it was a nice stop enroute from paro to wangdue. the route can be a tiring 4 - 5 hours journey. specially with the road repairs / maintenance going on. this was a nice stop on the top of the mountain. wonderful cafe. enjoyed the coffee in the cloudy space.

The food choices were very limited given the location of this resort, though the rooms and the location makes up for everything else.

After a bumpy 2 hour road trip 8am take off from Thimpu, we arrived for a pitstop and tea break and had a wonderful view of the Himalayan mountain range- although not so clear as it was snowing. The thangka shop inside the resort was made by one of the best thangka artist of Bhutan -- from $400 to upwards... More

This lovely restaurant perched at an altitude of around 10000 feet is just the place you would want to be at after a freezing sunrise view. With fireplace and breakfast served amidst stunning views ...you would'nt want to leave the place. The washrooms were reasonably clean , and the restaurant was clean and warm .

Liked the large but cosy comfortable restaurant/café on a cold clear winter's morning. Being able to admire the stunning views of the eastern Himalayas with a hot chocolate.

Due to its isolated location near Dochu La, visitation to the hotel is often spotty and unpredictable. That explains why the service can be spotty. They do try to please, and the food is OK. If you spend the night here during the high season (winter), plan to have them serve you tea on the roof deck at dawn. Then... More

The Dochula Restaurant is located atop the Dochula pass and has a semi-circular glass enclosed sitting area apart from outside sitting and toilet facilities. The restaurant offers a buffet service as well as ala carte menu with varied food items. We had lunch - chicken curry & rice and topped it with a pancake-type dessert & coffee. The view of... More

A restaurant at the most beautiful location in Punakha, Bhutan, i.e., Dochula Pass. Can't say much about the food as we just enjoyed our tea-coffee at the place but definitely a well maintained restaurant. You can enjoy a much needed break at this place. A place worth it.
