Located just to the east of the centre of Bhutan, Bumthang is the general name given to a complex of four valleys - Chumey, Choekhor, Tang and Ura - with altitudes varying from 2,600 to 4,000 metres. The beauty of the area is renowned with rich and fertile high lands covered mostly in pine are known for their buckwheat and apple production, sturdy stone houses, and plethora of monasteries. It is the ideal place for walking due to the broad U-shaped valleys and sloping mountains. Being one of the coldest parts of the country, snow is a frequent sight in winter.
