Overview

Bumthang is an admirable valley where many people refer Bumthang as the “Switzerland of east” because of its spectacular open valleys, breathtaking scenery, beautiful rivers and mountains. And also the spiritual heartland of Bhutan where the entire valley is dotted with sacred temples and monasteries dating back to the 7th century.
Trekking is definitely the best way to discover the secrets of this magical valley of incomparable beauty. Like the people in the country, people of remote villages in Bumthang are warm and friendly and still live in harmony with their centuries-old traditions. On the first and third days of the trek, we follow the village trail along a trout filled river, past beautiful farmhouses and many old chortens (stupa), mani-walls, fluttering prayer flags and several 600-700 years old monasteries and temples, all bearing witness to the importance of Buddhism in the daily life of Bhutanese people. The trail winds up and down through thick forests of maple, fir, pine and rhododendron, as we cross Phephe-La pass at 3,350 meters, the highest point on this trek. We walk past the ancient fortress of Ugyen Choling, the home of one of the famous Buddhist saint and great scholar. The trek ends near Rimochen Lhakhang temple, which was founded by Guru Rinpoche (the Second Buddha) in the 8th century.
