A Soulful Journey Through Nepal & Bhutan
Nestled among the world's highest mountains and subtropical lowland forests, Nepal is a captivating country – and one that has faced many challenges in the wake of a devastating series of earthquakes that hit this Himalayan nation in April. In the aftermath, Nat Hab Expedition Leader Suhail Gupta visited the country to see how the earthquake relief efforts were progressing. During this webinar he will share photos and a field report of this trip, as well as the impact to travelers. Today, Nepal is “open for business” and Suhail will also highlight Nepal's rich wildlife and fascinating culture, from rhinos and expertly camouflaged Bengal tigers in wild jungles to ancient monasteries and peaceable villages tucked among mountain peaks. Bhutan, one of the world’s little-known treasures, had until recently remained in splendid isolation. Dedicated to preserving its deep Buddhist traditions and pristine landscapes, our Bhutan itinerary offers an unusual combination of Himalayan nature and culture. Travelers to Bhutan will journey among ancient monasteries, Himalayan peaks, glacial rivers and peaceable villages, bearing witness to the beauty of this mythical country. Join Suhail on this soulful journey to discover the beauty of Nepal and Bhutan.
