In Bhutan, all passes are highlighted with flags and Bhutanese Chortens. And if one is lucky, you can witness the snow peaks of the eastern Himalayas....unfortunately, we weren't.
Timings 6 AM to 5 PM. Entry fee 300 Nu (incl Dzong)
Once I finished the sightseeing in Thimphu I headed towards one of the most beautiful valleys of Bhutan, Punakha next morning.On the way to Punakha, a popular stop over destination is Dochula Pass. It's a memorial to martyrs. It takes around 45 minutes drive from Thimphu to reach Dochula. A majestic circular collection of 108 chortens stands proud amidst the dense layer of Deodar, Juniper and Alpines in surrounding. This Stupa is built as a memorial for the soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the war against insurgents.
