nice views

Nature is always welcoming and this is a nice park worth a couple of hours to see and relax in. There is a nice bridge at the entrance.

So beautiful to drive through ...but even better to get off the road to walk through the forest. Our Wind Horse Tour guides started us birding. Flowers, butterflies, birds everywhere.

I don't know why people visit this place. The one and only thing worth seeing over here is the National Animal of Bhutan. Other animals and birds can't be seen. There were a couple of ladies who were weaving scarves which was surprising to see. Nothing much otherwise either.

Forest and streams are plentiful in Bhutan, but this one is easy to reach from Thimphu. There are some lovely monestaries and walks to do of various lengths depending on time. Worth a visit and good to take a short drive there.
