#Rinpung_Dzong is a large dzong - Buddhist monastery and fortress - of the Drukpa Lineage of the Kagyu school in Paro District, Bhutan. It houses the district Monastic Body and government administrative offices of Paro Dzongkhag. It is listed as a tentative site in Bhutan's Tentative List for UNESCO inclusion.
In the 15th century local people offered the crag of Hungrel at Paro to Lama Drung Drung Gyal, a descendant of Pajo Drugom Zhigpo. Drung Drung Gyal built a small temple there and later a five storied Dzong or fortress which was known as Hungrel Dzong.
In the 17th century, his descendants, the lords of Hungrel, offered this fortress to the Drukpa hierarch, Ngawang Namgyal, the Zhabdrung Rinpoche, in recognition of his religious and temporal authority. In 1644 the Zhabdrung dismantled the existing dzong and laid the foundations of a new dzong. In 1646 the dzong was reconsecrated and established as the administrative and monastic centre of the western region and it became known as "Rinpung Dzong". Location: Rinpung Dzong, Paro, Bhutan

Punakha Dzong Suspension Bridge, one of the oldest of its kind, is an important part of the architectural history of Bhutan as it was built to connect the villages of Shengana, Samdingkha and Wangkha to the Palace of the Wangchuk Kings!
It is draped with prayer flags all along and provides a perfect spot for bird watching and nature photography and not to mention the panic attacks it gives to a few visitors as it swings and sways a bit due to the strong winds from the flowing river beneath it!
Nevertheless, I fooled around trying to swing the bridge giving shock to many out there! Mission accomplished! 😉

The Best Part of Being A Rider Is To Get A Chance To Admire The Wonderful Creation Of The God In Different Part Of The World.
Feeling overwhelmed, stressed and burnt out from the routine city life I spontaneously decided to take a 10 day trip to Bhutan.
There were many highlights and incredible moments .They ranged from climbing up to the Tigers nest to feeling calm when spinning the wooden prayer wheels and feeling invigorated breathing in the fresh mountain air whilst walking through the rice fields.
