Village Walk

Village Walk

After breakfast, between 830 am and 9 am, begin your day by walking through the lower village of Haatoe and continue on down  to the Haa Chhu (river) before crossing a quaint wooden bridge .  From here the walk to the Jamte Gompa is a gradual ascent of not more than 1.5 hours through pristine forest which later opens up to the village.  Visit the 300 year old plus monastery, which is presently undergoing renovation work due to earthquake damage. This is followed by a visit to a local farmers house for a cup of tea and 'zau' .  The views  of the southern Haa valley can be enjoyed best from here. After the tea break we will take a seldom used animal track that connects onto to the main trail after about half an hour and continue on to the Chumpa bridge to stop for a picnic lunch beside the river. After lunch we walk slowly through the beautiful Chuma village taking time to see the villagers at work and even have  some interaction .  Walking along the village path we continue on to our lodge in time for high tea.  For those who are interested in looking around the Lechuna village our local guide can accompany them.  The option of having a hot stone bath is open and can be arranged for before or after dinner. .
