  • What a marvelous piece of construction it is! Very lovely bridge. Seems boring from both the ends, but once you start walking on it you will start praising the bridge. The bridge is around 150-200 m and fun to walk on. The river flowing beneath the bridge, mountains surrounded around. Please don't forget to visit this bridge when you are in Punakha!
  • Impressive views from both end of the bridge. On the bridge itself, the score of colourful prayer flags creates an amazing views. Very nice place for picture taking.
