Crossing suspension bridge, traversing on edges of rice fields, climbing up the small hill,enjoying the oranges from nearby orchard,serene hill top temple to repel the spirits, beautiful view of Punakha valley and Bhutanese people serving free orange squash. I guess this place had everything we asked for on that day. A group of local students had come down for prayers and we were lucky to hear the hymes. It was a unique experience. Its about 10 KM from Khuruthang , but well worth a visit a small hike.

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.

Hiking to Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Choeten at 1800 mtr from Mochu river base is a popular excursion while in Punakha. The choeten was built by mother of 5th King of Bhutan in 1994 to mark the silver jubilee of 4th king. Most of the hike route is mud path consisting loose earth. It’s advisable to take a good walking stick along to avoid slipping. Once at the top of Choeten, one can enjoy 360 degree view of paddy fields & Mochu river.

It's a bit of a hike to get up there but well worth it and it will prepare you for the Tiger's Nest. We started at the top (to admire the views) and slowly made our way to the bottom. Basically we went in the opposite direction and I think we had a better experience. Stairs are a bit narrow and steep so be careful.

This is a lovely temple and is a very picturesque hike to get to it. There are also quite a few shops in town as you near the chorten and can have a browse (as I love to do!). I actually found the hike to this much harder than to the Tiger's Nest!!! I think that was because it seemed pretty easy so I went a bit too fast. So word of warning, go at a normal to slow pace, take rests when needed and go very early to avoid the sun. It was worth it in the end though as a beautiful place.
