Temples and sights beyond Takstang

Ugyen Tsemo, located on the top of the cliff of tigers nest's monastery. It is about 200m above Taktsang and it takes another one hour to get there. Ugyen refers to Takstang and Tsemo means 'the top' or 'the head'. The temple was originally built in 1508 and restored recently in 1958. It contains some beautiful frescoes of Guru Padmakara and his followers. The view Ugyen Tsemo is astoundingly beautiful. A day excursion to higher ridge of Bumdra can be done from here. In Bumdra there are several retreat families.
