After breakfast and farewells we hike back down to the suspension bridge to meet our cars and drive back to Jakar—we will arrive at Yu Gharling Resort for lunch. After lunch and a hot shower we spend our second afternoon to take in all the sights of the Bhumthang Valley, including touring Jakar Dzong, numerous temples and monasteries, and the beer/cheese factory.

Overnight: Yu Gharling Resort, pick up laundry.

Throughout Bhutan, in high mountain passes and lowland fields, prayer flags flutter in the wind to send a steady stream of mantras to the deities. These woodblock prints are prayers for peace and harmony, long life and good fortune for the person who erects the flags.  As the wind passes over the surface of the flags the air is sweetened and purified to benefit all sentient beings in the area.
