Dochula pass is located on the way to Punakha from Thimphu. With its fluttering prayer flags and views over the majestic Himalayas, takes your breath away on a clear day. The highly ornate Drukwangyal Lhakhang (temple) and the 108 chortens, was built by the Queen Mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck to honour the Bhutanese soldiers who were killed when fighting Indian naxals/rebels in 2003. Walking around the 108 Chortens at the pass is a surreal experience and due to its significance the visitors are very respectful of the spiritual nature of this place.
