  • Its a heavenly feeling. Monastic school. Great hospital. Short hikes around. Great view towards beautiful Thimphu valley
  • What a wonderful place, I visited there with my friend and it took around an hour to reach the monastery. It was very very beautiful and the view from there was wonderful. I strongly recommend the people who like trekking, can surely visit this place, it's not very far from Thimphu. There people are so good they treat you very well. I strongly recommend this place.
