Paro - Bumdrak Monastery
The adventure begins with an early morning drive up to the Sang Choekor Buddhist College for two hours of hike. The trail undulates before the last steep section up to the pretty temple which offers commanding views south over Paro and northwards to the snow-capped Himalayas. Our home for the night is tucked away just under Bumdra Monastery (Cave of a Thousand Prayers) and offers unimpeded views of the Himalayan range.
After lunch we can visit the monastery (if it is occupied) and also climb the peak to the north (about 4000 m) for even better views, returning in time for a well earned dinner.
Bumdrak Monastery - Paro
After breakfast we will decent back to zangto Pelri (Heaven on Earth) from which you can peer over the edge rooftops of Taktshang Monastery. Following a steep descent to a waterfall then up some steps and you’ll reach the Tiger’s Nest itself.
Later afternoon we will begin the final descent of about 45 minutes to Paro Valley floor to reach our vehicle from where you will be transferred by road to your overnight accommodation.
