Welcome to Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon. Touching down at Paro International Airport, you will be greeted by your guide upon exiting the arrival hall. After driving to Thimphu for our hotel check-in, you’ll have a first taste of Bhutanese cuisine at a local restaurant. A short photography orientation on Bhutan follows before we begin our exploration of the capital. The day’s subjects include the very traditional Centenary Farmers Market, and the Thimphu Dzong – a castle-fortress that is the country’s seat of power. In the evening we will take a look at our images for the first or our nightly photography discussions.
The beautiful valley of Paro is home to many of Bhutan’s old monasteries and temples. The country’s only Airport is in Paro. The valley is also home to mount Chomolhari (7,300 meters) situated at the northern end of the valley whose glacier water forms the Pachu flowing through the valley.
Are you ready? We will be making the hike up to one of the key highlights in Bhutan today! Tiger’s Nest aka Taktsang Monastery
