Where to stay in Punakha

Though a handful of hotels and resorts exist in Punakha, many visitors choose to stay in national capital Thimphu or a nearby town or village. Thimphu has the widest selection of accommodations, but you may want to consider one of the cozy spots tucked in the valley, just a 20- to 25-minute drive from Punakha. If you're having trouble finding lodging in Punakha, take a look at the nearby towns of Wolakha, Sopsokha, and Lobesa.
