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. What is scary is that this is the main road in northern Bhutan. There is no faster way to reach our destination. 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 ...

Now, where we were walking, there was ...

One of the older boys enjoyed questioning Jono about the cameras and binoculars and sat with him for a while. Jono was rewarded with a game of archery with his 'Robin Hood' bow, I however, ...

Monday, Mongar in central Bhutan

Today we drove to Khoma Village, home of some of the finest weavers in Bhutan and also the area in which our guide, Karma, was born. The road, as windy as ever, followed a river, and we passed rice fields and rock cliffs and pine forests. Needless to say, it was amazingly beautiful.

We have become semi-obsessed with the terraced rice paddies, and Larry probably has enough pictures of them to fill a camera memory card. Rice, of ...
