Prayer flags at Dochu La

Retracing our steps through the Inner Himalayan mountains and Dochu La (3,140m) pass and Thimphu to reach Paro. It snowed up in the mountains the day prior and the roads were just opened. The roads were still a bit treacherous and in many areas, we had to wait on one side of the road as it had room for only one vehicle at a time.
