Chimi’s house is around 100 years old and is the original family home.
Like Ugyen’s house, it is characteristic of the typical Bhutanese architecture of the area. Yak meat is dried in the loft and a bukari stove is the centre piece of the living/kitchen area and the heart of the home.
Staying at Chimi’s homestay, visitors will get the opportunity to mingle with the local villagers and sample the best in local Haa delicacies.
Chimi is the second eldest of the family. She has 2 children (Choyki and Sonam) who are now studying away from home – one in Phuentsholing and the other in Royal Thimphu College.
