Tucked away in the village of Jawana (which means the village beneath the cliff), about 20 min drive through a farm road from the main road near Punakha Dzong is a Bhutanese treasure called Aum Wangmo Homestay. The 5-acre farm has been in Aum Wangmo’s family for about 200 years, since her great-great-grandfather’s time. Well maintained, the farmhouse has been repaired, extended and renovated to house two modern toilets/bathrooms and five rooms to accommodate 10 tourists comfortably.
The place is located in Motithang known to be the posh residential hub of Thimphu. It is just 5 mins drive from the main town, yet away from the bustling noise of the town making it the perfect place to stay while in Thimphu. The famous Takin zoo is just about 10 mins walk from the place and for adventure seekers, there are hiking trails leading to Sangaygang and Phajoding. All other attractions such as the Buddha Point, Tashichoedzong, Craft Bazaar, etc are all within the close vicinity.
Damchoe's Home Stay is located in Langjophakha, not far from Thimphu town yet very secluded. With organic vegetable gardens, a backyard poultry farm and a small tofu processing unit, we here, provide the essence of the "see beyond the tourist trail" and the experiences of a "real home away from home". Come,stay home at Damchoe's.
