    Bhutan City Tour - 8 days

    After leading several Himalayan expeditions myself, including the first American ascent of Annapurna I, I can attest to Chandra’s outstanding qualities as leader and organizer. He is an especially good guide for student groups. I first met Chandra when my daughter attended 8th grade at the Lincoln School in Kathmandu, Nepal, and he was the guide selected by the expat community to lead the 8th  grade students on a week-long “Explore Nepal” trek.  The students and parents really appreciated Chandran’s thoughtful planning and leadership.
    In the last twenty years, I've enjoyed a dozen diverse adventures in Nepal with Chandra.  He always provides great food, gear, and guides as well as personalized itineraries and attention for individual travelers and small and large groups. His company is a good choice for any individual, school, group or family that wants to enjoy their own trek with a personal itinerary at a relatively low cost.
    If you might like a Nepal adventure customized to your interests, abilities, and schedule,  you can learn more at at  Himalayan Icefall Trekking or contact Chandra at himtrekzone@gmail.com.

    The Himalayan Kingdom and Bhutan lies between India and China( Tibet). The country covers 47,000 Square Kilometers and sparsely inhabited, and Bhutan is also known as the country of the Thunder Dragon, a unique and exotic destination. Bhutan forms a gigantic staircase from a narrow strip of land in the south and an altitude of 300 meters up to high Himalayan Peaks in the north with an altitude over 7000 meters.The mountains are magnificent, the forests are dense, the people are delightful, the air is pure, the architecture imposing, the religion exciting, the art superb. The beauty of the pastoral landscape can seem unreal to the travelers from the industrialized world: houses with brightly decorated window frames and shingled roofs: patchworks of green paddy fields, plots of tawny buckwheat, oak forests, a covered bridge, fences of intricately woven bamboo, a man leaning on a wooden rail trampling his harvest, a women weaving in the open air, a baby laced into a horse’s saddle bag, Yaks browsing in a grove of giant rhododendron.The National Language of Bhutan is Dzongkha and the Bhutanese people, are also called by Drukpas. Bhutan is the only country in the world where the tantric form of Mahayana Buddhism is the official state religion.
