Event Description

Nestled in the heart of the Himalayan Mountains, Bhutan has for centuries remained a mystery to the rest of the world. Come with the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, to this land of remarkable climates and ecosystems for the most extraordinary photographic adventure of your life. Because Bhutan has controlled tourism, allowing under ten thousand outsiders each year, it has been less explored and photographed than most other countries. The local people are unspoiled by the outside world, making them one of the friendliest and warmest cultures you will ever visit. There is a mosaic of different people who continue to live in valleys isolated from one another and from the outside world. The Bhutanese have treasured their natural environment as it is seen as a source of all life and the abode of the gods and spirits. Thimpu, the only world capital without traffic lights. has managed to retain its charming, medieval feel with its brightly painted and elaborately decorated facades. The people of Bhutan offer you unbelievable photo opportunities with their colorful dress, music and dancing. When we cross Pele La Pass (11,300 feet), we will be able to view the magnificence of the Himalayan range. Buddhism has been the predominant religion since the seventh century, and we will be able to photograph some of the most ancient and precious Buddhist sites in Bumthang and Jakar, and the Jakar Tsechu festival, one of the kingdom's most famed religious festivals.
