  • The bridge is common but the natural elements around make it awesome. The river flowing down, prayer flags dancing with the wind and the green mountains behind make it so appealing. Loved this place. It's nearby Punakha Dzong.
  • Scenic view and quite long suspension bridge. The bridge is nearly 400 to 500m long. You have to walk a bit nearly 1. 5 km to reach there . The bridge is built with iron cables and swings with wind or people walks on it.
