    Hike to Cheri Monastery

    November 14, 2019 in Bhutan ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We are all going on a hike today. We are all looking forward to that. We drive further up into the mountains in our van that has no seatbelts. Dandin our guide explained it yesterday to us. According to him you don’t want to wear seatbelts in Bhutan because the cars travel at a low speed (true) and the road sides are steep. If you go off the road it might be better to not be in the vehicle all the way to the bottom. My mom used to think the same way. I’m not sure I buy the idea, but heck I’ve lived a good life so let’s take a chance.
    We all get out by a bridge over a fast running river. There are the usual stray dogs lying about. Dandin calls them solar powered dogs. They lay in the sun all day charging up and then spend all night barking and carrying on.
    It’s a nice hike up to the monastery. Sunshine, blue skies and a pleasant temperature. We take it slow, take some pics and have a nice morning of it.
