Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten
Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten is 30 meters (100 feet) tall and can be seen in the distance when driving or walking up from the footbridge towards the lodge. The three-leveled chorten took eight and a half years to build and was consecrated in 1999. It is dedicated to the 5th King and serves to protect him as well as the country. It is therefore filled with every form of colorful protector imaginable.
Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten emerges on a delightful edge over the Punakha valley. Her Majesty fabricated the Queen Mother, Ashi Tshering Yangdon Wangchuck it. It is a fine case of Bhutanese engineering and aesthetic conventions. This sanctuary has been devoted for the prosperity of the kingdom, its kin and every conscious being. It is a 15-20 mins climb from the suspension connect.
The Chorten would take a one-hour climb to approach. It offers a lovely perspective of the Punakha Valley.
