- PUNAKHA

Before breakfast there is an option of a rural guided trek to reach a remote monastery
housing young monks where by donation you can join them for breakfast.

Your day in Punakha Valley begins with a hike up through autumn hues fields along the banks of the Mo Chhu to the upper end of the valley to the regal Khamsum Yuelley Namgyal Chorten which was built to remove negative forces and promote peace, stability and harmony in the changing world, a stunning monument recently built by the Queens and consecrated in 1999. Returning down through the valley you will have plenty of time to take in the impressive Punakha Dzong, home to the remains of Bhutan’s first ruler, Shabdrung Nawang Namgyal, and the winter residence of the monastic order’s leader and his entourage of monks.
