Spectacular Scenery

... The lush forest, bright sun, and endless blue sky along the way made it an even more spectacular drive. We stopped at one point and walked across a suspension bridge that crossed the river. On the rock cliff beside the bridge we saw some bee hives. They were by far the largest I've ever seen and were black in colour. When we arrived in Lhuentsi we went to the Dzong built in 1658 which is situated on a cliff. We ...

Drive Day

Well the 200 kilometre journey today took us six and a half hours, not including a lunch stop. The road swerves and weaves around the mountains again giving us spectacular views of the valleys below.

Some parts of the road remind me of the back country roads in Ontario with trees overhanging it. On most of the road you could barely fit two vehicles ...

... allowed a go much to my disappointment because I'm a woman, Archery is strictly a men only game in Bhutan.

Aside from a bit of photography, the only other activity was to wash a couple of shirts in the stream. The water from the mountains is channelled through a piece of bamboo and I'd watched the locals wash their cooking pots, socks and teeth their earlier so waited for a washing window and hung our shirts to dry in the trees.
