The faces say it all. Bhutan greeted us today with a calm & peaceful beauty, at once enchanting and emotional.
It pulls the heart strings like a beautiful piece of music.
The flight is a dream ( try for a left hand seat) & we see the iconic Everest & other mountains in the clear morning light.
Paro airport is a narrow strip on the valley floor and we bank through the clouds for a perfect landing.
The distinctive buildings are vaguely reminiscent of some of the half- timbered houses in the Black Forest. Ornate, pristine.
Wait until you see the Airport & arrivals hall! What a contrast to Kathmandu.
Lyn’s organization is, as usual, superb & our Guide, Phub Dorji & Driver, Kencho Dorji ( Dorji denotes male), meet us at Paro airport & whisk us to our hotels to check in.
After lunch in town we head to the Paro Dzong for the dances of the Paro Festival. It’s a 5 day Festival, everyone dresses in National costume -wonderful colours everywhere as people stream up the slope towards the performance area outside the Dzong
