Day 10 back to Thimphu

Today is a religious holiday and our guide took us to the most important local temple. We received a blessing on our heads by the presiding Lama. No photos inside but here you see the ever present prayer wheels.

Here the main prayer Om Mani Padme Hum is written on the walls everywhere. These are at the top of the pass Dochu La. 10,300 feet up where we hung prayer flags we brought from California.
Finally we visited a nature preserve home to the Takin an animal ONLY found in Bhutan. Horns like a goat about the size of a small cow.
