Bhutan: Khuru

In Bhutan, Archery is the national sport. One can see the sport being competed in a number of different venues. I will come back to that later, but Khuru is also popular! Khuru is a "dart like" sport where the guys competing tries to hit the target around 20 to 40 meters away. Their precision and courage is impressive. The "dart" is pretty big, the target pretty small and the guys standing near the target seems to be worryingly close while the competition is throwing the dart.
Khuru competition taking place after work time in Thimphu, Bhutan. The dart can just be seen leaving the hand of the participant. He is throwing the dart in this case about 40 meters towards the target...and hitting it perfectly!
