Bhutan is a very colourful country. Buddhist architecture, monasteries and cities spread around high ranges of the eastern Himalayas provide for lots of photo opportunities. I travelled here with a basic point and shoot camera (Canon Powershot SX100) and was fortunate to have mostly clear skies.

Monasteries of Bhutan

Bhutan is a deeply religious country and there are numerous Buddhist temples. From small shrines (Stupa and Chhorten) to massive fort-monastries (Dzong), there are lots of old and beautiful temples to see.


Cities, villages and towns

A visual tour of Thimphu (the capital city), Paro, and smaller towns of Punakha, Wangdue, Khuruthang, Phuentsholing. The bazars and bus stations are smaller, but can get busy quickly.

Stunning landscapes

Picturesque villages between fertile Himalayan mountain valleys make this country very beautiful.


Murals and artwork in temples

Buddhist monasteries have lots of intricate artwork to depict various visual symbolism associated with the religion.


People

I am very shy when it comes to photographing people, but I do enjoy taking pictures of locals as they go through their routines.
