Chodphu Nunnery is perched on a hill top in Pemagatshel, East Bhutan. If it is not rainy season, the view from here is breath-taking! During monsoon and rain in general it might be difficult to get there. The nunnery is really remote and tourists usually do not visit there so if you have time to do it, you will encounter a bit of the past. We from Bhutan Homestay want to support the nuns and hence facilitate a visit if it is possible. Nuns in Bhutan are not always as visible as their male counterparts and it is in our interest to nurture women who choose a spiritual path as much as possible. This place is peaceful, stunningly beautiful and you will certainly never forget this glimpse into the daily life of Buddhist practitioners!
