Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten, Punakha
(5/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten sits high above Punakha Valley, affording panoramic views of the verdant hillsides below. The four-storey temple remains a worthy example of the country's traditional architecture and artistic techniques. You'll have to hike for roughly an hour from the parking at the base of the hill, so be sure to bring plenty of water and a picnic to enjoy in the temple's picturesque hilltop garden. Our Punakha vacation route planner makes visiting Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten and other Punakha attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
