Hotel Y.T.

Hotel in Punakha & Khuruthang

This friendly, family-run hotel, halfway between Punakha and Wangdue Phodrang, was established in 1991 and is still a popular choice. Slightly old-fashioned, rooms vary greatly from giant new-block doubles to stuffy old-block singles (avoid these). The charming owner is an ex-forester, and gardeners will enjoy chatting to him about the mango, avocado, guava and papaya trees scattered around the central courtyard.

The hotel is above the road department complex in Lobesa, 1.5km from Metshina en route to Wangdue Phodrang.
