    Namphung Moungmai, Thailand
  • It was my amazing experience for river rafting at Punakha. I told my guide I would like to have a memorable experience in Bhutan. My guide recommended river rafting. I asked my guide about safety and the answer was yes it was safe, as it was not in rainy season and there were experience staff came on boat, too.  Without hesitate, I agreed to try. He arranged booking and I began my rafting after getting instruction.  My guide kept his words to serve us all the time by getting on the boat with me and my friends.  Along the way, I could see beautiful view of Punakha Dzong, town and villages alongside of the river. It is worth to try if the season is allowed. To arrange for rafting, simply tell your tour guide and he could be able to do the arrangement for you with the cost of USD150 per boat. I was lucky that I was served by experience travel agent with guide who is professional in serving what guest wish. I was happy with my trip. Thank you Aster Tours & Travel for giving me a great service and wonderful memory of Bhutan.

Making of Mini stupa or Tsa Tsa in Buddhism is a part of a meditation practice and it is considered a way of eliminating obstacles, purifying negativities and gaining merits.  Mini stupas or Tsa Tsa are made with clay, left to harden and then placed on clean sites above the road.

 

 

Prayer flag hoisting; The prints on the prayer flags symbolizes Buddha, Darma and Sangha and hoisting prayer flags by the river, across the bridges and on the hilltop is supposed to make peace, compassion, wisdom and prosperity increase while dangers disappear.  One can also write on them the names of those whom you particularly wish to dedicate your prayers and merit accumulated while hanging the flags.

 

River rafting the rivers in Bhutan are steady in some and are rapid and fast flowing in other making it perfect for rafting. The river meandering down the lush green Georges and valleys gives a dramatic backdrop making it rather fascinating and sights to various species of flora and fauna is a experience never to be missed.  

Weaving in Bhutan is a process of making intricate textile and this process is an essential part of Bhutan’s cultural heritage. The women usually dye the yarn organically or buy it from market and weave sophisticated pattern with vibrant color. This has been a practicing for ages, throughout the history of Kingdom.
