Bumthang


Patchworks of rural farmlands form a splendid tapestry in the valleys of Bumthang. Forested hills meet the valley floor, offering a leafy landscape for exploring the surrounding natural environment. Look out for Burning Lake, a quiet riverside spot offering an ideal opportunity to sit and meditate. Bumthang is made up of four valleys: Ura, Chumey, Tang and Choekhor, each with its own dialect. Ancient temples and monasteries abound in this beautiful environment. Visit Jambay Lhakhang, one of the 108 monasteries built by Tibetan King Gampo to subdue evil spirits in the Himalayan region. Other sights include the Kurje Lhakhang monastery and the local brewery.
