Uma Punakha by COMO
Uma Punakha is the second hotel in Bhutan and is one of the the COMO groups Adventure Retreats. It is an intimate, luxury lodge located at the far western end of the lush Punakha Valley. Punakha offers guests exceptional access to some of Bhutan’s most celebrated landscapes and historic sites, including the famous Temple of the Divine Madman and the imposing Punakha Dzong. Punakha’s cultural and historical significance, as well as its unspoiled natural beauty, makes the valley an essential stop on any tour of Bhutan, perfect for hiking, cycling, river rafting and exploring the area’s many wonder.

LOCATION:
Once the capital of Bhutan, and the seat of government until 1955, Punakha is home to the Punakha Dzong—an imposing temple that sits on the confluence of the two main rivers in Bhutan, the Mo Chu and Po Chu, just a short distance from the hotel.
GETTING THERE:
Flight to Paro Airport Bhutan. Punakha is five-hour drive from Paro. Guests often pair their trip with the few nights on either end at Uma Paro by COMO.
