Bumthang

 

   This lovely valley is the religious heartland of the nation and home to some of its oldest Buddhist temples and monasteries. Tales of Guru Padmasambhava and the tertons (religious treasure-discoverers) still linger in this sacred region.

   Places you must see when you are in Bumthang:
   • Jambey Lhakhang
   • Kurje Lhakhang
   • Tamshing Lhakhang
   • Jakar Dzong
