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
From the bridge at the river it is about 40 minutes (relax) uphill walk to the Monastery. The path is from sand and stones, so during the raining season some of the stones can be slippery, so watch out. The scenery is nice, lot of...More
After nearly a trek of and and half hour passing through colorful Bhutanese villages reached this Gompa a awe inspiring view from here awaiting. As good as Tigers nest with less effort and less crowd.Please visit less known but worth.
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
If I remember correctly, yes there were toilet facilities. One thing to remember in Bhutan: quite often you have to pay for the use of the rest room - no exceptions. This was apparent in Tiger's Nest Monastery. You are asked... More
If I remember correctly, yes there were toilet facilities. One thing to remember in Bhutan: quite often you have to pay for the use of the rest room - no exceptions. This was apparent in Tiger's Nest Monastery. You are asked to hand in your bags before you start your visit (which usually includes your purse), at the end of the visit you walk past the rest rooms and they will not let you in unless you pay. So, keep small change with you.
