Bhutan: Temples in Bumthang

Here is a video I put together of a Saturday hike we had with Wangchuk. We hiked down the road from our house to a grouping of very famous temples. Then we visited a spring for a drink. The spring is said to be holy water. Guru Rinpoche is reputed to have drank the water and the powers of the water released a demon inhabiting his body. The locals line up here everyday and wait in line for hours to drink from the spring.



Bhutan: Thimpu to Bumthang

This one will have to be a quick one. This post is a photo diary of our 10 hour trip from Thimpu to Bumthang. I basically hung out the window of the bus constantly shooting as we went. Some of the pics are a bit blurry because of the bus moving and the bumpy road.
