and prayer flags – offers the most spectacular 360-degree views of the eastern Himalayas on a clear day.

Visit the majestic Punakha Dzong, the winter residence of the monk body here.

Hike to Chimi Lakhang and Khamsum Yuli through terraced paddy fields, orchards, pine forests, and traditional Bhutanese villages.

Enjoy fabulous river rafting and kayaking opportunities in the Mo Chhu and Po Chhu rivers.Visit the orphanage at the 16th century Neyphug Monastery.
