Dochula Pass, Thimphu

(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Take in the panoramic view of the snow-covered Himalayan mountains at Dochula Pass. Located at an elevation of 3,100 m (10,200 ft), the pass includes many interesting attractions, including 108 memorial chortens or stupas, a botanical park popular for its rhododendron garden, and a monastery. The entire site rests surrounded by cypress tree forests, while colorful inscribed Buddhist flags, representing natural forces, decorate the hill slopes, bringing prosperity and peace to the nation. Sometimes the weather can get foggy and chilly, so wear warm clothing and check the forecast if you want the clearest vista.

  • This April, here is quite cold. Fresh air and good view. But someday There is a lot of fog, so you will not see the mountains.  more »
  • Very nice stop with the stupas and beautiful view on the highest mountain peaks all around, a real must is left just climb up to visit the temple

  • My expectations were exceeded more than on the outward journey in the Punakha Valley: incredible views of the chain of 6 and 7000 of the Himalayas. On the return journey was the term equal to zero. You can not force it shut. By the way, nice café with clean European toilet.
