Rafting and Cultural Tour of Bhutan
This October ECHO will run an incredible river trip exploring the tiny nation of Bhutan. Located in Central Asia sandwiched between India and Nepal, this Himalayan Kingdom has a rich history and has retained its ancient culture and traditions in the face of modernization. Bhutan has become increasingly open to foreigners in the last decade and offers many virtually untouched natural environments for rafters to explore.
Many rivers carve out deep gorges and are fed by summer monsoons and Himalayan snow melt. You'll raft past monasteries and ancient fortresses as you journey through the green, forested valleys. Views of the Himalayas, visits to cultural sites, adventurous whitewater and serene shrines will all make this the trip of a lifetime. The 12 day exploration of Bhutan will be led by Zach Collier, who has traveled extensively in Southeast and Central Asia. Join Zach to explore one of the least visited countries in the world.
