Crossing the Pelela pass

We had a long travel day from from the village of Trongsa (elevation 7472) to the village of Punakha (elevation 4600). On route we went over a high pass is around 10,399feet. We hung our own prayer flags on the chorten at the summit. Lunch was in a rustic village. Here is a photo of the restaurant. Paintings of phalluses are on the sides of many houses and buildings. The Bhutanese are really into honoring fertility.
