Bumdra Trek, the short uphill trek that brings you directly to an amazing view of the Paro valley, breathtaking sunsets over the mountains of Haa, the seldom-visited sacred sites above Taktshang Goemba and the dreamlike Tiger’s Nest itself. 800 years ago, thousands of angels known as Dakinis moved in the area leaving their footprints on the rock. The Name ‘Bumdra’ signifies one hundred thousand FootPrints left by those Dakinis.

The first day, it’s 4 hours uphill climb and on the second day downhill climb of about 3 hours. A total of about 14 kilometers will be covered during the trek. The trek will reward you with the spectacular view throughout your hike and camping in a wild is worth a call. Get yourself blessed while you visit the holy caves and view the tiger’s Nest monastery from the peak, the happiness is rewarded indeed.

Our camping arrangements during the Bumdra Trek is luxurious by all standards. We recommend you bring warm clothes as the camp is at a height of 4000 meters above the sea level.
