Chumphu Nye is located on a hilltop and completely isolated from the town. It may take about 7 to 8 hours to hike back and forth and may have to cover about 14Km. The walk is nurturing. The best part about the temple is witnessing a floating statue of Vajra Dakini. She is literally floating above the ground.
This statue is highly revered and ancient. It’s believed that the Goddess Dorji Phamo flew from Tibet and stayed in the posture where the statue is now. She is a life size statue and believe it or not, her one leg is crossed at the knees and the other is standing but does not touch the ground.
Along the way you will also come across many caves where Guru Rinpoche , Khandom Yeshey Tshokey and Khandro Mendharawa were supposed to have meditated. The walk is flat with minimal gradient until the last section of the trail at a bridge located at the base of the hill on which Chumphu sits.
