  • Best to go when not windy . Bridge gets increasingly wobbly as you reach center. No need to reach other side, just go halfway for photos.  more »
  • Definitely check this out . It's a very long pedestrian suspension bridge with a traditional village on the other side of the river. It's a famous bridge because of its length.  more »
  • What a marvelous piece of construction it is! Very lovely bridge. Seems boring from both the ends, but once you start walking on it you will start praising the bridge. The bridge is around 150-200 m and fun to walk on. The river flowing beneath the bridge, mountains surrounded around. Please don't forget to visit this bridge when you are in Punakha!
  • Impressive views from both end of the bridge. On the bridge itself, the score of colourful prayer flags creates an amazing views. Very nice place for picture taking.
