Rafting in the Mo Chu river

5.6 miles of rafting in 10 rapids of level 1 and 2 for 1 and a half hours, sounds like too much fun, doesn't it? The trained professionals guide you through the gentle rapids and you only have to paddle in some parts of the river to maintain the course and line. Towards the end of the course, you get a completely different perspective of the Punakha Dzong from the riverside.



Visit the Punakha Dzong

The architechtural marvel is the second oldest and the second largest dzong in Bhutan. It is situated at the intersection of the Mo Chu and Pho Chu rivers in Punakha valley. Fun fact, this entire structure was built in 1637 without using a single nail.



Visit the Punakha suspension bridge

One of the oldest suspension bridges in the world and the second-longest in Bhutan, this bridge has gone under years of renovation. It was built to connect the Samdingkha and Wangkha villages back in the days and holds major architectural and cultural importance in the history of Bhutan.
