Travel to Bumthang

BUMTHANG - THE SPIRITUAL CENTRE OF BHUTAN

Bumthang is one among the twenty districts that together make up the country of Bhutan. Situated in the central premises, it shares similar climactic features with Punakha. The warm and sunny temperature sees the ample growth of apples, rice & buckwheat. Bumthang is an ideal place to step into for religious trips since Buddhism spread all over Bhutan from the heart of Bumthang. When a local king of Bumthang was agitated by the wrongdoings of a local demon, he invited Guru Rinpoche from India to help ward off the spirit. After his success, the king played a crucial role in promoting Buddhism all over the region & patronizing the immigrant saint.
