The Haa valley was opened for the first time to foreign tourists in 2002. It is culturally rich valley and some of famous sites in this region are: 7th century Lhakhang Karpo (White temple) and Lhakhang Nagpo (Black temple) at the foothills of a venerated three brotherly mountains known as Meri Puensum.
The valley is also very famous in Bhutan in terms of the diversity of the folk culture, legends and shamanistic rituals. The Haa Chhu originates in a valley glacier on the south facing slope of the main Himalayas. The source area is located to the south of Jomolhari (abode of Goddess Jomo).A number of smaller streams flowing from glaciers in hanging valleys join the main stream. The Ha Chhu then flows in a general direction, south south-east to join the Wong Chhu at Chukho.
Traditionally Salmonidae (salmo trutta) and Asla (schizothorax progastus) was found in the Haa Chhu. Brown trout (salmo trutta fario) was first introduced in Bhutan in 1930. A hatchery was established at Haa immediately thereafter and another at Wangchuk Taba in 1975. The Asla is held in high esteem by the Bhutanese and brown trout seems to be feeding on and suppressing indigenous cold-water fish such as the Asla. In 1987, the FAO fact finding and project idea formulating mission for small-scale cold-water fisheries visited Bhutan. A subsequent visit by experts established that the Haa hatchery was more conducive to fish culture than that in the foothill ponds.
