Bhutan in Pictures
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.
Pictures that will make you want to travel to Bhutan right now!
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.
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.
Picturesque villages between fertile Himalayan mountain valleys make this country very beautiful.
Buddhist monasteries have lots of intricate artwork to depict various visual symbolism associated with the religion.
I am very shy when it comes to photographing people, but I do enjoy taking pictures of locals as they go through their routines.
