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

Dear Bhavna,
Are these your photographs. Did you go to the Himalayas? I have a few friends that have been.
All beautiful and soulful shots. Those houses nestled on the side of the mountain on the way to Bhutan are amazing!

Have fun today!

Hi eb! and it is awesome to have you as a travel companion! :-)

Project Blancoyd - thank you! Welcome to An Indian Summer :-)

Bhavna said...

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..
Glad you liked the post :)

Bhavna said...

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?

Bhavna said...

Melissa, Thank you so much! :-)
