Lonely Planet review

This restored three-storey, rammed-earth and timber building replicates a traditional farmhouse and is furnished as it would have been about a century ago. A guided tour of this almost-living museum is included in the admission and provides an interesting glimpse into rural Bhutanese life. Details that jump out include the antique noodle press, the leopardskin bags and Brokpa yak-hair 'spider' hats. The restaurant here serves Bhutanese lunches (Nu 250).
