Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten sits high above Punakha Valley, affording panoramic views of the verdant hillsides below. The four-storey temple remains a worthy example of the country's traditional architecture and artistic techniques. You'll have to hike for roughly an hour from the parking at the base of the hill, so be sure to bring plenty of water and a picnic to enjoy in the temple's picturesque hilltop garden.

It is a 45 min. hike up to this temple. The view along the hike is quite beautiful. But the view at the top of the temple is a 360 degree view of the whole valley, it is worth the hike. more »
Really beautiful view there. Can only take photo outside the temple and on the top level of viewing point. Cant take photos inside the temple... before you even reach there, need to trek and hike a little. Beware of all the poo poos along the way.....
Quite simply the best view I have witnessed with my own eyes. Without a shadow of a doubt, if you have an opportunity to visit, you’d be silly not to spend time getting to the top. The small hike (45mins at a slow pace) was beautiful in its own right (wading through rice fields and along streams). But nothing compares to the top. Make sure you climb the three sets of stairs inside the temple to get to the roof!
