Mo Chhu, Punakha Overview

Starting from Gasa Dzongkhag district near Tibet and Bhutan border, the Mo Chhu(River) flows towards Punakha in the central region of Bhutan. It then joins the Po Chhu from the northeast of Bhutan. The confluence of the two rivers is right below the Punakha Dzong which is a treasure trove of experiences as activities like Rafting and Kayaking are carried out here. The confluence of the 'Mo chhu' and 'Po chhu' is called 'Puna Tseng Chhu', which then flows through Wangdue Phodrang, and the districts of Dagana and Tsirang.
