Bhutan – 9 Nights 10 Days

Given a choice, I would die in Bhutan. I want to cease breathing as I sit in Punakha, taking in the snow-capped Himalayas, the rows of prayer flags fluttering in the cool breeze and the imposing 17th-century dzong , known as Druk Pungthang Dechen Phodrang or ‘the palace of great happiness’. I can’t think of a more fitting last visual.
