sights & scenes

some of the 108 chortens in dochula, about an hours drive from thimphu. these chortens were built to commemorate the reign of the 4th King Jigme Singye Wangchuck. if you're ever here, it's a great place to visit. on a clear day you can get a great view of the himalayan range.
alot of us go there for a short drive, families take their children for picnics, friends for a ride, tourists for the view and so on. it's now one of the few places where the snow sets as thimphu unfortunately does not get much snow now like before.

frosty prayer flags in dochula during winter. yes, dochula is filled with prayer flags which make for awesome pictures even with the most basic of cameras!
