Prologue : On a fine morning of 7th January, just a week or two before my marriage, a notification popped up on my cellphone. It was from Facebook notifying me of memories about our trip to Jhalong River Camp about a year ago. I immediately shared the pic on my timeline and tagged my co-travelers, my nephew, Avijit and my friend Trijit. We 3 had a great time at Jhalong River Camp about a year ago. How fast time flows by. Soon I received a like and a comment on my post. It was from Avijit asking “Hobe Naki?” (Let’s...Read More
12th February : Day 12 : Paro To Hasimara : Well, we had to accept the truth that our long planned trip was now about to complete. We really enjoyed each and every moment we spent here in Bhutan but now we have to go back to same old boring life again. With no excitement left in us, we started for our return journey at around 8:30 AM. But Tshering was not there, she left for Thimphu where she used to work. Surprisingly we all were sitting silently, even Raj didn’t even uttered a single word. At around 11...Read More
11th February : Day 11 : Hike to Tiger’s Nest (Taktsang Monastry) : The plan for the day was to hike to Paro Taktsang or Tiger’s Nest after Exploring Paro, Haa and Chele La Pass.

The Tiger’s Nest monastery is located on a cliff of 3000 feet (900...Read More
9th February : Day 9 : Thimphu to Paro and Paro Sightseeings : First of all let me wish you Losar Tashi Delek. Losar is Bhutanese / Tibetian New Year and Tashi Delek means Welcome in Dzhongkha. After exploring the The Old Capital – Punakha, our plan for the day was to go to Paro, as well as to do the sightseeing at Paro, the last leg of our trip. So we started a bit late at around 10:00 AM today, as travelling to Paro hardly takes one to one and a half hours. While moving to Paro, we...Read More
7th February : Day 7 : Bumthang to Punakha via Trongsa : Due to the tragic incident at The Most Historic Dzongkhag – Bumthang we woke up with no excitement in our hearts. It mostly affected Me, my Wife and my Cousin as we were of same age and used to have a lot of fun. We started calling him Achu (means elder brother in Dzonkha), but our achu was no longer there to entertain us. Our plan for the day was to go to Punakha and proceeding to Thimphu next day after sightseeing at Punakha. Sharp at 8:30...Read More
