Beauitiful hike to Dungtsho (Conch lake) via phajoding, Thimphu

 Dungtsho trek is getting popular among Bhutanese. Even if not, it is true that the trek to lake is getting popular among the people who live in Thimphu. The trip is favorable for honeymoon among young couples, pilgrimage among elderly and week-end energy for office workers. It is two days journey from Thimphu- Motithang base camp. 

Many travelers prefer to halt a night at Thuji Drak ( holy camp among young monks) and I recommend it unless you have strong legs to withstand speed of horse. On the next day, it is advisable to start the journey to the lake as early as 5 o’clock to enjoy the beautiful view of early sun on green summer mountains.

What else you need to know?

If you are planning a trip to Dungtsho, you might consider talking to someone who has been there recently to get updates of the journey. In case you could not find  and worried, please consider following essentials while you are planning trip.

  1. A pair of good and strong shoe to keep yourself moving throughout the height.
  2. Good amount of ration unless you can sustain with snacks
  3. Rain coat or umbrella is necessary unless you like the cold mountain rains.
  4. Other essential items required during the time of any visit to holly place ( Gho, incense stick  and etc…)   
  5.     Thick clothes  and sleeping bag to keep yourself warm from cold wind.

How did we plan?

After failing the plan on the first week, we made it on second time. It was whether forecast and unrealistic objection from ourselves which failed the plan on first trial. All of us had difficult time to choose the day to hike when we were thinking of night on the top of mountain as high as 4000 meters from sea level. We were afraid of altitude sickness and the cold mountain rain.

WELL WEll Well. I assure that it is worth taking the risk of pain and sickness.   It is really beautiful journey and feels the worth and satisfaction of climbing to the height once we step to the place marked by dwarf Rhododendrons and shrubs. Beautiful and picturesque scenes have never allowed us to see the bumpy and rough terrains along the way.

 Guest room is limited at Thuji Dra and therefore it is important for you to prepare for cold windy night unless you love the cold night air.

Blogging and its opportunity to make money. Story of my Adsense partnership approval success.

  A Year ago, I started blogging without having much idea about it. I was introduced to blogging by Mr. Nidup Jamtsho, a very good friend of mine and also an enthusiastic blogger ( and YouTuber ( Mr. Nidup). We talked about  lot of opportunities, an opportunity to earn. Our major conversation used to be about online earning. Bitcoin mining, SFI, Pi mining, YouTubing, and blogging used to be our hot conversation. I would like to confess that I have tried all of them. However, none was successful as I wish but I was never tired of doing it. Frankly, it was difficult for me to hide the feeling of quitting from myself. I used to hide the feeling of quitting and used to involve in money talk with friends to inspire myself. I used to tell my friends, classmate, and family about blogging and the opportunity. I tried blogging from last year and applied three times for AdSense partnership approval. I have to wait for two weeks to get a reply mail from AdSense Company and gett

"Awakening phase of life"

This is non fiction story about a girl who lost her beloved  father in the middle of the class 12 board examination. I was honored to be her audience in the class. Her name is Kinga lhazom, currently doing bachelors in Social Work at samtse college of education. I am hopeful that this story will inspire many others like me and therefore I am honoured to share you this inspiring  speech. "The major notions that I ponder about life is “changes” , during the session between life and death , we go through   lots of hurdles and sunshine , that we either live in or push it a far . Life is not always as swift as it seems, it will always have uncountable loopholes and only one with determination to success, possess strength to stand against it. I wonder how many people must have gave up on dreaming about living in bliss ,just because your first step brought you down on your knees , and   I personally feel   that I lost abundance of   opportunity just because I couldn’t stand a chance.
