7 Days 6 Nights Neykor Tour: A Journey of Spiritual Immersion in Bhutan

  • Neykor

    Punakha Dzong


His Eminence Khedrupchen Rinpoche Ugyen Tenzin Thinley Lhendup (also referred to as Khedrupchen
Rinpoche) was recognized and enthroned as the Fifth successive reincarnation of Kyabgon
Khedrupchen Jigme Kundrol who was an illustrious heart son of Rigzin Jigme Lingpa.
H. E. graduated from Ngagyur Nyingma College, Dehradun, India in 2014. Even before the completion
of his studies, the Rephel Mindrol Monastery in Trongsa was offered to him by the local community.
Since then Rinpoche has been taking full responsibility of the monastery and renamed it Sangchen
Ogyen Tsuklag Monastery, recognizing its historical importance which was linked to many former
incarnations of Khedrupchen Rinpoche. He has been working tirelessly to uphold this historical
monastery founded by Monmo Tashi Khyidren (the Bhutanese Consort of Guru Rinpoche) around
1200 years ago which is now home to 25 monks who are mostly orphans and either physically and/or
mentally challenged.

Are you ready? We will be making the hike up to one of the key highlights in Bhutan today! Tiger's
Nest aka Taktsang Monastery.
Taktsang Monastery - Often called the Tiger’s Nest, perched on the cliffs, has awestruck many a
visitor. “Trip to Bhutan is never complete without climbing to Taktsang”, says one tourist. Indeed, it’s
true as the journey there fills you with spiritual bliss. For those not choosing the spiritual side, it is the
dramatic, artistically built monument that becomes a hiker’s delight. Take a trip to this dramatically
set Buddhist relic hanging from a cliff. Experience the uphill climb as you ascend more than two
thousand feet from the valley floor. A prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and temple complex
located on the cliff side of Paro Valley. According to legends, it is believed that Guru Rinpoche flew to
this location from Tibet on the back of a Tigress (his consort Yeshey Tshogyal) and meditated in one of
the caves. Guru Rinpoche performed meditation and emerged in eight manifestations, and the place
became holy, thus gaining the name Tiger's Nest. Remarks [0 hrs] - Seasonal attractions are subject to
change due to weather conditions. The sequence of itinerary is subject to change without prior
notice. If a place of visit is closed to visitors, it will be replaced with an alternative. During major
