Bhutan, Summer 2020

Preparations are underway for Bhutan travel starting from Paro and heading east to Bumthang and Jakar.  Our journey will depart from Albuquerque in June on our way to Bangkok.  We will spend some time in Thailand, heading to Chiang Mai and The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary.  From there we travel to Bhutan and visit temples and dzongs, schools, and villages, talking with families and the humans who live in Bhutan.

As we head east we will make stops in Punakha, Trongsa, Bumthang, and stay at Orgyen Choling in the Tang valley.  Near here the famous lama Pema Lingpa found hidden termas (teachings/writings/messages) and wrote about his discovery transforming Vajrayana Buddhism for all future generations.

As we wind across the country, we will stop in the various places and have the chance to get to know the people and places we stay.  I’ll post detailed descriptions in the coming weeks as a way to reveal where we are going and what we are doing.
