General Information About tour

Ura, Chumey, Tang, and Choekhor are the four major valleys of Bumthang Dzongkhag. Choekhor, the largest of the four mountain valleys, is known as the ‘Bumthang Valley.' The valleys have been sculpted by prehistoric glaciers and are vast and gentle. Each year, a huge number of tourists visit the broad and picturesque valleys. Bumthang's name is considered to come from two places. The first is that it is named after a Bumpa, a holy water vessel with a form similar to that of the valley. Because Bum means "girl" and Thang means "flat region of ground," the Valley of Beautiful Girls is the second derivation. Buckwheat, rice, and potato farms abound in these rich valleys. Dairy farms and apple orchards are other typical sights in this area. This tranquil area is one of the most tranquil in the kingdom. In terms of historical and spiritual heritage, this dzongkhag is one of the most well-endowed. Bumthang is home to some of Bhutan's oldest and most revered temples, including Jambey Lhakhang. According to tradition, Tibetan ruler Songtsen Gampo erected this ancient temple in 659 A.D. as part of a network of 108 temples built at the same time to tame an evil demon that ruled the Himalayan area. It is Bhutan's oldest lhakhang. Many additional temples and shrines in Bumthang are worth seeing, and many of them are related to Guru Rinpoche's visit in 746 A.D.
