Have a look great blog post by Sankara Subramanian about one very special country: Bhutan. Here is a flash from one of his visits to the fortress – or dzong – called Punakha :
“Situated between two rivers, Pho Chu and Mo Chu, for the obvious strategic advantage, this dzong is connected to the mainland via a wooden bridge. Inside, it has a rich heritage of Bhutanese history, and you will get to see many relics of the old Bhutanese kings. If you visit during the springtime, you will see the colourful Jacaranda trees around the dzong and you will either feel dreamy, if you are the poetic type, or remember your favourite computer wallpaper, if you are a techie.”
Below you can read more about why Sankara almost never wanted to leave Bhutan and see his beautiful shots from the adventure.
