The statue is a major pilgrimage center and a focal point for Buddhists all over the world to practice, meditate and retreat. Moreover, the construction of statue was intended to bestow blessings, universal peace and happiness onto the world.
Your Bhutanese tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and drive up the mountains towards the gigantic Buddha Dordenma. Overlooking the Thimphu valley, this massive Buddha statue houses over one hundred thousand smaller statues, each of which like the Buddha Dordenam itself, is made of bronze and gold. There are numerous nature trails of various lengths and durations around the statue. Your tour guide will ensure that you enjoy the walk through beautiful meadows of pine trees and rhododendron flowers with even more beautiful birds singing overhead. There are campsites with toilet facilities, various picnic spots, canopies and benches placed at regular points throughout the trails.
