Bhumthang..the swiss of Bhutan! What a place!! This is really a swiss of Bhutan. This is located in 4 picturesque valleys. You will get a feel of being in Scotland when you roam around in Jakar.
Jakar village resort is family run hotel located right near the Jakar Dzong. This is an old property but well maintained. Food was good. They brew their own coffee. Rooms are clean.
Staff is bit rude. They delayed breakfast even when we told them we need it early. Also, since ours was large group, 4-5 people were left to have breakfast and they told that breakfast was over! Can’t understand how it can be over when few people haven’t had it! Later after a bit of argument they made it again and served breakfast. This delayed our overall schedule for the day and we ended up reaching Mongar at 08:00PM.
