Bhutan: An Adventure Across the Last Himalayan Kingdom
Visiting the elusive #Bhutan was on my travel #bucketlist, so I made the most of it with a week-long guided tour. With such amazing scenery and interesting #culture, I got to really use my photography skills. Some highlights were the capital city of Thimphu, the Tiger's Nest, the monks, and meeting the local children.
Bhutan has always been a mysterious country in my eyes. I only know a handful of travelers who have visited the country and it doesn’t often make the news or any travel lists. It is a small country in the Himalayas, best known for the Tiger’s Nest, and being difficult destination to reach for tourists.
Visiting Bhutan was one of my travel goals I set two years ago and a country I had been wanting to visit for much longer.
I knew I was flying into a magical place the moment our plane cruised past the summit of Mt. Everest and our pilot banked a hard left between the Himalayan peaks.

The airport in Paro, Bhutan set the tone for our adventure across Bhutan. The traditional design of the buildings resembled those in the city of Paro. The city has done a great job maintaining the cultural architecture of the past while welcoming modern amenities.
Yeoong Tours & Travel greeted us the airport and our journey across Bhutan had begun. These are my favorite photos from one of my favorite countries in the world.

The first of many Dzongs in Bhutan was the Rinpung Dzong, a fortress and monastery overlooking the town of Paro and the valley below.
The construction of the worlds largest Buddha statue in Thimphu, Bhutan.
The view of Thimphu, Bhutan. Thimphu is the capital city of Bhutan and more modern than Paro.
On a visit to a Bhutanese trade school we observed students developing skills in many professions. The level of detail that goes into these paintings is incredible.
I am convinced we had the best guides in Bhutan. They were knowledgeable and always up for having a good time in any situation.
This is my favorite photo from the trip and one of my favorites of all time.
Archery is huge in Bhutan and these guys have some serious skill.
Every day in Bhutan there was something new and amazing to see. We were the only tourists at this Dzong and had the chance to sit in on prayers with the Buddhist monks.
My first glimpse of the Tiger’s Nest. This was the reason I wanted to visit Bhutan. We were told it takes some people up to 4 hours to reach the top but most could do it in 2-2.5 hours. We were so excited we were to the top in 1 hour and had the entire place to ourselves.
There is no question I will return to Bhutan. I made great friends and had a awesome experience.
