Buddhist Heritage Tour of Tang Valley

Silence reigns. Isolation envelopes. Bhutan enchants. 

Meet monks at pre-eminent religious centers, wander through striking hillside villages, and enjoy special permission to enter a 16th century ancestral palace. 

Prayer flags flutter in a granite gorge and your guide explains the local legend, of Pema Lingpa diving into the Membartsho (burning lake) to pull out terma, Buddhist teachings hidden for future generations. 

In one sense it’s religious mythology, but it feels poignantly real when you explore the Tang Valley. This travel moment finds the point where fable morphs into reality, on one of the most extravagant landscapes on earth.
