About Bumthang

Legends and myths prevail, buried in the hallowed grounds of Choekhor, also familiar as Bumthang, and on these foundations abound ancient Buddhist temples and monasteries or lhakhangs and chortens, as the traveler learns when he leaves the world behind and reaches Bumthang. 

It is believed that the place still carries the memory of its first kings and the great Buddhist master who once meditated there. The air is suffused with spirituality and an aura of peace engulfs the entire valley.
