In fact, Six Senses Thimphu calls itself the “Palace in the Sky” and is located opposite the mountain which is home to the world’s tallest seated Buddha (170 ft or 52 m tall).

Boot Bananas are a simple yet elegant tool that meet our needs with older, aromatic rock shoes and sidesteps all of the issues above. They are designed and manufactured by a couple in the UK.
