Wangdue Phodrang

Shipra Shekhar
After a day's rest in Thimpu we left to see Punakha. You will cross Dochula pass on your way to Punakha where 108 memorial chortens were built by Queen in honour of the Bhutanese soldiers who were killed in the December 2003 war. It was 25th December and it snowed while I was at Dochula, it made me so happy. :D Punakha Dzong is one of most beautiful Dzong by the river. After visiting the monastery we went to stay at small place to stay called wangdue. It a quiet little mountain village. Like rest of Bhutan this is also straight out of fairytale.
