July/August 2005 | Trongsa, Bhutan

7.14.2005

By OUTTraveler Contributer | FROM THE JULY/AUGUST 2005 ISSUE OF THE OUT TRAVELER

Reader Randall Brown caught these Buddhist monks leaving
their quarters at Bhutan’s Trongsa Dzong (a fortress-temple built in its
present form in 1644), located in the ancestral home of the Bhutanese royal
family. Centuries ago caravans registered here when traveling from eastern to
western Bhutan, the last independent Buddhist kingdom in the lower Himalayas.
Of his 25-day tour, Brown says, “I couldn’t have been closer to
the people and their lives.”
