A historically important place, Punakha is known as ‘the place of great happiness’, so you can’t go too far wrong with a visit, you would think. Three hours south of Thimpu, the main site is the ancient dzong (monastery), named for the town. Dating back to the mid 17th century, it has been destroyed by earthquakes but gloriously restored to its present condition.
