This is Bhutan’s former capital city and is mainly famous for its majestic Punakha Dzong, that is located at the confluence of the river Pho Chhu and river Mo Chhu. Other than this, the place is mainly renowned for its trekking routes that take you to the remotest parts of the country and offer a paradise for those interested in wild life, bird watching, and natural beauty.
Other places of interest in Bhutan include Punakha valley, which is Bhutan’s rice bowl with red and white rice harvested along the banks of Pho Chu and Mo Chu rivers, and trekking routes that take you to the suspension bridge in Mitesgang. You can visit the Dzongs scattered all over the valley, Tsechu, the Dochula Pass and last but not the least, Phuentsholing, 175 km from Paro where you will find the Chukha Hydroelectric Plant built by India.
However, this is only the tip of the iceberg – there are many more for you! Just visit Bhutan and you will get to know!
