Among the most gorgeous mountain passes in the world, it is all about lush greenery, the 108 chortens, Druk Wangyal Lhakhang temple and the warm Bhutanese culture. The temple’s architecture is worth every bit of admiration that has been written about it and you’re surely find excellent photo opportunities here.
1:30 p.m.: Chimi Lhakhang, the unique fertility temple in Punakha is next on your list.
2:30 p.m. Chimi Lakhang Cafeteria and Lobesa Village Restaurant are some places you can head to for lunch.
4:00 p.m.: A kingdom that measures its progress based on the Gross National Happiness welcomes you to Punakha Dzong, the palace of happiness!
