Our 2019 Laya Gasa Trek in the Bhutan kingdom is underway. All 3 members arrived yesterday throughout the morning. When you land in Bhutan, it’s hard not to feel the instant calmness that inhabits this country. After getting everyone checked into their rooms we headed out to Paro town for lunch and then off to see the Rinpung Dzong, or fortress of the heap of jewels. This fortress is impressive. With little crowds and impressive as any Buddhist temple/fortress/buildings I’ve seen it’s a great introduction to Buddhist lore and Bhutan. In the afternoon we walked through Paro town checking out the handicrafts and then headed back to the hotel for an orientation of the trek and dinner. We are all feeling a little jet lag but excited to be here and to soon head out into the backcountry of Bhutan.
I’ll be updating here throughout the trip so stay tuned to this incredible adventure in the Kingdom of Bhutan.
Thanks for following along,
