Here is one travel blogger's story about his trip to Bhutan in 2011. The site provides some great travel information as well as some unique photographs of wildlife, landscapes and festivals. My favourite are the photos of Capped Langur and of the Black-necked Crane Festival. These photos are also a good resource to get an idea of what the sleeping arrangements might be like if you plan on doing a trek after the 2014 ISE congress.

If you want to catch a glimpse of Bhutanese landscapes, experience what it is like to trek at elevations over 4000 meters above seal level among yaks, Dzongs (Buddhist temples), and prayer wheels, watch the first 38 minutes of Michael Palin’s travel documentary: Bhutan to the Bay of Bengal.
After viewing this, I was left with a profound respect for trekking in the cool mountain air and a desire to taste Yak meat served with Bhutanese red rice spiced to perfection with chilies. Also, you can get a glimpse of Paro, the town you will arrive in if you fly into Bhutan on the way to the congress.
From now until the 2014 ISE Congress in Bhutan we will post a series of blogs to help you get to know Bhutan. We welcome any contributions you might want to share to help congress participants learn more about Bhutan before we travel.
