PARO VALLEY, Bhutan
Bhutanese girls in traditional dress sit outside Rinpung Dzong in Paro Valley, Bhutan March 16, 2011. The Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan is becoming increasingly popular for well-heeled travelers keen to explore this remote and unspoiled Buddhist Shangri La. Surrounded by mountains and flanked by India and Tibet, this tiny country has only been opened to tourism for a few decades and its traditional way of life remains miraculously preserved despite the growing prevalence of mobile phones and cable television. Paro Dzong (Rinpung Dzong) is an enormous fortress-monastery built in 1646 which featured in the movie "The Last Emperor". It is also the site for Bhutan's famous Tsechu, a spectacular festival held each spring where thousands come to see the elaborate costumes and dances which recreate stories from Buddhist mythology.
