Thimphu

Thimphu was established in the 1950’s to replace the former capital of Punakha. Situated in western Bhutan at an altitude of 2400m (7874ft) on the bank of the Wang Chu it is the country’s largest town but its population is still less than 100 000. There’s not a traffic light in sight, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and most of the places of interest can be enjoyed in just a day or two. Read more?
