Kuruthang is a city in Punakha district located a few kilometers from Punakha.


Kuruthang is totally devoid of charm and is a monument to brutish concrete architecture. However, as the town is the final destination of shared taxis from Thimphu, independent travelers heading to the much pleasanter Punakha and its famous dzong generally have to pass through here.

Get in[edit]

There is a constant flow of shared taxis from Thimphu, which costs around 150nu and takes from between 90 minutes to two hours.

  • Kurathang Lhakhang (temple) is located just below the taxi rank. It is modern and lacks the interesting nooks and crannies of Bhutan's older temples, though it is certainly worth a visit.
