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?

Bhutan,
A kingdom in the Himalayas
East of India

  1. this is lovely! the hotel looks awesome. we did some budget stay but we did see this resort on the way to the drugyel dzong ruins! the tiger’s monastery was one of my most memorable climbs. so awe inspiring. zhiwa ling looks more like a palace 🙂 loved he pic of the paro monastery between the prayer flags… stunning!

  2. Bhavna everytime I visit lately I return to this post again and again. Makes me feel transported to a storybook land. sigh. You always post the most delicious photos!

  3. 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 🙂

  5. Brilliant & informative post- Those pics were amazing- especially the 3rd 4th 6th & 7th. What i wouldn’t do to land up here!!! awesome!

  6. 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!
