Collca publishes ebook about trekking in Bhutan
Collca has published a fully illustrated ebook about one person's trekking experience in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. It's of interest to the armchair traveller as much as to the experience trekker planning to go to Bhutan.
A rare combination of knowledge and literary flare makes Journey in Bhutan stand out as travelogue. To quote from a recent five-star review: “It is a potent and heady blend of voices that all combine to take you into the heart of Bhutan... This book should be the gold standard for travel stories.”
Storyteller, and talented photographer as well as anthropologist, the author takes her readers trekking through the high passes of the Dragon Kingdom, hidden deep in the Himalaya. We scramble up to the Tigers Nest (Taktsang) perched over a 3000ft drop, witness Buddhist rituals, wander through fortified monasteries, and meet local people. As the story unfolds, we learn of the rich culture and history of Bhutan, and why it measures progress in Gross National Happiness.
For the arm-chair traveller, Journey in Bhutan is an experience to be savoured. For anyone who plans to visit Bhutan, or has already done so, it is essential reading.
The ebook also contains 37 of the author’s original colour photographs, a glossary of Bhutanese words, historical time-line and a guide to Bhutanese Buddhism.
