  1. Land Of Digital Detox!

    Bhutan offers uninterrupted peace of mind from all kinds of technology.The country is the epitome of traditional simplicity. (Bhutan only lifted its ban on television and the Internet in 1999.)All you’ve got to do is stare at the lush green mountains and panoramic views off the cobalt blue skies and dream away.

Tiger’s Nest
Hike upto Tiger's Nest 

Bhutan offers a lot of hiking trails, Tiger’s Nest being one of them and probably the most difficult. Perched on the edge of a cliff(10,240 ft over part valley), it requires a precarious walk across jagged rock steps for access.It takes about 5-6  hours to complete the trek( to and fro to the monastery).It is considered to be the holiest site of Bhutan.The view from the Tiger’s Nest and Tiger’s Nest itself is spectacular, you have to hike up to believe it.One of the most difficult climbs of my life but a must do!

The Architecture

Being an Architect myself it would not be fair to not give credit to the traditional Bhutanese structures  that preside over the vast green landscapes. Their bright white exteriors provide the perfect contrast for the dozens of monks shrouded in red garments and the rainbow of prayer flags that flutter throughout the sky. Hand carved wood texture lends the buildings extra charm.
