BHUTAN


Palaces were constructed much recently in Bhutan, only after Wangchuck dynasty came to power. Jigme Namgyal, the father of the first king, built some of the first Bhutanese palaces. Most of the palaces were built between 1870 to 1940. During this time, Bhutan had a relatively peaceful and stable period. With the diminishing use of dzongs or fortresses, palaces were built in the Bumthang and Trongsa regions. Similar to a dzong in terms of architecture, the main architectural elements of a Bhutanese palace is the central building that usually had the residence of the master and a private prayer room on the upper floor.

A courtyard surrounded this building while the kitchen and the servants’ quarters were situated in an outer structure. Elaborate and ornate, places usually had rich and intricate wood work and the windows in the outer building were painted profusely. The most notable palaces in Bhutan are the palaces of Lamey Goemba, Wangdue Choeling and Ugyen Choeling in Bumthang; Kuenga Rabten and Samdrup Choeling situated south of Trongsa Dzong and the mansions of Gangtey in Paro. Ugyen Pelri Palace built around 1930 in Paro is unique in terms of palatial architecture of Bhutan as it as built on the model of the Zangdopelri (the celestial abode of Guru Rinpoche). Paro Poenlop Tshering Penjor built it.

INDIA

NEPAL


Nepal is home to network of trails also called the Great Himalaya Trails, an extensive trail system that covers Nepal from Humla and Darchula in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east. The diversity of trekking in Nepal cannot be found in any other region of the world. In fact, the lowest point in Nepal is 59 m above sea level in the Terai region while the highest point is Everest, 8,848 m above sea level; the two points are, in a straight line, only 200 kilometers apart.
Trekking in Nepal today is completely different to that of the 1960s. In all the main trekking areas, the National Parks and Conservation Areas lodges have been established where trekkers can find accommodation, food and meet other trekkers and locals along the way. The majority of the trails are well maintained.
