Day treks from Thimphu
If you want a long trek, then opt for the Phadjodhing and Pumola Trek which takes about 6-8 hours, heading up the mountainside behind Thimphu visiting Choekhortse Goemba, the Phadjodhing Temples, Pumola Monastery and the Takin Preserve en route. A shorter version is to just head to Wangditse Goemba which takes about 2-3 hours in total. The Hermit Hike takes you to Tango Monastery, taking about 4-6 hours. Another trek takes you to Cheri Monastery, a 1-2 hour round trip.
