Bhutan Times - - Home -

Her Majesty the Queen Mother Tsh­er­ing Yang­don Wangchuck led a spon­sored walk to help raise funds for the Bhutan Nuns Foun­da­tion, of which Her Majesty is the Royal Pa­tron. The 48 km-walk be­gan at Tam­che Monastery at 4 am and ended at Lhai Ding (Hedey) on Sun­day via Kichu Monastery. Pro­ceeds from the walk will ben­e­fit fu­ture BNF projects and in­clude im­prov­ing the liv­ing quarters of the nuns and con­struc­tion of the train­ing and re­treat cen­ter, for the ben­e­fit of all Bhutanese nuns through­out the coun­try.

It is a tra­di­tional belief that vis­it­ing all three sites on foot in one day will gain a pilgrim ex­cep­tional merit.
