Is it possible and/or recommended that we hike to this? Or is it better to take public transportation?
i should say that you could do small hike with your guide from flyover bridge to Buddha point if you wish it will take at less 1.5 hr and if you take taxi or your car it will take 20 mint from town .so decision is yours .
Taxi will be a better option.
Taking a taxi would be a better option but if you are keen on hiking, there is a trail which you can explore-once you reach the Buddha Dordenma
Don't hike, too far. Take a cab would be my recommendation.
Agree with previous answers, too far to hike, better to take a taxi, but definitely worth a visit.
Hiking won't be a good choose, better to take a taxi i think.
It's quite a trek from Thimpu centre, definitely recommend a taxi to get there
It is a little distance from the centre of Thimpu - a short taxi there (or go with your guide if you have one) is best.
Drive to the Buddha it takes about half an hour and once there you can have a lot of time to look around and enjoy the views. The place is not finished and a lot work is still going on.
