From bustling markets to prayer flag-strewn mountain passes, from happy monks in maroon robes to massive ancient fortresses, Bhutan is a Shangri La for image-makers. In the month of June the summer landscape takes on a luscious green with rice paddy fields covering all of Paro Valley, wild flowers strewn like dots of paint on the alpine meadows. In November the monsoon clouds are a distant memory and the landscape snap s into sharp focus with crystal light, inky skies and fabulous mountain views.
Uma Paro has developed this unique seven-night adventure for photographers of all levels and interests. An experienced photographer will accompany the group, our time divided between the two distinctly different valleys of Paro and Punakha. It will be a combination of location shoots and serendipitous meetings or “happy accidents” with friendly locals along the way.
