Punakha Winter Trek

Punakha Winter Trek is a short and easy three days trek that takes trekkers from the lovely strands of conifer forest of capital Thimphu (7700ft/2350m) and takes all the way down to the dense vegetation through virgin forest to ancient capital of Punakha, which lies at an altitude of somewhat lowly as 4430ft/1315m. The altitude of the trail covers almost a thousand meters in range but the slopes are mostly gradual and should not present hikers with much difficulty. The trail takes you through lush green forest with a view of Phajoding Monastery as you ascend from Thimphu and other permanent historical temples reaching Punakha valley.
