From Dochula pass, en route to Punakha hike and visit the temple dedicated to the Divine Mad Monk - Drukpa Kuenley. The hike takes about an hour and about 40 minutes return to the car road. Next day begins with a short hike through rice fields, chilies and cabbage, to the Khamsum Yuley Namgyal Chorten, a monument dedicated to the King of Bhutan. The next stop will be the magnificent Punakha Dzong built on the confluence of the Po and Mo (male and female) rivers. This fortress is the winter residence of the monastic order’s head. After lunch visit a farmhouse and meet with the farmer and family.
Day 5 & 6: Paro
After breakfast, retrace the journey back to Paro and reach by lunch time. After lunch, visit the Ta Dzong, a 17th century monument, which now houses the National Museum with an excellent collection of Bhutanese antiques. It served as a watch tower during the Tibetan invasion and played a strategic role in Bhutan’s successful defenses. Next, visit the Paro Dzong. This again as with all Dzongs, is the centre for civil and religious activities. The evenings are free to look around the small quaint town of Paro.
