Often called as mini Takstang, Dzongdrakha is a cliff-side temple complex on the western side of the Paro Valley. Four shrines make up the complex, dedicated to Drolma (Tara), Tsheringma (Goddess of Longevity), Guru Rinpoche and the Buddha of the Future, Maitreya. Local oral tradition states that when Guru Rinpoche first came to Bhutan, he came from Nepal, first landing at Drakarpo, and then Dzongdrakha before arriving at Taktshang (Tiger's Nest) farther north up the valley. Located approx 20 minute drive from Paro, these temples are built on a cliff above Bondey village but the walk is not as strenuous as Taktshang. From the road, it take only about 30 minutes walk to reach here, through forests of rhododendron and oak trees with white monkeys on it. Dzongdrakha also hosts an annual Tshechu (festival) that takes place the day before and the day after the larger Paro Tshechu held at Rinpung Dzong near the main town. During the festival at Dzongdrakha, one of the main blessings takes place when the chorten (stupa) of the past Buddha is opened so that attendees are blessed by the relic held within. The Dzongdrakha village has numerous temples and is known for most of their men being either fully ordained monks or gomchens (lay monks who don’t take vows of celibacy). Ironically it is the women who work in the fields and are the bread earners unlike in any other part of the country. Visit Farm houses in Paro Valley which offers a good glimpse into the lifestyle of a farmer, interact with them take pictures. Then drive to Kyichu Temple, one of the 108 temples built in the 7th century by the Tibetan King Songsten Gampo. The story goes that a giant demon lay across the whole area of Tibet and the Himalayas and was preventing the spread of Buddhism. To overcome her, King Songtsen Gampo decided to build 108 temples, which would be placed on all the points of her body. Of these 108 temples, 12 were built in accordance with precise plans. Thus, it happened that in about the year 638 AD the temple of Jokhang in Lhasa was built over the very heart of the demon. Evening drive up the valley to visit the historic Drukgyel Dzong which was built in the 16th century to mark the Bhutanese victory over the Tibetan invaders. Also visit the interior of Rinpung Dzong, built in 1645 to defend the valley against Tibetan invaders. The Dzong is now being used as an administration center and school for monks.

There are so many good points to talk about;a picnic lunch in a scenic paddy field, the trek to Tiger nest and the hot stone bath afterwards, the rafting and thevisits to the monasteries. It would be wrong if I said that I wasn't a bit hesitant to handover my money to someone I had never met. I am wary of tour agents who promise the world because they never deliver. But this was a very different experience. They delivered all that they promised and more. Our guide Mr MukeshBiswa catered to all our demands ( some very unreasonable) From the time he picked us up at the airport with a placard saying ' Saptrishi' to the time he took a detour for some last minute shopping , he made it all possible. We called him a genie...a name he truly deserved. I strongly recommend Ad Tours and Travels for their professionalism and passion. We were a group of seven middle aged women meeting for a reunion so you can understand how difficult a task they had at hand. But they achieved the impossible.. Read more
