Bokar Tours strongly believes that the environment and culture are a fundamental resource for the economy to grow and thrive. This agency thus lives up to the promising mandate for conservation and sustainable natural resource management.

This sustainable development of the industry requires partnership, counterpart, and cooperation within the industry, between industries and governments, and among tourists and local people. Local input and involvement play a crucial role in the long-term and sustainability of the tourism industry. Most importantly, if local residents and communities are part of the travel agencies, they will reap the benefits of tourism while trekking and hiking. This will ultimately achieve the goals of local communities and government in boosting economic growth.
Putting visitors at the heart, this agent takes the shared responsibility in informing to avoid the travel and tour agencies that are not registered Bhutanese tour operators. These agencies are mainly associated with local Bhutan tour companies with the aim of earning commissions.

It makes a fascinating tourist spot in Bhutan with a unique location. Currently, this ancient monastery has been looked after by the Yalang community.
The history dates back to the 12th century, when a Tibetan saint Khedrup Kuenga Drakp, who was a descendant of Tertoen Pema Lingpa (Treasure revealers), visited the village of Yalang. Legendary, it believes that the two white vultures appeared and circled the hilltop where the monastery is located.
Following this significant of a good omen, the hilltop was named Goe Kar (White vulture). Thereafter, a monastery was eventually built at a significant location. Goe Kar is today pronounced as Bokar by the people of Yalang village in keeping with the nuances of the local dialect.
