about dochula pass

Dochula Pass is located 40-minute uphill drive from Thimpu. This mountain pass is situated in the snow covered Himalayas o n the road from Thimpu to Punakha where 108 memorial stupas have been built by Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk. Along with the chortens, the other major attraction of the pass is the monastery known as Druk Wangyal Lhakhang (temple), which was built in honour of Jigme Singye Wangchuck, fourth Druk Gyalpo (head of the state of Bhutan). With a series of prayer flags and chortens, this place is hard to miss. The mind-blowing view of the Himalayan range from this pass will make you gape in awe.
