Jakar Tourism & Travel Guide

Lush greenery, refreshing sights and a town dipped in Buddhist culture, Jakar in Bhutan is a delight. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful escape, perhaps there is no better option than this cluster of villages. Housing numerous monasteries and places of religious importance, including Kurje Lhakhang, one of Bhutan's most sacred monasteries, Jambey Lhakhang, Tamshing Gompa and Zangtopelri Lhakhang, these places are a must visit. The monasteries represent different facets of Buddhist culture and a visit to these sites will remain with you for a long time. Do plan your itinerary after consulting the locals since there are some norms and rules that every Buddhist town usually follows. The main bazaar here is another interesting aspect of this bustling town. A visit here will give you a peek into the daily lives of the locals and also an opportunity to connect with the energy of Jakar. You can buy woollen garments, wooden items and souvenirs from the emporiums here. There are quite a few guesthouses here – though they offer everything you may need for a comfortable stay, they are far from super luxurious. The village believes in simple living and everything here represents the elements and essence of Buddhism.

Weekend Getaways from Jakar  

We chose to arrive in Lhasa by travelling on the world’s highest railway, a journey of breath-taking beauty that lasts 24 hours from the Chinese city of Xining, and crosses the Tanggula Passat 5072m. Arriving late at night, we were greeted by our guide in Lhasa with khatags, the white silk ceremonial scarf that is commonly given in Tibet as a sign of welcome. This was the first of many khatags we received. Lhasa literally means 'The abode of the gods'.
