Bhutan travel, from damphu to lhamoidzingkha

 Bhutan travel, from damphu to lhamoidzingkha

there will be some excitement when traveling to new places. As I saw on social media, lhamoidzingkha is full of color and geological wonders.

I once believed that this place was part of Pengcuolin near the border. It is also one of the oldest towns in the country.

it is said that this town can be reached from chuha DIGE. However, there is an alternative route along dagapela dalbari road.

as far as gesalin, dagana, it seems that people are traveling between human settlements. From there, the journey is long and risky. There are only a few concentrated settlements. Otherwise, the endless winding road looks like a highway to uncertainty

the secondary national highway connecting dagapera and lamozinha in Darbari is still incomplete. There are four major bridge constructions at different stages of development. Some workers told me to drive over a long cliff quickly and said that it would be completed next month.

by then, travelers will have to drive through four dangerous streams that swell during the monsoon. A temporary bridge built on samaranchu was damaged at one end.

some workers built side drains and cleared away sundries there. They said that without proper drainage pipes, the asphalt road was soon washed away by the heavy rain.

no vehicle is driving on the road. I saw only a few polleros on the way. The journey through the tall, humid and dense forest is silent. When the fog rose from these trees, the air was filled with the fragrance of soil, just like the cultivated soil.

if it were not for the wide and deep scars in some areas caused by excavation, people could feel the significance of living in one of the carbon negative countries in the world. At different locations, powerful ridges surround the place.

although it is one of the most remote tsongkha mountains in the country, with the highest poverty rate and alcohol abuse rate, dagana is a virgin tsongkha – people are bound to find rare species at random – some lovers even need years to glimpse it.

for example, a lonely red necked Hornbill, a golden monkey and swarms of butterflies.

the road passes through the sound of various birds.

there are not many settlements. There are several houses in the middle of the dense forest – people can’t help wondering about the rampant conflict between humans and wildlife in the region. It is rumored that the residents of nichulaguo are looking for more immigrants, hoping that more people can drive away wild animals.

drungkhag is known for the increase in incidents of conflict with elephants.

this is a steep decline after deorali. I have no sense of direction. I met a man on the side of the road. He told me I was in kamalin. Deorali stands on the top of the mountain.

there is a sense of elation, as if you have finally completed the 150 km journey. The asphalt road came to an abrupt end. There is no sign of diversion. The road I took seemed to be an asphalt road, but it might seem deceiving. Finally, there were potholes and cracks. I went the wrong way – karmaling gewog central road.

the road leading to lhamoidzingkha town is not much better. It has no asphalt and must be driven on gravel. Before arriving at the town, there were four streams to cross, and each stream was bigger than the other. This road only applies to boleros trucks.

streams are almost of different colors – purple. Pebbles are green, red and purple. Lhamoidzingkha or kalikhola, therefore named after the goddess palden Lhamo or Maha Kali, is considered blessed. Lama Lamini and the lake of God have ridges of different colors, such as Mandala.

after more than 4 kilometers’ drive, I arrived at lhamoidzingkha town. Large areca orchards line the roadside. The whole landscape is a”doma tshang “. The old city was torn down and turned into ruins.

residents said that since sunkosh project may end their problems, urban development has stopped. The project never came, and the residents are paying a price for it. They ran out of electricity for several days.
