Wee Cheng�s Bhutan youtubed!

Wee Cheng’s Bhutan youtubed!
Dear All,
Back from beautiful Bhutan last weekend. An amazingly beautiful country with Alphine landscapes, photogenic people, the most intricate traditional architecture and spectacular festivals. I attended two tsechus – religious mask dances and ancient drama-plays in the country and have taken some of my best photos and videos ever taken in my many travels worldwide. I’m too busy now to upload the photos and do any travel report this week. So I have created a youtube account so that all of you can have a look at this amazing land of the Thunder Dragon - Just click the links below and find yourself in Bhutan!
Have fun and let me know your comments.
Wee Cheng


The annual religious festival in Thimphu, capital of Bhutan. The black hat dancers assume the role of yogis with the power to subdue and create life. An important dance that is also used in purification ceremonies during the construction of Dzongs, temples, chortens.

A beautiful area with Swiss-like landscape and pretty venacular architecture in western Bhutan. Look out the penis painting on the first house in the video - these are symbols to ward off evil. (more)
