There is only one road that traverses Bhutan from east to west. Therefore, we had to back track today the way we came a few days ago. The drive again was 6.5 hours not including lunch and bathroom stops. The drive had beautiful scenery as it was sunny and clear most of the way. At one point we ran into a tiny bit of snow on the side of the ride. Considering that it wasn't there two days ago ...
... in their living rooms.The last stop was another Fort equally as impressive as the last. Situated at the point where the Pho Chu (male) and Mo Chu (female) rivers unite and surrounded by Jacarandas in full bloom it made quite a statement. The temple inside one of the most interesting I have ever wandered through.... probably because I received more information on Buddha including an interpretation of past and future Buddha's. Apparently it isn't that ...
... out the image of huge yaks wandering loose near our tent. I have often fallen asleep thinking about a West Briton headline reporting that two Cornish tourists had come to a sticky end in a spectacular fashion abroad, I'm a bit of a worrier or rather I like to think my forward thinking helps to prevent accidents, but tonight, being trampled by yaks or being drained of all blood by a giant leech was beyond my imagination, I was too tired too care.
... be… then he said he thought it would be another 30 - 40 minutes so I told myself that was the equivalent of a spinning class and just go for it! I was striding along the trail when in just 10 minutes, we were suddenly at camp! There was our little orange tent. We whooped for joy! We had walked for 9 1/2 hours, burnt 1,561 calories and taken 33,148 steps to reach what was to be a lovely sheltered and peaceful camp right by the river. Sleep came easily.
... of toasts and sincere thanks from Thinley who was profuse in thanking us for visiting his country. It was a lovely evening and ended with directions for us all as to the schedule for tomorrow and everyones exit strategy. Devendra had to leave at 4 am to get to the airport and return to his home in Nepal, where he would pick up another group from WT the next day. It was a lovely day and quite memorable as a last day in Bhutan.
