Dochula Pass | 108 Druk Wangyal Chortens
Impressive Chortens (Stupas) And Beautiful Views Of Eastern Himalayan Mountains
As a part of our beautiful drive to Punakha, crossed our first big pass Dochula Pass (3,118 m / 10,230 ft.). This site is famous for its 108 Druk Wangyal Chortens (dedicated to Bhutanese soldiers who lost their lives in a battle against Assamese insurgents from India).
We were so lucky to have beautiful weather with clear views of the Eastern Himalayan Mountains (and Bhutan’s highest peak – Mt. Masanggang at 7,158 meters (23,484 ft).
Coffee And Tea At 60th Café
After taking many pictures of the beautiful 108 Druk Wangyal Chortens and the surrounding Himalayan Mountains, the group got together and shared a cup of coffee and tea at the 60th Café, which overlooks the Chortens.
