Photography in Bhutan

Bhutan is a 4,000-year-old Himalayan enigma that has only recently if at all, opened itself up to the rest of the world. Bhutanese are one of only a few peoples on the planet who have never been conquered and have always fought for their independence. The Land of the Thunder Dragon has remained high on the list of the most unusual and pristine photographic sites on the planet due to its independence and remoteness. Also, the folks are so friendly and hospitable.

Festival time is one the best time to do photography. Along the way, visit gigantic fortress monasteries (dzongs) housing up to a thousand monks, as well as monasteries and nunneries with rich and unusual interiors that are off the beaten path. To witness old Buddhist murals, massive prayer wheels, picture book pastoral settings with Himalayan backdrops, and, hopefully, and works in progress.

Also, Bhutan is a beautiful place with rugged mountains and enchanting valleys, flowing rivers and colorful lakes, tall shade trees, and magnificent flowers, making it nature’s real paradise on earth that can add to the pristine photographic.
