Bhutanese Nomad Hut

Category: Places


Photo and caption by Terri Schneider

Bhutanese nomads build huts in the mountains in which they can reside while on the move. The huts are built off the ground so that humans can sleep above ground while animals can use the protection under the hut (similar to how they build traditional Bhutanese homes). This hut was perched on a steep drop-off with views of the misty valley thousands of feet below.

Location: Rodang La Route, Eastern Bhutan
