Cheri Gompa, Thimphu Overview

Bhutan's first-ever monastery, Cheri Gompa was founded in 1620 by Zhabrung Ngawang Namgyal. An hour-long hike to Cheri Gompa's topmost part greets you with a picturesque view of lush valleys and green forests. The trail takes you through Tango Monastery, crossing the bridge over Wang chhu which then leads you to Cheri Goemba. A significant attraction of the Goemba is a silver chorten which holds the ashes of Zhabrung's father. Apart from this, it's a meditation retreat so make sure you don't distract anyone who's there.
