The Himalayas lie like an immense snowy necklace around the throat of Tibet. At the northwest end of the range they crash into the mighty Karakorams and then sweep down over the top of India, through Nepal [where I did my Everest trek in 1991] and then roar towards China in the northeast.
Hanging from the necklace is a pendant of great beauty that is the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan. To the north of the kingdom are the snowy peaks of Chomolhari and Gangkar Punsum, mountains of over 24,000 ft.
Bhutan was my destination as I headed off at 4am to drive the 100kms to Adelaide and then fly to Bangkok via Singapore to spend two weeks exploring this ancient kingdom. These photos are part of my Tribute Trek.
