Visiting Speaker

Boyd Harris
People and Mountains of the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan

Bhutan is a remote country to the east of Nepal. Its sacred mountain Chomolhari 7,326 m (24,035 ft) was first climbed in 1937 by Freddy Spencer Chapman (1907-1971) and Sherpa Pasang Dawa Lama. This presentation covers their ascent and my further exploration into the North West area of the Bhutanese Himalayas and its remote villages.
