Punakha Tourism & Travel Guide

Nestled in the midst of the breathtaking sceneries of Bhutan, Punakha is famous for its picturesque beauty and Buddhist majestic dzongs. Among the many fascinating things to explore here is the Punakha Dzong, which is a stunning piece of architecture with an amazing view of the sparkling water. This dzong or palace is also the administrative centre of the Punakha district. Discover your spiritual self at the Chimi L'hakhang Temple, which can be reached by hiking through some charming paddy fields. The Punakha suspension bridge here gives you a perfect bird's-eye view of the surrounding mountains and the magnificent river flowing below. This bridge is an adventure in itself, and is definitely not for the faint hearted! You can enjoy some river rafting at the Druk Rafting Service, which makes for a fantastic experience. Although the rapids are small, but they are enough to get the adrenalin flowing! Punakha is an ideal destination to savour the authentic flavours of Bhutan. The Chimi Lakhang Cafeteria and Dochula Resort Restaurant are great for some authentic food. Since Punakha is quite popular with tourists, one can easily find suitable accommodation here. Endowed with natural beauty, Punakha is sure to make for a memorable trip!
