Homestay

Breakfast, Dinner

Early morning explore Lobesa village and set off to an easy hike to the Chimi Lhakhang temple. Chimi Lhakhang is also known as the ‘Temple of Fertility’. The temple is dedicated to Lama Drukpa Kunley, fondly known as ‘Divine Madman’ because of his non-conventional and ‘outrageous’ style of teaching. He was a social critic and openly challenged the hypocrisy of the established orders. Thus, the use of his Phallus (Penis) as a ‘flaming thunderbolt’ weapon symbolizes the discomfort that society experiences while facing the truth. Devotees take blessings from the wooden effigy of the lama’s thunderbolt, preserved in the lhakhang. Couples also come to the temple before the birth of baby to select their names while newborns are brought by parents for blessings from Lama. To get to the temple, you need to pass through Lobesa village. Lobesa village offers a glimpse of the rural Bhutan as you come across the farms and houses with unique Bhutanese architecture (huge white walls with wood carving on doors, windows and roof). And yes, Phallus (Penis) is very comfortably painted on almost every second house as you walk along.
After Lunch we drive to Punakha Dzong, it is undoubtedly the most beautiful and charming Dzong in Bhutan, standing tall right at the confluence of two rivers Pho Chhu (Father River) and Mo Chhu (Mother River). You will be completely mesmerized with this Dzong, especially in spring when it is enveloped by lilac coloured Jacaranda flowers spread against the white washed towering walls. The Dzong from the inside is equally beautiful with a large courtyard lined with administrative buildings on 3 sides and a huge temple at the front. Wooden carving of roof and windows against huge whitewashed walls adds to the charm of this beautiful edifice. Towards the end is the ‘hundred pillar’ assembly hall temple with massive gold statues of Lord Buddha, Guru Rinpoche and Divine Madman. You would love to sit in the temple and inhale the calmness deep within you.


Day 5
Explore Phobhjikha Valley

After an early breakfast we drive to Phobjikha valley. Gangtey or Phobjikha at an average altitude of 3,000 m is a wide and beautiful valley, designated as conservation zone within the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park (formerly known as Black Mountains National Park). It is a natural habitat for wildlife, including nesting grounds for endangered black-necked cranes that migrate from Central Asia in the winter (late October and stay till March). Phobjikha valley is famous for the Gangtey Gompa and the spotting of the elusive black necked crane. A wide glacial valley with a central stream meandering through the open grasslands, Phobjikha is the perfect place to feel lost in the beauty of the himalayas.
We spend the day exploring the beautiful valley and visiting the crane centre to know more about these magnificent birds.
