Punakha Dzong - Fortress Monastery - Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan
In 1907, Bhutan's first King, Ugyen Wangchuck, was crowned in Punakha Dzong the Fortress-Monastery. Punakha was Bhutan's capital until 1955.
The Fortress-Monastery - Punakha Dzong is an impressive massive structure situated strategically at the confluence of two rivers - Pho Chu (father) and Mo Chu (mother).

Bhutan Travel Guide - Trip to Punakha Dzong and Farm Stay (Day 13)
►Subscribe for more videos:
On Day 13 of our Bhutan travel and food trip, we drove from Thimphu to Punakha.
Dochula Pass - On the drive from Thimphu to Punakha, you’ll pass through Dochula Pass, a beautiful mountain pass. Although it was foggy, there were still great views and it had an almost eerie feel to it.
Punakha Dzong - A Dzong is the center of government, administration, and religion in every district of Bhutan, and one of the most famous places to visit in Punakha is the local Dzong. Unfortunately they don’t allow any video inside the dzong, but the views from outside were still spectacular.
Punakha Suspension Bridge - This bridge was a little scary to cross, but the beauty was amazing.
Yak Herder’s Camp - Food and Lodging - For lunch we stopped at Yak Herder’s camp, there weren’t too many food options in this area of Bhutan. The food was alright, we mostly ate Indian food. Total price - 655 BTN ($9.83) for 3
Aum Leki Wangmo Farmhouse - For the night we checked into Aum Leki Wangmo Farmhouse a secluded home stay high up in the mountains. It was dark when we arrived, but it was beautiful. We had a home cooked Bhutanese food meal for dinner.
It was an honor to be invited by MyBhutan to visit Bhutan to explore Bhutanese food and culture. Thank you to MyBhutan Productions for making my trip and this video possible!

Punakha Dzong Fortress: Must visit place in Bhutan
Traditional footbridge near the magnificent fortress, Punakha Dzong over the Mo Chuu river in Bhutan.
The Punakha Dzong, also known as Pungtang Dechen Photrang Dzong (meaning the palace of great happiness or bliss) is the administrative centre of Punakha dzongkhag in Punakha, Bhutan. Constructed by Zhabdrung (Shabdrung) Ngawang Namgyal in 1637--38, it is the second oldest and second largest dzong in Bhutan and one of its most majestic structures. The Dzong houses the sacred relics of the southern Drukpa Kagyu school including the Rangjung Kasarpani, and the sacred remains of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal and Terton Padma Lingpa. Punakha Dzong was the administrative centre and the seat of the Government of Bhutan until 1955, when the capital was moved to Thimphu.
The Dzong is located at the confluence of the Pho Chhu (father) and Mo Chhu (mother) rivers in the Punakha--Wangdue valley. The source of the Mo chu river is in the northern hills of Lighsi and Laya in Bhutan, and in Tibet. The Po Chu River is fed by glaciers in the Lunana region of the Punakha valley. After the confluence of these two rivers, the main river is known as Puna Tsang chu or Sankosh River and flows down through Wangdiphodrang, crosses the Bhutan--India border at Kalikhola and eventually meets the Brahmaputra River.
In view of the healthy climate in the region, Punakha is the winter capital of Bhutan. The head of the clergy of Bhutan with his entourage of monks spend the winter in this dzong. Jacaranda trees grow around the dzong, blooming with mauve flowers in the spring.
The Dzong is part of the Drukpa school of Mahayana Buddhism in Bhutan. It is the second oldest and most majestic dzong in Bhutan built at the orders of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. It is a six-storied structure with a central tower or Utse at an average elevation of 1,200 metres (3,900 ft) with a scenic, mountainous background. The materials used in building the Dzong consisted of compacted earth, stones and timber in doors and windows. The Dzong was constructed as an embodiment of Buddhist values and was one of the 16 dzongs built by the Shabdrong during his rule from 1594 to 1691. The Dzong measures 180 metres (590 ft) in length with a width of 72 metres (236 ft) and has three docheys (courtyards). The defensive fortifications built in the dzong to protect it from enemy attacks consist of a steep wooden draw stairway and a heavy wooden door that is closed at night.

Punakha Dzong in Bhutan
The Punakha Dzong, also known as Pungtang Dewa chhenbi Phodrang (meaning the palace of great happiness or bliss), is the administrative centre of Punakha District in Punakha, Bhutan. It is the second oldest and second largest dzong in Bhutan.
Punakha Dzong was the administrative centre and the seat of the Government of Bhutan until 1955, when the capital was moved to Thimphu.
Dzong architecture is a distinctive type of fortress architecture found mainly in Bhutan and Tibet. The architecture is massive in style with towering exterior walls surrounding a complex of courtyards, temples, administrative offices, and monks' accommodation.
Punakha is around 70 Kms from Thimphu.
Special thanks to Namgay our driver who showed us amazing places in Thimphu and Punakha. He also charged reasonably without much bargaining whereas most of the other drivers that we met used to bargain a lot.
You can contact him to book his taxi for a day sight seeing in Thimphu or Punakha etc.
