  • My favorite monastery in Bhutan. Just 30 minutes drive from Themphu and then hike for around 45 minutes. The place is very spiritual and the view from top is priceless.
  • A historical monument associated with Zhabdrung Rinpoche. It was here that Zhabdrung has assumed the name of Thuchen Dudjom Dorje to revert back the sorcery of trantikas of Tsang. Chagri is also a place where Khedrup Lhawang Lodroe composed astrological book of Palden Drukpa.
