Bhutan highlights Proofsheet

A Photo Gallery By Heather Farish

Bhutan is a great escape from the hustle, bustle and crowds that dominate south Asia. Its environmental policies mean that roads meander around tree-clad mountains while life has changed little except for the addition of TV, mobile phones, the internet and free healthcare and education. The historic dzongs demonstrate colourful traditional craftsmanship and architecture that goes back centuries.
