Bhutan is an ideal place and a frequent haunt for photographers offering immense opportunities for photography especially during the outdoor sightseeing trips. There are certain places such as monasteries and temples, where photography is prohibited however there is no restriction on photographing Dzongs and Goembas from outside. If you are uncertain about whether or not photography is permitted, please check with your local guide. You should refrain from taking pictures of military installations. One can however, capture images of the landscapes, the panoramic views of the mountain ranges, the rural folk life, the flora and fauna, the Bhutanese architecture and the Dzongs and Chortens in particular. You will also wish to record the local people, their houses and shops etc., always ask by a gesture if it is alright to do so.
