The Talo Monastery rests beautifully on a mountain top at an elevation of 2,800 meters above sea level in Punakha. It approximately takes a one-hour drive from Punakha valley to reach here. Talo monastery is the seat of the successive reincarnation of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. The place has warm energy with few hermitages spread around. These hermits or the Yogis go in for years of closed retreat from the outside world.
