Why Travel Bhutan With Truly Bhutan

Dargay Goemba

This Dargay Goemba was built in the spot where Divine Madman Drukpa Kuenley first met Ashi Genzo who was renowned for her beauty. When it was first constructed the monastery was a simple Drubdey or meditation center. Lam Drukpa Kuenley is widely considered to be Bhutan’s favorite and most iconic saint due to his unorthodox method of teaching through ribald humor.

With its diverse climates and rich natural resources, Wangdue Dzongkhag is home to many rare and exotic animals like Red Pandas, Tigers, and Leopards. There are also large numbers of rare birds such as the Black Necked Crane, White-Bellied Heron, and Spotted Eagle.
