Bumthang Bushman Trail
The Bumthang Bushman Trail has been introduced as a biking trail and is a pleasant and fairly easy hike. The hike starts from Kharchu Dratshang junction on a farm road for half an hour through the pasture land. The path then traverses through the pine forest to the hilltop from where we can have a good view of Chamkhar valley. There is a very good open path at the top of the hill with a beautiful meadow to have your snacks. After a short break, continue the walk through the pine forest and when you are about to reach the end of the trail, you can see the construction of Zangdopelri (Paradise of Ugyen Guru Rimpoche) at Dungmithang and can also view the Pemacholling Nunnery. At the end of the hike, you can visit the Bebzur Chukpoi Mei (House of the novelty of Bebzur), which has been turned into a Museum. Traditional Bumthap lunch can be enjoyed at the Museum. Advance booking will have to be made for the arrangement of the lunch. Another option is to have your picnic lunch at the Pemacholling Nunnery, which is another 10-minute walk from the Museum. After lunch, if you still feel like more walk, you can continue walking on a farm road to Mebartsho, The Burning Lake. Otherwise, your car will be waiting at the end of the trail to take you to the museum, Pemacholing Nunnery and the Mebartsho before driving back to the lodge.
