After an early breakfast take a scenic drive on the mountain route towards the former capital of Bhutan, passing through Dochu La pass (Alt: 10,000ft). Stunning scenery of the Himalayan ranges can be witnessed on a clear day from Dochula pass. Walk around the 108 stupas dedicated to His Majesty the King by Her Majesty the Queen Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk.
