We were very disappointed going there. We saw nothing because of huge fog. So, only thing we saw was people were doing roaming around saying "Om mani pe mey hu"

When we were headed to Punakha via Dochula Pass and upon arrival it is cool and misty. It offered mysterious nd suspense with the fog. Upon leaving Punakha we revisited the pass and it is wonderful where the Sun peeked thru and we were able to capture more of the stuppas.

Dochula pass was the coolest place during our 5 days stay in Bhutan. We were surrounded by clouds and we felt as if we were heaven. View of the valley from the pass was just divine. There is a restaurant at the pass where you can have hot coffee, tea and freshly baked bakery products.

We visited Dochula on our way from Thimpu to Punakha valley. It was a beautiful drive and as our vehicle moved uphill, we could feel the air getting colder and the vegetation greener and denser with Deodar, Juniper, Spruce and Pine. Our guide Tenzing Namgay told us about the 108 memorial Choetens the queen mother of Bhutan built for the soldiers that laid down their lives in the war against insurgents in 2003. The then king Dorji Wangchuk himself lead the army to victory.
As our vehicle stopped at Dochula we were dumbstruck by the picturesque landscape. The mist was rolling up from the valley and we were walking through clouds! The 108 Choetens stood majestic and the green grass had a lot of blue Iris and yellow Dandelions growing. The tall conifets with Lichens hanging down looked so stately.
The bakery had some delicious scones, rolls, mushroom pies and coffee to offer, which we devoured in no time.
It was time to leave, but we were told that we will be stopping over again on our way back from Punakha. We did stop over and went into the Bhutan Royal Botanical garden and Sanctuary.
Truly Dochula was an awesome place to visit!
