Samtengang Winter Trekking Venture into a world that will touch your heart and soul – a land of myths, legends and traditions which are as vital and alive today as when they originated.
Thickly forested valleys, snow-capped mountains, colorful prayer flags fluttering in the breeze, maroon robed monks and architecture from another age. This is Bhutan, a kingdom that has long maintained its independence and isolation from the outside world and so preserved a fascinating Himalayan culture and tradition. This Samtengang Winter Trekking is a best way to explore Bhutan & its local culture.

Punakha Dzong is next in our list. It was strategically built by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal in 1637 at the junction of Pho Chhu (Male River) and Mo Chhu (Female River). It played an important role in Bhutan’s history and serve as the religious and administrative center of the region. Punakha Dzong is also the winter residence of Bhutan’s spiritual leader, the Head Abbot and the Central Monastic Body.
Finally, after a short climb up the ridge with chorten some prayer flags appear as the mark of today’s destination. At this point we can see the village with several big houses and a camp site of Limukha. Visit the village and move behind for overnight stay in the tent.
Taktsang is the most famous Bhutanese Monastery. It is believed that Guru Rinpoche arrived on the back of the tigress and meditated at this monastery. Therefore, it is also called “Tiger’s Nest”. The round trip excursion of monastery takes almost 5 hours and we return back to Paro town. En route visit the Kyichu Lhakhang which is one of the oldest and most scared shrines of the Kingdom.
