Festive Season at Amankora

2019 Festive Season at Amankora

The festive season in Amankora is a celebration of the simpler pleasures of life and is a journey to one’s own path of finding happiness, just as how the people of the Kingdom of Bhutan would find joy in the smallest of things that unfold around them.
