The pass does not only have all the scenic views of valleys on both sides but also is the site of the 108 Druk Wangyal Chortens.

You shall pass Dochu La Pass while going to Punakha. It is a beautiful spot at around 10,000 feet above sea level in the midst of valleys. During clear skies, you would be able to see all the major peaks of Bhutan from this range. Dochu La Pass is famous for is 108 Chortens. It is a place which people worship.
This is such a beautiful place with a heart touching story. There are 108 Stupas built at the pass in memory of soldiers who lost lives in attacking and driving away Assamese militants whose target was India and not Bhutan. Doesn't that show you the pretty heart of people? These stupas are the major attraction at Dochula pass. Moreover you get an awesome view of Himalayas covered in snow. Also there is a Buddhist temple Druk Wangyal Chorten near which has an admirable view.
If the weather is clear and you got to see the surrounding snow-laden peaks, it's one of the most beautiful mountain passesLocation - 20 km from ThimphuFor bird's eye view of the place and a quite experience, you can visit Druk Wangyal Lhakhang temple which is nearby. The intricate design of the temple is a marvelous example of Bhutanese art and architecture.
