Rafting in Punakha
Spend a few hours on the water and see a different side to Bhutan. Rafting on the Mo Chhu (Female River) and the Pho Chhu (Male River) gives you the chance to opt for how adventurous you want to be. For beginners and families who want an enjoyable and scenic float down the river, we recommend the Mo Chhu. You start below Khamsum Chorten and the river takes you past the Queen’s Winter Palace and the King’s weekend retreat before coming to an end just below the Punakha Dzong. The Male River on the other hand is for the more adventurous, who wish to tackle some of Bhutan’s white water with some challenging rapids while enjoying the pristine forests and farmland on either side of the river.
