OVERVIEW

An adrenalin-pumping adventure in Phochu river in Punakha. Drive above Thimphu city, pass Mothithang area and drop by the Takin Reserve to see our national animal Takin, which is endemic only to Himalayan ranges. The unique animal supposed to have the body of a cow and head of a goat, is believed to have been created by Divine Madman out of his super natural power. The peace road finishes at broadcast tower, which further up is adorned by fluttering prayer flags. The view of south Thimphu from here is superb. The trail heads up for a while and detour to right through apple orchard and few farm houses above the trail. From here the trail drops down gently through oak, blue pine and rhododendron until you will reach Wangditse monastery. The view of Tashichodzong, Thimphu city, and Buddha statue is stunning from here. The trail from here switches back towards broadcast tower following a bicycle trail.
