We completed this trek after finishing the trek to Tango Monastery. This was a slightly more challenging trek but equally as rewarding. The views are incredible at each stage of the walk and those seem at the top are worth the challenging trek up!

Takes about hour an hour walk to get up there. Well trodden path so not necessary to have guide to show the way. Nice traditional drawbridge decorated with lots of prayer flags. Below is clear water stream. Small temple compound compared to Tiger Nest and...More

This is a great way to start your spiritual immersion in Bhutan while building your fitness for a later hike up to the Tiger's Nest. The views are spectacular, and once you arrive at the monastery, the peace and tranquility will further enhance your experience....More

Meditation central, with monks doing their thing. Bhutan's first monastery dating from 1620. If you continue up the hill, mountain goats will greet your journey, as you get to the chapel. Terrific site seeing the past and present converge. Tibetan Buddhism lives.

There are two ways to reach this monastery, a long one (2-3 hrs) which passes through villages and a more direct (and steep one) which takes about 1 hour. Pace yourself if you are not used to high altotudes, the monastery is perched on top...More

Highlight was the kind senior Monk who came out to greet us with his iPhone. He had lived by himself in his mountain home for the last 10 years. But had clean mountain water and nearly free electricity with internet and frequent visitors. He smiled...More

Because other travelers and locals come here to meditate (it is Bhutan's first monastery) there is extra peace and quiet ( the 1 hour hike up also helps). So we enjoyed our visit - it is a nice change from the standard tourist tour On...More
