Mountain pass on the road from Thimpu to Punakha where 108 memorial chortens are placed

Dochula Pass is a mountain pass on the road from Thimpu to Punakha where 108 memorial chortens or stupas known as “Druk Wangyal Chortens” have been built by Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk, the eldest Queen Mother. Apart from the chortens there is a monastery called the Druk Wangyal Lhakhang (temple), built in honour of the fourth Druk Gyalpo (head of the state of Bhutan), His Majesty The King Jigme Singye Wangchuck; the open grounds in its front yard is a venue for the annual Dochula Druk Wangyel Festival which is held in December. The pass with 108 memorial chortens is adjacent to the country’s first Royal Botanical Park. Also presently the Druk Wangyal Lhakhang (Temple) holds a very large super size butter lamp made purely of gold and is one of the highlights in this temple. The Dochula ground now has many beautiful manmade caves that are set up in natural surroundings that can be used for meditation and prayers. 

The pass is a popular location among tourists as it offers a stunning 360 degree panoramic view of the Himalayan mountain range. The view is especially scenic on clear, winter days with snowcapped mountains forming a majestic backdrop to the tranquility of the 108 chortens gracing the mountain pass.

Bhutanese families enjoy visiting the pass during holidays and weekends to picnic and simply enjoy the scenery. It is common to see families and groups of friends seated amongst the chortens, enjoying a packed lunch and hot tea. For tourists this is an ideal location to capture beautiful pictures of the Himalayan mountain range during clear, warm days.
