Breathtaking view!
The view of suspension bridge over the gushing River with the mountains surrounding is just amazing????
Longest bridge in bhutan constructed over the river.
This bridge spans about 170 to 180 meters in length. This bridge is also draped with prayer flags due some local belief
We need to walk a lot in order to reach the bridge

The second-longest suspension bridge in Bhutan, Punakha Suspension Bridge is perched over the Mo Chhu and Po Chhu (river) and is about 160-180 meters in length. It is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the world that connects Punakha Dzongkhag to the rest of the valley. Believed to be built by Thangtong Gyalpo, the bridge has undergone several years of renovation. It has an integral part in the architectural history of Bhutan as it was built to connect the villages of Samdingkha and Wangkha by the kings of Wangchuk. The bridge is beautifully draped with prayer flags and makes a perfect spot for bird watching and photography. Although it is built sturdily, it shakes when winds blow strongly, and that is when the thrill is at its zenith.

Punakha suspension bridge is undoubtedly a standing master piece surrounded by beautiful nature.You will find a village cafe across the bridge.It is one of the longest suspension bridges in Bhutan.This is around 520 ft long. This bridge keeps moving with the air flow which,will give you a shaky shaky feeling.Its a walking distance from Punakha Dzong. This bridge provides spectacular view of the river and valley.

It is totally refreshing to walk over this longest Suspension bridge, specially towards the evening when the weather is calm with the cool river breeze.

It is beautiful and would be nice to walk around if you are keen in Photography.

We reached the bridge from the Punakha Dzong side. It has a capacity of 500 pedestrians. When we reached in the middle of the bridge it swing a bit which is little uncomfortable. The scenic beauty is breath taking. On the other side there is a cafe also, one can chill out .
