Excellent

To the east of the province of Punakha, the old capital of Bhutan, lies the Wangduephodrang. Its dzong, built in the 17th century at the confluence of two rivers, overlooks a beautiful valley with rice paddies. Even though we thought we'd miss the Tshechu festivals due to the dates we chose to travel, thanks to the good work of our guide Tashi we could at least see a dress rehearsal of the Wangdue Tshechu, less frequented by tourists than the one in the capital, Thimphu.
