Punakha Dzong is also known by the name of Pungthang Dewa Chhenbi Phodrang which translates into ‘The Palace of Great Happiness’. This majestic building dates back to the 17th century and is the second largest and the second oldest Dzong in Bhutan.
The entire building follows a very rustic and traditional Bhutanese architecture and all six storeys have been made out of compacted earth, stone and timbers. If you are looking for Bhutanese places to visit in December, there are not many that match the stunning geographical features that surround Punakha Dzong. Since the Dzong is situated between the Pho Chhu (male) and Mo Chhu (female) rivers in the Punakha valley, the scenery becomes all the more beautiful when everything is covered in mist, giving the place an otherworldly vibe.
