Footprint Bhutan Handbook (Footprint Bhutan Handbook)

Footprint Bhutan Handbook (Footprint Bhutan Handbook) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Largely untouched and steeped in mystery, Bhutan is a land for anyone wanting experience travel off the beaten track. Footprint's 2nd edition Bhutan Handbook will give travellers everything they need to know in order to fully experience this relatively unknown country. A tiny Himalayan Kingdom, Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, is mysterious, beautiful and fascinating in equal measure. This bastion of Tibetan Buddhism has become synonymous with trekking, hiking, incredible temples and is so untouched by mass-tourism that travellers really will feel like they've experienced another world. Footprint's long-awaited and totally revised 2nd edition Bhutan Handbook, written by expert author Gyrume Djore, provides in-depth coverage of the country's cultural and religious heritage plus fantastic planning and essentials sections. The ultimate companion for intrepid travellers, it will ensure they get the most from their trip to this independent and undeveloped region.

About the Author

Gyurme Dorje was born in Edinburgh in 1950. He holds a PhD in Tibetan Literature (SOAS, 1987) and a Masters degree in Sanskrit with Oriental Studies (Edinburgh, 1971). For over thirty years he has been continuously engaged in both classical and modern Tibetan studies, translating primary sources and conducting fieldwork throughout the Tibetan plateau. Following more than ten years residence among Tibetan communities of North India and Nepal, Gyurme subsequently led forty-two expeditions and cultural tours to the Utsang, Kham, Amdo and Gyarong regions of Tibet from 1985 onwards. Most of these have been under the auspices of Trans Himalaya, which he founded in 1989 with the intention of pioneering diverse overland routes to Lhasa through Eastern Tibet.
