Punakha suspension bridge, at 160 metres is the longest in Bhutan. It is right above the Po Chhu river and tied by the famous prayer flags on each side.
The Bhutanese give a lot of importance to these prayer flags. In the coming Bhutan series, I will be giving more information on these.

Dochula pass is located on the way to Punakha from Thimphu. The pass is a popular location among tourists as it offers a stunning 360 degree panoramic view of the Himalayan mountain range. The view is especially scenic on clear, winter days with snowcapped mountains forming a majestic backdrop to the tranquility of the 108 chortens gracing the mountain pass.

The profundity of human architecture can be seen everywhere from the great Taj Mahal to this edifice of cultural beliefs, Punakha Dzong. Built in 1638, it still holds the purpose of its construction for protection against inundation of political enemies, carrying out admistrative practices and a religious school for the monks of Bhutan.

One of the most beautiful captures I have made while I was in Bhutan. A country which so rush in culture and traditions, the small kids and their smiles are still one of the most enchanting things I found there.
My next blog post entry will be on Punakha and so stay tuned!! Happy Sunday friends!!

🕉️ Bhutanese has a complex relationship with their rivers 🌊 They are taught to both fear and respect the river. Lakes and rivers are often associated with deities and spirits. Inside #Punakha dzong (fortress), there is purported to be a secret passage that leads to the water table underneath. With two rivers flowing on either side of the massive structure, it would not be surprising to hit water when digging underneath the 17th-century edifice. Bhutanese folklore is full of such stories of mystery.

Enroute Punakha from Thimphu, I was just not prepared to brace the sight of the Dochula Pass. Bang in the centre of the highway, a mound grows out of the tar to platform 108 memorial chortens(stupas), chrome green grass speckled with chrome yellow wild flowers and the serenity of the white limestone of the chortens.

Like in the rest of my trip, this was a shared taxi: my co passengers and the driver had accepted to stop on the way for 10mins, for me to 'see' the Pass. Getting down the car, as I caught glimpse of all that surrounded me, it felt like a lot to get smitten over with, within 10mins!

Completed in 2008 as an initiative by the eldest Queen Mother to celebrate 100 years of monarchy in Bhutan, the first, bottommost layer has 45 chortens, the next 36, and the final one 27 built around the main chorten. There is also a monastery and the gateway to the Royal Botanical garden in the Himalayas, in the vicinity.

My Dad @cecilkumar shot this video from his phone and this is his journey from India to Bhutan. On a side note: we compiled a documetnary film of our Bhutan journey and his footage I thought was unusable because it was shot on Vertical mode. However thanks to #IGTV I could use his wonderful shots. #bhutan #india #roadtrip #thimphu #paro #punakha #phunstoling #holiday #travel

Chimi Lhakhang is a Buddhist monastery, in the Punakha District of Bhutan, idyllically placed on a hill. The stupa and meditation hall, was constructed by the “Divine Madman,” the eccentric Yogi and saint Drukpa Kunley, who blessed the entire grounds. The monastery is renowned throughout Bhutan as a fertility inducing magnet, pledging that all who wish to conceive will find guidance at the temple.

There are moments which acts as the mirror of inner self. You might like to sit there with frequently changing vistas in-front of you with your journal in hand and allowing yourself to feel everything that surface out to your mind. You tend let go of any obligations and tightness in your mind and that my friend is tranquility! .

Dolma ༼ སྒྲོལ་མ ༽
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
If there ever was a caveman who looked on in awe as his gifted friend drew beautiful caricatures and stick figures of men with spears chasing bison and elephants, of the stars and the sun, and of children playing and women washing clothes near wigwams, I’m pretty sure I can trace back the ancestry of my soul to that guy looking on. I can watch people paint all day, especially videos of Bob Ross, America’s famous television painting tutor and master. And, I can admire his end work for ever and ever. Any surprise given the number of murals, art and frescoes I photograph and put up in this #instagramaccount? These are three beautiful murals of Dolmas (Taras) I found during one of my jaunts in the sacred temples and monasteries of Bhutan. Have a blessed day! 😊

Everyone needs to climb the stairs of expediency and courage to glib yourself towards the path of success, which is achieved by incorrigible curiosity.

Want to visit Bhutan.. Mr. Mongal Singh Tamang (+97517607472) is the best person to reach out to. He was an awesome host, throughout our journey in Bhutan.

Thank you Mongal 😁 for everything.

One of the longest suspension bridge in Bhutan, spanning 160 -180m and perched high above the very swift river of Po Chhu. Draped with prayer flags, the bridge connects the town of Punakha and the Punakha Dzong, mainly used by locals from the other side of the town as a shortcut to Punakha Dzong.

Great place to end the day in Punakha, Bhutan .

The Punakha Dzong, also known as Pungtang Dewa chhenbi Phodrang (meaning "the palace of great happiness or bliss") Constructed by Ngawang Namgyal, 1st Zhabdrung Rinpoche, in 1637–38 (in 1 year), it is the second oldest and second largest dzong in Bhutan and one of its most majestic structures.

According to a local legend, the sage Padmasambhava prophesized that “a person named Namgyal will arrive at a hill that looks like an elephant”. Ngawang Namgyal, 1st Zhabdrung Rinpoche, found the peak of the hill, which appeared in the shape of trunk of an elephant as prophesized, and built the dzong in 1637-38.
