About Lobesa - Metsina
Lobesa, located some 100 kms east of Paro, served as the place of our accommodation on 28th Oct. morning when we checked in there for a couple of hours to freshen up for our day long trip to Paro, as well as for the night halt on the same day before bidding adieu to Bhutan the next day. Lobesa, as described by our guide, is the windiest town in Bhutan and also the most fertile in the otherwise mountainous kingdom. Time for something about our accommodation which was nothing more than an inn with all rooms on the ground only (i.e, no other floor above the ceiling). The inn was built as per the Buddhist architecture with each room having colourful & intricate paintings on its walls, which for any novice would mean nothing but would definitely attract a true connoisseur of art. And the best part of our room was breathtaking and panoramic view of the Himalayan ranges with paddy fields at the foothills. After quick bath, we had a quick breakfast too and set off for the 3 hours drive to Paro, which was our the last major phase of our Bhutanese trip.
