The Gompa is easy to reach and the area around is forested with a stream that one meets below the Gompa. It is a very old building with beautiful statues inside. Walk around the gompa or sit and meditate for awhile. Even take a picnic...More

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!

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
