Virtual World Tour: Kingdom of Bhutan

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to set foot in the Kingdom of Bhutan?  Or envisioned a road trip across that Himalayan nation nestled between India and Tibet? And to travel for two weeks with two strangers who greet you at the airport in Thimphu?

In this video, meet Funso and Dorji, who show us waterfalls, centuries-old temples, narrow mountain roads, leisure-time activities of children and adults, and a religious dance festival celebrated every year for 330 years.

Watch as Funso and Dorji tie Buddhist prayer flags, whose prayers and mantras will be carried by the wind across the kingdom and to nearby Tibet.  And look over Funso’s shoulder as he sets out a feast next to a river along the road trip way.
