The walk down through the suburbs of Darjeeling is a lovely insight into local life but not for the unfit or infirm because you have to walk up again. The location is lovely on a misty precipice. I was met by a smiling,wizened old monk, very keen to share his knowledge, which I appreciated. He opened the monastery and gave... More

It is downhill from the mall. Next to the CCD, a road goes down towards the Bhutia Busty. You will not see any direction board or signage. Take the road and walk down for 10 mins or more you will see the monastery on the left hand side of the hill. Being on an off beat road, crowd will not... More

It was a great experience to visit this place with monks chanting, music playing, innocence burning and child monks playing cricket!

Being quite a way down from the central Chowrasta and not being sign posted makes the Bhutia Busty Gompa Monastery difficult to find, but if you do get lost, don’t hesitate to ask one of the friendly locals and no doubt they’ll point you in the right direction! The benefit of it being off the beaten track means you’re likely... More

I had some difficulty making my way to Bhutia Busty Gompa, directed by villagers through steep short-cuts, followed by troops of monkeys. The temple is quiet and contemplative, and away from the crowds. The "short-cut" walk was also wonderful, through small neighborhoods and on the back side of the mountain facing the Himalayas.

Very old Gompa(monastery). The monastery is not too big,but adding up in your sightseeing spots would be a good choice.
