Kyichu Lhakang, near Paro.

A short drive from Paro through typical Bhutanese countryside is Kyichu Lhakang. The original temple was constructed in 659. It has been rebuilt since then and many more buildings have been added at various times.


Archery in Bhutan

An afternoon of archery in Paro, Bhutan. There are two teams that aim to shoot a small wooden target at a distance of 140m. It is such a long way that team members stand near the target to yell back the result. The men also do a slow motion dance to celebrate a successful hit. The different coloured scarves tucked around their waists are scores. This entertaining sport is a common sight in Bhutan. All the archers have a great time!
