Bumthang Guide

Bumthang is an area unlike any other. It is a region made up of four smaller valleys: Tang, Ura, Choekhor and Chumey. The deep-rooted religious history of the region has been home to some important Buddhist figures. For example, the great Buddhist teacher Pema Linga lived here. Ancient glaciers in the area have led to broad, beautiful valleys that attract many of tourists. The verdant valleys are filled with crops of staples like buckwheat, rice, and potatoes, and there are also many apple orchards and dairy farms. Some of Bhutan's most important temples can be found in Bumthang, and one notable example is Jambey Lhakhang, which is the oldest temple in Bhutan. Legend states that this ancient temple was built in 659 by King Songtsen Gampo of Tibet. Its purpose was to ward off an evil demoness of the Himalayan Mountains, and it was one of the 108 temples built at the same time for this purpose.
