Dochula pass – A cluster of 108 chortens gracing the mountain pass is situated on the way to Punakha from Thimphu. The location offers a beautiful 360 degree panoramic view of the Himalayan Mountain range.
They are also known as the Druk Wangyal Chortens- the construction of these 108 chortens was commissioned by the eldest Queen Mother, Her Majesty Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk. The pass is also popular spiritual destination for both locals and tourists because an important temple is located on the crest of Dochula pass.
Locals do enjoy visiting the pass with their families during holidays and weekends for a picnic and simply enjoy the scenery.
