Dochula Pass

Nature At Its Best

Considered as one of the best places to visit on Thimpu, Dochula Pass is a beauty of panoramic views of the breathtaking sceneries of the soaring mountains, steep green valleys and some historic temples that make up the city of Bhutan. Dochula pass is the first high pass in the western region which besides being a landmark facing Himalayan region is also one of the religious attractions. Located at an altitude of 3150m above the sea level on the road to Punakha it gives the traveler a 360 degrees view of the landscape. After a 35 minute drive from the capital city of Thimpu, it serves as the stop for the tourists who are on their way towards Punakha.

Colorful prayer flags and stupas are the most incredible sights of this place. The Dorchula pass with 108 chortens called the Druk Wangyal Chortens were built by the queen mother in the honor of Bhutanese army who drove their country towards victory in a southern Bhutan war in around 2003. Each of theses stupas have imprints of Buddha and religious imprints inscribed. Local people also crowd to this place to offer their prayers at Druk Wangyal Lhakhang. The festive atmosphere begins on December 13th when Dochula Druk Wangyel takes place here in the premises of this temple. Here you will also find a small cafe near the pass, which is good for a quick tea break prior going back to the road.

There is really no moment where the Druk Wangyal Chorten is not crowded, as cars after cars are arriving every minute, with every visitor stepping out of their vehicles excited to see the wonderful mountain range. This is a great place to really explore the beautiful Bhutanese architecture and monuments. The beauty is one of a kind and something that you could only witness here.
