Chhume Valley

The Chhume Valley is another of the main valleys of the Bumthang Valley, and is ideal if you like seeing remote Buddhists temples and monasteries and less for the views. You walk up to the pass above Tharpaling at 3,600m and you then walk down the other side, seeing points of interest along the way including Lamey Goemba, Zhambhala Lhakhang and Choejedrak (one of the four holy cliffs). The walk and drive back takes about 4-5 hours.
