A New Photography tour exploring Bhutan

Como Hotels' Bhutanese retreat and Resort

May 2, 2010

– Uma Paro, Como Hotels’ Bhutanese retreat and Resort, is offering the chance to explore the Kingdom of Bhutan, camera in hand, guided by experienced Bhutanese photographer Ugyen Wangchuk, from 2-9 November 2010.

Considered one of the world’s least explored Buddhist kingdoms, Bhutan is a window on to a fast disappearing traditional way of life.  From bustling markets to prayer flag-strewn mountain passes, from monks in maroon robes to ancient fortresses, Bhutan is certainly a Shangri La for photographers. November is the ideal time to explore Bhutan as monsoon clouds dissipate and the landscape snaps into sharp focus with crystal light, inky blue skies and fabulous mountain views.

This seven night trip is an in-depth exploration with guided tours each day visiting different parts of the country taking in two distinctly different valleys, Paro and Punakha.  Guide and Photographer, Ugyen Wangchuk recently published his first book ‘Bhutan-Portraits and Landscapes’ and has been leading photography courses throughout his country since 2003.   Each day Ugyen will help the group, up to 12 people, discover the culture, villages, temples, wildlife, history and Himalayan scenery that go to make up Bhutan.

Uma Paro is located on a 38-acre site atop of a hill overlooking the town of Paro.
