  • Worth a visit and a walkable distance from the Dzhong's side gate . Good time to go would be just before the sun breaks below the crest of the western ridges. The lighting throughout the valley then is simply magical !
  • The longest suspension bridge in Bhutan. IIRC it was about 200 metres long. It is very sturdy and safe so don't worry.
  • Walking across this bridge is a nice experience ....
  • Amazing experience. The view is awesome!
  • Its amazing....I m speechless..
