Kyipu Canyon


It's worth making the short (1.5km) drive southwest of town to this canyon, which you can cross on a vertigo-inducing suspension bridge draped in prayer flags. A 10-minute walk up the hill to the right after the bridge leads to a charming collection of Bhutanese-style prayer flags that offers views over Kyirong.
