Bhutan is paradise for photographers since most of the outsiders often compared as Switzerland, has beautiful snow clad mountains and vibrant landscape dotted with enchanting Buddhist temples and Gonpas (in centuries-old style), rugged dzongs and houses in traditional architectural design decorated with most elaborate paintings and sculptures of flying phallus. Taking photos of red-robed monks presiding over religious ceremonies like the consecration of new houses by invoking spirits from village homes, celebrating weddings and births. The overwhelming people retaining beautiful traditional costume making pilgrimages to monasteries to offer prayers and butter lamps offers outstanding photo taking experiences.
During Tshechu/Festivals you will inspire taking photos of rare spellbinding mask dances and rituals performed by monks in the courtyard of the Dzong filled with people wearing their finest clothes and unfold of a huge sacred religious Thangkha or "Thongdroel". This is truly a special photo trip because a journey will open your heart and mind to experience and understand Bhutan’s rich spiritual tradition with a unique photography experience.
