#4 of 7 in Things to do in Punakha
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. See Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten and all Punakha has to offer by arranging your trip with our Punakha day trip planner.

  • Beautiful Monastery atop a hill, that you need to trek up thru paddy fields and mud track. Nice view of Punakha valley from top. Must visit.
  • It's a nice temple in Punakha, Bhutan. It takes 1 hour to reach the temple on foot. The temple is very beautiful
  • The place is beautiful but rooms are not always comfortable. No mosquito net on the windows, no cieling fan.
  • Beautiful paintings! Very picturesque view from the top! Love the Bhodi tree! 😊
  • It's really Fun for the Early Morning Hike. This Temple is a splendid example of the Bhutanese Architecture and Art.
