The Swiss Guesthouse was the first Guesthouse in Bumthang. It is situated at Karsumphe, a historical place with a small, traditional farmhouse, which was once the residence of the famous Karsumphe Angye, the older sister of the first King of Bhutan. The old house served as the headquarters of the Dairy and Forestry Project in the seventies, with office and residence for the Project Manager. Because in those days, there were quite a few Swiss Nationals working in the project who met frequently at Karsumphe, the actual name Karsumphe Guesthouse slowly disappeared and the guests named it just Swiss Guesthouse. With the coming up of tourism, a real Guesthouse was constructed and the old house dismantled and shifted behind the new building complex. Some walls, were reused and are still visible today in the terrace. The new Building harbours the Kitchen and the Restaurant on the ground floor.
