A beguiling vacation to Bhutan

I travelled to Bhutan with my parents for a holiday.  Since we like going for scenic holidays Bhutan was a good choice.  I will briefly describe about Bhutan so that you readers don’t get bored after reading pages and pages. Bhutan is a landlocked country located in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas. We went to Paro,  Thimpu, Wangdiphodrang and Bumtang.

My favourite places that I loved visiting in Paro a Kyichu Lha Khang Monastery. edited kyichu lha khang.png

We also went to the thimphu chorten. Chorten means a Buddhist shrine a monument to the Lord Buddha. Monastery is a building that is occupied by monks who live under religious vows. I stayed at Kichu Resort in Paro which was very nice. I liked it because it was comfortable, peaceful and scenic.

I liked thimphu because of the scenic beauty and the different monasteries and chorten that thimphu has. The chorten and the monasteries have different architecture as those that I have seen in other temples.

Bumtang.

I visited the Punakha dzong in Bumtang. Dzong means fortress. Punakha dzong means the palace of great happiness. It is the administrative center of Punakha district in Punakha Bhutan. I liked the palace because it was different from the palaces that I have seen while travelling to other places like for example the schonbrunn palace in vienna.
