Chumphu Ney Neykor

The Paro Chumphu Nye (sacred place) is a new pilgrimage package. It is located northeast of Paro valley. It was blessed and left as a sacred place with many hidden treasures by the great Buddhist master, Guru Rinpoche.

Later, the head abbot of Bhutan discovered this Nye and built a monastery. The statue of Dorje Phagmo (Vajra Varahi) standing in the air is the main statue and there are numerous sacred sites to explore around this sacred place.
