Chili Plantation

Chili peppers are something like a national dish in Bhutan

Wangdue Phodrang

Duration: 

Monday, August 21, 2017

Personal highlights

  1. Chili Peppers: somewhat Bhutanese national dish
  2. Chili Plantation: a rare moment to discover local life
  3. Bhutanese farmers: hard-working people, about half of the GDP
  4. Farmland: most of Bhutan is still rural and farmers work by hand
  5. Journey: returning from a short hike to the Chimi Lhakhang
