The Bumdra Experience

Combine a hike and a camp at Bumdra in the mystic and least visited areas above Taktsang, numerous old monasteries, hermit sites, and great views of mountain ranges in the north and the Paro valley below. The last time we were there- it was a great feeling to be off the normal tourist route, with nature, serenity, and the few monks doing their 3 year retreats, whom we do not get to meet. Some of the temples were timeless, without the hassles of caretakers getting worried for entrance permits; we could visit at leisure these places that seem to have been forgotten by the mainstream valley visitors.
