Kingdom in the Himalayas

Travel to an ancient land

some yaks and a moon away… Reach the Kingdom of Bhutan

Guided by prayer flags

Arrive at our destination, Zhiwa Ling


Shining like a jewel in the mountains


Climb up the steep walkway as you admire the lattice work..


But wait till you see what is inside!
Beautiful intricate work by local artisans


With a painting thrown in for good measure


Looks even more beautiful up close..

After the visual feast, rest yourself on the chairs


Or the ornamental chaise

And get ready to slumber

So that you are awake to experience the magic of the night
We all are waiting to hear from you..
how did you like our kingdom?

A kingdom in the Himalayas
East of India

  14. Hey Vini! Doesn’t this place just makes you want to pack your bags, couple of books, some music [and I am trying to decide laptop or no laptop ;-)], and head for the road?

  15. Hello Constance :-)…No, these photos are not mine…I have been to Himalayas – but on the ‘Indian’ side…not traveled to Bhutan as yet. Have been longing too…Along with breathtakingly beautiful mountain-scape, Bhutan has a very strong buddhist culture..
