Cheri Monastery – Half day hike
Discover the beauty of Bhutan’s countryside as you hike towards the 17th century Cheri Monastery, an important site for meditation and a serene and tranquil destination.
Taking around 45-minutes, this scenic walk begins by crossing a picturesque covered bridge and winds through lush forests and up steep paths, passing deer and mountain goats as they cling to the hillsides. Built by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal in 1620, the Cheri Monastery holds a silver chorten, said to hold the ashes for Zhabdrung’s father. Today it is an important place for meditation retreats, with 30 monks studying here for three years, three months and three days.
