<img src="" alt="View between Murichom and Choka from Views in Bootan (1813)" />


This engraving by William Daniell was made from an original drawing by Samuel Davis and became plate 6 in their book, 'Views in Bootan'. The text accompanying this scene reads: "The mountains in this part of the road appear as if separated by violence to give a passage to the river Teenchoo [Thimphu Chu]. The side up which the road ascends is precipitous, and of an height to render the climbing of it intimidating to those less accustomed to it than the natives." As the British climbed the thickly wooded inclines, "the hoarse murmurs of the Teenchoo are heard, though the river is not always seen as the traveller ascends".

By the late 18th century the British were beginning to supplant the Tibetans as the major external threat to Bhutan, and Anglo-Bhutanese relations became mired in boundary disputes that eventually resulted in Bhutan losing territory in the 19th century. These were the first images of Bhutan to reach the British public.
