Enjoy A Adrenaline High At Punakha Valley

1 Days / 0 Nights :


Bright azure blue skies. The sounds of gushing waterfalls. Lush green valley. Punakha, located in western Bhutan is your postcard-perfect Himalayan paradise. It is very popular with both adrenaline junkies and culture enthusiasts. Adventure lovers visit this valley generally for camping, hiking and trekking; which are very popular here. However, these are not the only incredible recreational opportunities that the valley has to offer. It is also equally famous for rafting on the Mo Chuu and Pho Chuu rivers, on whose banks this valley is located.

Mo Chuu refers to the female river whereas Pho Chuu is the male river. Both of these come together to bring life and prosperity to the valley. Tourists believe that rivers in hilly Bhutan are dangerous for rafting. In reality, most of the rapids in Mo Chuu are if class IV and V, only a few are of class I and II. These faster rapids occur right before it meets Po Chhu and the route after that is very serene. Hence among all the rivers in Bhutan, these two are the safest for rafting. To ensure more protection, young children and older adults are not allowed to raft in Pho Chuu. The additional benefit of rafting in these rivers is the panorama. With the verdant forests of the valley spread out on both your sides, they soak you not only into their ice-cold but also into the sights and sounds of their forests. As you float downstream, making your way through the tumbling rapids, you can enjoy 360° views of the valley around you. Forget Jungle safaris, hiking and other tried and tested ways of exploring the valley. This is an exhilarating new method to explore the secrets that these mountains have to uncover. Other memorable sights of the valley include its various monasteries dating back at least to the 15th century. One of the more popular ones is the majestic Punakha Dzong, the old capital and royal residence.
