ITHF members explore Nepal and Bhutan

The tour party:

Our ITHF Nepalese member - Tilak Thapa Magar,  organized a tour package for ITHF members and their families. It started at Kathmandu with visits to World Heritage Sites before moving on to visit earthquake stricken areas of Dhading.  From there the tour moved to the beautiful city of Pokhara with visits to important sites before returning to Kathmandu for a few days.

A tour of the mysterious land of Bhutan was available as an optional extra that offered a rare combination of peace and harmony amidst some of the world's most stunning mountain scenery.  Based in Thimphu this option began with two days of sight seeing followed by attendance at the first Rotary District Conference ever held in Bhutan.

Uen Hua (Aircon) Chao and Janet Chao were in the tour party and have sent this report:

All participants enjoyed ITHF Bhutan/Nepal Tour. We are very happy to have the chance to explore mysterious Bhutan and Nepal. Thanks to our Nepalese member Tilak Thapa Magar, he  made great efforts  to make this tour possible, also thank to our Nepal/ Bhutan VP Sita Rupakheti. She has done an excellent job to make our journey more enjoyable.
