The valley of Punakha is a very scenic place. In addition to its natural setting, it is also known for the 2nd longest suspension bridge in Bhutan. Set very high on a fast mountain river, this bridge is perfect for those who wish to get their heart pumping with excitement. This suspension bridge connects the town of Punakha and the Punakha Dzong with the smaller villages surrounding the Punakha town.
I crossed this bridge too while I walked from Punakha to Kuruthang on the other side of the river and through the rice fields. After crossing this bridge, I saw these Buddhist monks from the Punakha Dzong cross the same suspension bridge and couldn’t miss this interesting moment of these red robed monks and the long suspension bridge in the background. If you ever go to Punakha, do not miss to get on this bridge. I will be a fun walk.
