Bhutan Cultural Exchange
The photos in the box to the right were taken by freelance tour guide Ugyen Tshewang. He was born in Shakshing Gonpa, a small village in Eastern Bhutan. He is the son of a lay monk, the father of a 3-year old boy. He took these images on one of two Snowman Treks that he guided. The snowman Trek is one of the most beautiful treks in the Himalayas and one of the most difficult treks in the world. When not guiding, he works on his wife's farm.
