The monastery suffered a disastrous fire in April 1998, but great efforts are being made to repair the extensive damage. From the parking area it is a two hour walk, mostly through coniferous forest, up a steep path to the view point from where there are spectacular views of the monastery.
The walk to a viewpoint and small cafe takes around 2 hours each way. The route is steep in places but straightforward. Some areas of the track are exposed to the sun so make sure to wear a hat. At the cafe, you can rest and a buffet lunch will be served. From this point, there is a superb view of the cliff face and monastery. For an even better view, there is a further one hour walk up a steepish track to a point closer to the monastery.Return to your car and drive to Thimphu for 1.5 hours.
This is a lovely drive through spectacular mountain views and peaceful countryside. Thimphu is a small, charming capital city sandwiched in the heart of the Himalayas.

DAY-07. THIMPHU- Sightseeing, Drive to Paro
The capital of Bhutan is situated on west bank of the river Thimphu, (ThimphuChhu) in a wooded valley at an elevation of 2320m. Prior to 1961 Thimphu was only an insignificant village, but since the country emerged from isolation its importance has grown and it has many official buildings. The Secretariat, Kings offices and some ministries are housed in the TashichhoDzong, next to which one of the worlds highest golf courses (9 hole) has been made. With a population of not more than 100,000, Thimphu is an easy place to wander around, and will enable the visitor to appreciate the detail of Bhutanese architecture. A few miles south of the capital is Simtokha, one of the oldest complete Dzongs in the country, dating from the early 1600s, a period when Shabdrungs, the line of religious rulers originally from Tibet, ruled the country.
