The Path to Haa uncovers three of Bhutan’s western districts—namely Thimphu, the capital city of the kingdom; Paro, where you can marvel at the magnificent Taktsang Goemba, more famously known as Tiger’s Nest; and Haa, where the Sagala Hike is perfect for those who prefer to traverse untouched forests, open meadows and serene farmlands on foot.
A visit to Cheri Goemba, the first monastery of the Drukpa Kagyupa School of Bhuddhism, will reveal much of Bhutan’s rich Bhuddist history.
Apart from the sacred sites, you are most welcome to visit the villages and farmhouses to truly experience and connect with the Bhutanese way of life.
Observe the daily activities of a farmer and savour traditional home-cooked meals.
