Bhutan, Land of the Druk Yul or Land of the Dragon , is a land wrapped in myth and legend, hidden from the rest of the world by its mountains. Its legends swirl around supernatural beings, around ancient monastery fortresses and around its Tibetan Buddhist culture. Bhutan’s festivals, or Tsechus, offer colorful mask dances and religious performances depicting the unparalleled cultural heritage of this enigmatic country.
We will travel to the valleys of Bumthang in central Bhutan; the holiest and most spectacular in the country. While we shall photograph some of the country’s best tsechus (annual religious Bhutanese festivals), the principal destination is to attend and photograph the tsechu in Prakhar. This is a smaller festival, however deemed more rustic than those that are readily accessible to tour buses. Our route will take us from Paro in western Bhutan all the way to its heartland, and we will photograph its villages, ancient monasteries, temples and fortresses along our route.
Important Notice: The Land of the Druk Yul photo-expedition is limited to 8 photographers on a “first registered first in” basis.
