Bumdra Excursion Tour

Combine a hike and camp at Ugyen Tshemo, and Bumdra village via Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest Monastery), and hiking along a level ridge/ spur towards Paro valley in the south. This could be a two night camp 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. You might have heard of sacred Bumdra (Bum meaning one hundred thousand, dra could have meant tra or hair); people here say that the monasteries- that are no almost in ruins due to little care from the state, and less visitors and subsequent contributions for maintenance- were initially built using hair from one hundred thousand Khandros/Dhakinis.
