We are in the beautiful valley of Gangtey, 10 thousand feet. Mountains surround and fields are potatoes.

After the market we also stopped at a temple built 1638 that is under renovation, amazing the hand crafting being done.

As we leave the beautiful warm valley of Punakha, we head on our car ride to Gangtey Valley, about three hours of curvey mountain roads. We started out in Thimphu at 8 thousand feet, left there went through a beautiful pass at 10 thousand feet, Punakha at 4 thousand feet and we will bet at 10 thousand feet in Gangtry. We’ve gotten used to the elevation. On the way out of Punakha we stopped at the Saturday Market.
