  • Very beautiful suspension bridge. It is steady and long. You can cross the bridge by walking, it an amazing experience. You cab enjoy the view of the river from the bridge. You can enjoy the situation if so many people move through the bridge, it will jump and create a movement, just thrilling.
  • The suspension bridge is very sturdy and long. One needs to walk through broken path for 15-20 minutes to reach the bridge. But the view of the river from here is amazing. If there are too many people moving, the bridge jumps and sways a lot but it's really fun. Especially fun for kids.
  • Well built and maintaned metal bridge going over the male river. Cuts short foot travel distance from both sides as next option is 5km away. Worth a visit if you have a day cab with you.
  • A Must-visit place in Punakha, Bhutan. This is the longest suspension bridge. While walking on the bridge, it shakes a bit and thrills you.
  • it's the longest suspension bridge on the river. you will get amazing and quite thrilling view of the river from the bridge. no car goes near the bridge as the way is not suitable for vehicles. it takes a little walk to the bridge. a must see tourist spot in Punakha for sure. if someone plans for watching the suspension bridge, he can also visit the beautiful punakha dzong and do rafting on the river. don't miss these three if you come so far
