Tango Cheri Meditation

Bhutan has many activities available for those visitors seeking a place of solace, rest, and recuperation.  Whether it’s a session of peaceful, contemplative meditation, a relaxing soak in a mineral hot spring bath or the all-natural remedies of our traditional medicine Bhutan has just what you need to revive and rejuvenate your body and spirit.

Our Tango Cheri Meditation retreats will provide you with places of respite from the cares and stress of everyday life. Many tourists from Thailand and other Buddhist countries come to Bhutan specifically for meditation and retreat tours. Additionally, most hotels also provide yoga sessions, retreats, and meditation facilities within the hotel premises.

 The traditional medicine of Bhutan is known as Sowa Rigpa and dates back to the 17th century when it first spilled from its Tibetan origins. Bhutan’s natural environment, with its exceptionally rich flora, has enabled the development of unparalleled pharmacopeia. Indigenous medicine units have been established in all 20 Dzongkhags (districts) and can provide tourists with traditional remedies for any ailments they may have.

Hot springs or Tsachu as they are locally known can be found all over the Kingdom and their medicinal properties are known to cure various ailments ranging from arthritis to body aches and even sinuses.
