It is an approximately 5km hike to the Phajoding with the trail following a ridge before climbing up another mountain. Needless to say, it affords a great view of the receding Thimphu city and valley.
20% of each tour is offered to the monastery for its renovation and for the basic comforts of the young monks there. You can carry along offerings in either cash or kind (new or used clothes, edibles, books, pens, pencils, storybooks et cetera).
