Dochula Pass: 108 Stupas

At over 3000 meters above sea level, Dochula pass grants one a view of Bhutan in all directions. At one of the viewing points, 108 stupas (chortens) were constructed as a memorial built by the queen, Her Majesty Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk, to honor the victory of the Bhutanese army in the 2003 war of Southern Bhutan. Each one contains effigies of Buddha and religious texts.

On a clear day, the snow capped mountains of the Himalayas can be seen.

A Buddhist Stupa at Pelela. With an altitude of around 3400 metres above the sea level, the Pelela pass stands as the highest physical boundary between the western and Central Bhutan along the East-West national highway. The pass lies inside the administrative boundary of Wangdue Phodrang District.

Wherever you trek in the Himalayas you'll encounter chortens. Being a religious focal point they are believed to have a positive effect on people who live nearby or even pass through...

Historic #buddhist #monuments on the way out of #tinje heading to #shimen. Always a pleasure to see, especially in the middle on nowhere ☺. #chortens #prayerflags

Got all 51 prayer flags hung on Mt. Everest today. Can't believe I didn't melt it all into a puddle. Next I'm building a wooden frame to mount this in. Total size will be 48" x 30". It's only 2 1/4" thick. #Chortens #mteverest ##mteverestbasecamp #prayerflags #tigwelding #shoplife #fabrication #supportlocalartists #fortmillforge #familytimenow

High on top of a mountain pass on the road from Thimphu to Punaka, overlooking the Himalayas, is a concentration of 108 chortens (stupas) built in memory of Bhutanese soldiers killed in the 2003 war against insurgents from India. The Queen Mother, Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck, commissioned the monument after King Jigme Singye Wangchuck was victorious in the struggle to dislodge the rebels who were using Bhutan as a base to raid India.

📌🇳🇵Everest Base Camp Diary DAY 5 : Tangboche Monastery to Dingboche 4400m. Todays walk with mountains at its backdrop, the monastery at Tengboche looks more spectacular in the morning. At this juncture, we can take pictures of the monastery and the scenery around and as usual start the day journey. We choose the upper trail for better views on the way to #Pangboche village (From where this Photo is from). We pass through several #Chortens and #Mani walls and small villages. The place where we stop for lunch not only serves delicious food but also allows a fantastic close-up view of Mt Ama Dablam. In the afternoon, we walk East to Dingboche . . Next Trip- April 2, 2017
