Excellent views of the city. Underconstruction so we couldnt explore the place entirely and had to be content with only the views and the fine breeze there

I just came back from a wonderful trip, 8 days 7 nights in Western of Bhutan, with Bhutan Rebirth Tours and Treks. I visited Thimphu, Paro and Haa. The highlight of my trip was the 2 days treking in Chele La and Pangka La. The home stay at a small village in Haa District is also another highlight of my... More

This place is a small drive from the Thimpu town. You can actually see the Buddha from Thimpu town. The chorten there is still under construction and is nearing completion. The hill offers some beautiful views of the Thimpu valley. The statue too is beautiful. Worth a visit I would say.

We went during the day and it was breathtaking. But going at night, now that's truly a sight to see. You can truly experience the beauty that is Thimphu from the point, with all the shining lights and the "hustle" of the city. Locals say this is a fond make out spot when they were in high school nod you... More

Buddha Point is one of the best vantage points from which to see all of Thimphu ... the Buddha - a gift from the Indonesians - is GIGANTIC ... but construction debris is everywhere and there's not much to do up there.
