  • A must see, while in Punakha. From the taxi drop off point, it is a 5-10 minutes walk to the Suspension bridge. I will recommend to walk over to the other side of the bridge, have tea at the General Store there and walk back. Watch out for cattle crossing the bridge
  • Very nice experience of suspension bridge . In the centre of the bridge you feel the most wayving. It feels we can fall down . Their we have a beautiful view of the river basin and enjoy the wind swings. Clean river boosts the experience.
  • A little walk from the drop off point will take you to the wonderful suspension bridge, ideal for adventurous people, with mesmerizing views of the ranges and torrential river downstream, along with fascinating views of the surrounding areas.
  • What an amazing location above the "male" river , truly a pleasure to have done the crossing. The merging of the himalayan water with the valley and staring and viewing at the stunning scenery all round ... there is indeed a heaven on earth !!!!
  • It is a spectacular bridge and offers an unmatched helicopter view (it is long and yet suspended high up) to the Punakha valley. Those who are height-phobic, I wouldn’t recommend you to go walk over this bridge. An idle place for photography.
