The Kingdom of Bhutan 2017 Trip Report

 

 

 

 

          

A Country Poised Between the Ancient and the Modern: Exploring Bhutan

Over March Break 2017, ALIVE Outdoors is very excited to be working with Good Karma Travel to provide a group from RSGC and SMLS with an outstanding learning experience in the Kingdom of Bhutan.  Travelling through Bhutan will offer students a rare and unique opportunity to see the last Himalayan Kingdom, which is said to be one of the most unique and isolated locations in the world.

Some of the goals of our journey are:
•To evaluate and examine our own perspectives and our personal values.
•To learn from and share with the Utpal Academy Higher Secondary School students.
•To deepen and expand our worldview.
•To be immersed in a society that will contrast the difference in pace and values between a life centered in Western consumerism vs. intentional and unhurried living.
•To appreciate Buddhist cultural traditions and spirituality.

Utpal Academy Learning Exchange


Just a quick note to let everyone know that we had an amazing start to our exchange with the Utpal Academy students yesterday. A journal reflection will be posted very soon. We have another full day with the Utpal students, and then we are off to Mandala Resort later this evening. The sky is blue, the Himalayan peaks are radiant and we could not feel more fortunate to be here.
