The Detail

The camp is located just under the remote Bumdra Monastery at 3,800 metres and it takes about 4-6 hours of trekking to get there. You start Sang Choekhor after a short drive from Paro and the walking is mostly uphill. All your bags will be taken by ponies, so it is worth taking it nice and slowly, enjoying the views as you go. The camp will be set up in advance, and will feature traditional dome tents, with camp beds, proper bedding and pillows. We will also set up a bathroom tent and dining tent. A team of guides, porters and cooks will ensure it is as comfortable as possible. The views from the top are staggeringly beautiful, seeing snow-capped mountains above you. The next day, you walk down to Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest) seeing some of the temples that many people don’t see above this amazing place. Many guests plod up the main trail, but only those coming from Bumdra Camp will have this amazing and unique experience. Once you reach Tiger’s Nest, you can walk down the main trail back to Paro, or head along to Drukgyal Monastery if you want to extend your trek.
