Khuruthang is a city in Punakha district located a few kilometers from Punakha.

Understand Edit

Khuruthang is totally devoid of charm and is a monument to brutish concrete architecture. However, as the town is the final destination of shared taxis from Thimphu, independent travelers heading to the much pleasanter Punakha Valley and its famous dzong generally have to pass through here.

Get in Edit

There is a constant flow of shared taxis from Thimphu, which cost around nu300 and take around 90 minutes.
