Bhutan - Travelling across mountain roads to Thimphu

Reading about the obnoxious polluted air in Beijing and living in a city where traffic congestion and over-crowdedness everywhere is getting to be the norm, I seek relief just looking again at the hundreds of photos I had taken on my trip to Bhutan last September. 

I feel a yearning for the vastness of the mountains, the blue of the skies decorated with awesome white clouds, the waterfalls and the swift-flowing, roaring waters of the rivers.  

This post features the 7-hour long journey on a medium-sized bus travelling along narrow mountain roads that skirted the mountain slopes where the passing scenery was really out of the world that I have known all my life living in a city. More photos can be accessedhere>>>>>

 The air and everything was greener and fresher as we ascended the mountain slopes.
The University of Bhutan at a high altitude.
We were above the clouds!
Water weaving its way down the mountain.
Laundry guarded by dogs. 
The river, clean and green.
