Bhutan is a fabulous travel destination, a magical ancient kingdom with beautiful scenery and a fantastic history. Drukgyal Dzong: This dzong is now merely a picturesque ruin sitting on the hillside in the upper part of the Paro District. It is thought that this monastic fortress was probably built in 1649 to commemorate and celebrate victory over an invading force from Tibet. Sadly, the structure was decimated by a fire in the 1950s.
Another breathtaking destination in Bhutan is Punakha and this place is widely visited by adventure seekers. ‘The best place to be’ for those who enjoy the adrenaline rush of river rafting in the two rivers/chhus – Mo and Pho. However, Punakha is widely famous for the 17th-century fortress Punakha Dzong which sits majestically besides the Pho and Mo Chhu. This Himalayan town hosts masked dances and traditional music during Punakha Tshechu- a religious festival of Bhutan. The feeling the place offers is surreal, and thus many people visit here mostly to understand the Bhutanese culture and history as well as to relish its divine natural beauty. Surrounding the town in the Punakha Valley, it has some must visit attractions like Chimi Lhakhang and Namgyal Chorten. From these points, one can get a grand view of rivers and mountains. Punakha Dzong and Limbhukha are also best places to see while in Punakha.
