Prayers flags and sacred edifices are everywhere.
Docho La Pass between Timphu and Punakha offers spectacular views of the Himalayas.
At lower altitude, the Punakha Dzong is arguably the most beautiful in the country.
The Dzong is gorgeous, but many other buildings are as well.
Every moment was a delight: for instance spending a few evenings in an old farm house turned into a beautiful hotel near Punakha or walking in the woods near Gangtey.
The environment is sacred in Bhutan, both flora and fauna. The Black Necked Cranes’ annual visit in Gangtey is a celebrated event.
The natural and human worlds blend together. It truly feels like beyond the Sky and the Earth between Gangtey and Bumthang.
Everything belongs: even monastic laundry or a cat in a window appear to naturally blend in.
As if born out of the rock on the tall cliffs 3,000 feet above the valley floor, the Tiger’s Nest is the most sacred building in the country.
Bhutan is often called the Magical Kingdom in the Himalayas. It is hard to leave.
