Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten, Punakha

#4 of 7 in Things to do in Punakha
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. See Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten and all Punakha has to offer by arranging your trip with our Punakha day trip planner.
