The sanctuary is at the base and up the slopes of a lush green hill, making a visit to the...More
Takin preserve was very average . Could see only very few takins in the open. Fee of rs 100 looks very high as the facilities are very poor.walks ways are rocky and slippery. Toilet facilities inside very poorly maintained.

Agree with previous replies, rarely spotted in the wild and only in remote areas. Getting to Bumthang was a hairy enough journey, but travelling further north in the hope of an unlikely encounter will be even worse, and most likely a wasted trip.
