Bumdra High Camp, Paro Bhutan
Wake up to breathtaking views from your tent over the Paro Valley, and gaze at the stars in the evening at Bumdra High Camp. Sitting in a remote meadow above the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, the camp may be basic, but the natural surroundings and stunning, impeded views of snow-capped mountains make the Camp an incredible experience.
After a challenging climb above the Tiger’s Nest, at an altitude of 3,500m and an ascent of 1,000m, guests will stay at the camp on a one night trek. An additional challenge can be added to the climb if you’re willing to hike a further 400m to the highest point, hang a prayer flag and take in some of the most captivating views in Bhutan.
The guides and porters ensure all guests are comfortable. After relaxing as the sun sets over the Haa region, simple meals are served in the dining tent. You’ll also find a bathroom tent. Hot water bottles and towels are provided. It may be a basic, traditional tented camp, however it still provides a comfortable bed and warm bedding for chilly nights.
Due to the cold climate and altitude, the accommodation is seasonal and is open from March to May and September to early November. Sleeping at a high altitude may not suit everyone, so we recommend completing the hike at the end of your trip as you will be better acclimatised. While the camp is of course extremely basic, the remarkable views and lack of crowds make it a very worthwhile experience during your time in Bhutan.
