Experience thrilling Rafting

Punakha is a popular site of Bhutan's most prominent rafting trips. White water rafting on the Pho Chhu begins with a climb up the side of the stream through timberland and farmland to the put-in at Samdingkha. The boating some portion of the outing has two or three class III rapids and finishes in a blast with the 'Fierce Buddha' fast alongside Punakha Dzong. 

The Khamsum Yuelley Namgyal Chorten connect, about 6km above Punakha Dzong, is the perfect spot for unwinding rafting and kayaking glide trips down the Mo Chhu. This is best for beginners. As the stream winds through the wide valley, you glide past one of the queen’s winter living arrangements, the lord's weekend home and some delightful farmland before taking out just beneath Punakha Dzong.
