Poppies of Bhutan

I call myself lucky when I take a look back to all those plant expeditions that I had been privileged to lead all through the places of unsurpassed beauty to the high Himalayas of Bhutan over the years of my experience as a mountain guide, plant enthusiast, and amateur photographer and as the owner of the host tour company.

So here, I am sharing the pictures of the twelve Meconopsis species of Bhutan that I have seen and photographed so far with the hope that in future some can use these photos for reference and study or simply enjoy the beauty of those marvels through my pictures or if there is someone out there that would love to have to show them these jewels in their natural habitat – it is us you should come to!
