Introduction:
Chim-puk Hermitage is a warren of caves that was once a retreat for Guru Rinpoche, located northeast of Samye. Out of the monastery, there’s a path leading east through some fields. The path crosses through desert-like territory for a couple of hours before ascending into the surprisingly lush area where the caves are found. It is a popular day hike for travelers spending a few days at Samye.
