These are beautiful buildings, and have provided the administration function of Bhutan for centuries. Also visit several temples and museums in the capital Thimphu, learn about how Buddhism affects everyday life, and drive over high passes on narrow winding roads through thick forests to the scenic Punakha Valley.
