      ... temple but in this case, it was at the top of two flights of stairs instead of ground level. The monks were in there praying and were being served lunch. They offered for me to have lunch with them but we had a packed lunch from the hotel so we regretfully declined. As we exited the fortress, we went down to watch the archery game. Since they need 130 metres to play, they actually shoot across the road here and ...

      ... side on it. Thank goodness we passed very few vehicles as it would have made the journey that much longer as you had to wait to pass one another. As we drove we passed over the second highest drivable pass in Bhutan, Thrumshingla pass, at 3700 metres. We also passed two waterfalls.

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