Yutong La Pass
Visit one of Bhutan’s most popular pass, the mystic and chilly Yutong La Pass.
Yutong La Pass is not just like any other pass. This pass is also considered as one of Bhutan’s must-see attractions thanks to its beautiful and serene environment — further boosted by the beautiful chorten or stupa located in the middle of the road and the colourful prayer flags. The foggy and chilly weather in the pass is also a bit unusual, thanks perhaps to its high elevation.
The Yutong La Pass is located in Trongsa.
