When You Come to a Crossroad in Life, Go up



I wanted to pack my trekking poles and fly to Bhutan the instant I saw this video. It's a promo vid for Kevin Grange's upcoming book, Beneath Blossom Rain-Discovering Bhutan on the Toughest Trek in the World.

Watch this video if you plan to hike in Bhutan. You'll see many of the places that we visit on our Bhutan Chomolhari Trek, including the Tiger's Nest temple and the isolated villages that border Tibet. Better yet, keep an eye out for Grange's new book Beneath Blossom Rain. The book promises an adventurous journey through the magical kingdom of Bhutan.

Pete McBride Photography put together the trailer. You can see more images of the Himalaya, and specifically Bhutan, at his website. He presents some great images that capture the human spirit of the Bhutanese people. Hint; use the arrows at bottom of the screen to flip through his collection. www.petemcbride.com/#/PROJECTS/Himalaya/1
