It was around 6:00 in the morning, chilling cold outside, complete quiet. Along the way, Memorial Chorten looked as pretty as a picture.
We reached in 15 minutes. From the parking area, only the face of Buddha is visible, as we climbed the stairs and reached the top, Buddha was seated on a golden meditation hall and looked magnanimous.
I turned back and entire Thimphu Valley seemed to be below me.
While exercising, I saw the sun making its way from behind the mountains and when I looked at one of the largest statues of Buddha in the world, it was shining golden.
How to reach – Its 6-7 km from Thimphu town, on the top of mount Kuenselphodrang Nature Park. Our driver cum friend lambu took us there. If you are going for sunrise, you need to book a taxi beforehand.
