Dhumra: The picture of Bhutan’s true hospitality

The best view of the famous Punakha Dzong can be had from nowhere else but here, from high up in the pine forest, opposite the lush Mindagang village by the side of the Phochhu, far away. The songs of the cicadas make it all the more idyllic, almost heaven. The road up to this spot, winding on and on through a rough road that feels like a journey towards eternity stretches on until the forest door opens up to halcyon view of the heaven itself. All the rough rides and troubled thinking die down right here.
