We went on a road trip to Punankha from Thimphu on the 3rd day of our Bhutan Trip.

On the way to Punakha, we stopped at Dochula Pass to have a coffee break and admire the grand 108 stupas. The weather was really awesome - feel of the gentle breeze from the grand Himalayas was wonderful.

You can here more about the new rules of getting Bhutan entry permit (travel visa) here.

Next embrace the highlight, Punakha Dzong, containing rich Buddhist collections and with its beautiful Bhutanese architecture located by the Pho Chu and Mo Chu rivers, with rich Buddhist collections.

We also visited the Suspension Bridge nearby (the longest bridge in Bhutan).

The next highlight of our trip to trekking up the spectacular Tiger's Nest Monastery.
