Bhutan

Paro Dzong


Paro Dzong_Silvia Tomarchio Photography_Bhutan_night photography

My last day in Bhutan, back to Paro a great way to finish off 5 days of travel photography,  this was taken from my hotel room on the night before heading back to India. Rinpung Dzong

Paro Dzong ranks as a high point of Bhutanese architecture. The massive buttressed walls that tower over the town are visible throughout the valley. It was formerly the meeting hall for the National Assembly and now, like most dzongs, houses both the monastic body and district government offices, including the local courts. Most of the chapels are closed to tourists but it’s worth a visit for its stunning architecture and views.  Lonely Planet


Kyauk Kalap

Standing proud in the middle of a small, artificial lake is Kyauk Kalap, Hpa An, Myanmar, a tall finger of sheer rock mounted by one of the most unlikely pagodas in Myanmar. It is  a working monastery and is closed every day from 12pm to 1pm to allow the monks to meditate. From the top you can see great views of Mt Zwegabin, a great place for a sunset.
