Take in the panoramic view of the snow-covered Himalayan mountains at Dochula Pass. Located at an elevation of 3,100 m (10,200 ft), the pass includes many interesting attractions, including 108 memorial chortens or stupas, a botanical park popular for its rhododendron garden, and a monastery. The entire site rests surrounded by cypress tree forests, while colorful inscribed Buddhist flags, representing natural forces, decorate the hill slopes, bringing prosperity and peace to the nation. Sometimes the weather can get foggy and chilly, so wear warm clothing and check the forecast if you want the clearest vista.
