The day before this shot was taken, the whole place was a complete whiteout from a sudden snow flurry. You couldn’t even see the Tiger Nest Monastery from this distance. I was actually worried that I wouldn’t pull off the shot due to the inclement weather. Fortunately, after studying various weather forecasts, I was confident the clouds would dissipate slowly and besides there was nothing else to do but give it a go! 
Now as Tiger Nest is perched on a mountain, I knew that I wouldn’t have to get there before sunrise as I would usually and on top of that, I didn’t fancy sitting around in sub-zero conditions. So alarm set for 4:30am instead of 3:30am - I’m already winning! As I stood outside waiting for my guide from @bhutantours. I looked hopelessly at the ominous weather. Visibility was poor. My guide, Sonam pessimistically said that there was a 50/50 chance we would see sunrise and that he even prayed for me! But those odds were good enough for me! On average, it was a 2 – 3 hour trek to this viewpoint but as it was cold we stormed it in 1 hour 40 mins (with a coffee break)! As if our prayers were answered, upon reaching the viewpoint, the clouds started to lift slowly like curtains unveiling one of the greatest shows on Earth. Tiger Nest Monastery was as enchanting as I had imagined it to be. I was always captivated by the monastery sitting precariously on the edge of these vertiginous cliffs. Was I hallucinating from the high altitude? 
The scenery looked like it belonged in a blockbuster CGI movie! As the hairs began to stand up on the back of my neck, I had to blink several times to adjust my eyes to comprehend such a marvel and appreciate such audacious architecture. At that moment the universe aligned and I was there as a helpless spectator watching as all the elements came together at exactly the right time: The blinding sun peeped from behind the mountain illuminating the snow brushed evergreens and the low clouds in the valley.

This is me savouring life intensely every hundredth of a second. #traveltuesday.

यहाँ के हम सिकंदर
चाहें तो रख ले सबको अपनी जेब के अन्दर 
अरे हमसे बचके रहना मेरे यार 
नहीं समझे है वो हमें, तो क्या जाता है 
हारी बाजी को जीतना हमें आता है 🐕

This week I wore mascara four days in a row, but more notably I attended four tshechu days in a row. The past few days have filled my heart with so much joy and appreciation for this country and all of its magical traditions. Thanks Bhutan - keep doing you..
