Bhutan is a tiny kingdom that is probably the closest thing to paradise on earth! Although it is “poor” by the definition of western economics, it’s an incredibly rich country in terms of its culture, people, natural beauty, and pristine environment.

dscn7357The King is a forward thinking individual, and everyone in the country is given free education and health care among many other benefits. It is the only country on earth that has a government policy of “Gross National Happiness” where the goal is to provide citizens with a perfect balance of economic opportunity, a clean environment, and spiritual well being!

Although Bhutan is expensive to visit due to a government policy that drastically limits the number of tourists allowed into the country, once you visit it, you will understand why, and gladly support this policy!

For people who have trekked with us in other parts of the Himalayas, or if you’re new and looking for a truly special and unique experience, a trip to Bhutan is a highlight not to be missed!

Kevin Grange has written a wonderful book chronicling our Snowman Trek:

Nepal is a land of unparalleled scenic beauty and one of the most diverse geographical regions on earth. It contains an incredible variety of terrain in a relatively small area, ranging from the tropical lowlands of the “Terai” at about 300 ft above sea level to the summit of Mt. Everest at 29,035 ft (8850m)! What adds an even more interesting dimension to Nepal is the fact that its friendly people are from over 35 different tribal groups!

Witness the amazing journey to Everest Base Camp!

Nearly half the world’s population lives downstream from Tibet with five of Asia’s great rivers including the Indus, Mekong and Brahmaputra having their headwaters in the “Roof of the World”.

    Right from my first inquiry I was impressed with the professional and helpful way my many pre-trip questions were handled· the trek itself went way beyond my expectations· it was well-organized, the food was excellent, the trek support staff were excellent, and our trek leader Chris, given the weather problems we encountered, was truly remarkable.
