Meet the Monks of Gangteng Gompa

Luxury Bhutanese travel isn’t about flashy hotels. It’s the authenticity and connection with the Bhutanese, through unique encounters with families, monks and important local figures. 

Walking through Jinge Singye Wangchuck National Park you reach Gangteng Gompa, a legendary 17th century monastery with a head lama incarnated from Pema Lingpa. 

Exploring complexes like these offers an insight into a culture and identity that’s been preserved into the 21st century. This moment is a chance to share moments, exchange stories and understand a way of life that redefines notions of richness and development.
