In Bhumtang we were lucky to stay directly on the grounds of Wangdcholing palace, previously home of the royal family and now handed over to the monks. In the afternoon, we drank safflower tea and practiced traditional archery with the locals in the palace’s backyard. In the evening, we either sat near a bonefire to watch rehearsal dances for the Tsechu or listened to monks chanting prayers and playing their sacred instruments.

The following days were spent hiking in the wilderness and visiting many more temples and monasteries.
