Tango Monastery

12kms north from Thimphu and then a 1hr uphill walk through beautiful mountain rainforest we reach the impressive Tango Monastery.  

It was originally established in the 12th century. The present temple was built in the 15th century by Bhutan's renowned "Divine Madman" Lama Kunley Drukpa.


The interior is full of beautiful architecture, design and paintings.


We were fortunate enough to be invited into one of the monks rooms for tea and biscuits.  This is one of the views from his room
