Story

Kingdom of Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon - this tiny country straddles the Himalayas. Bhutan is less affected by modern civilization than other countries. It is a feast for the eyes and and eye opening cultural experience.

Bhutan is one of the happiest countries in the world and the happiest country in Asia. With only approximately 800,000 people and over 70% of forests they have managed to protect and conserve 51% of their forests..this is one of the most eco friendly countries with the lowest carbon footprint..

We have a lot to learn from the people of Bhutan especially a lot of gratitude for these people who are protecting our planet and truly care for it.

My 8 year old son and I have decided that as a small gesture of gratitude to the people of Bhutan we will hike up to The Tiger’s Nest Monastery which is a sacred Buddhist site located near Paro, Bhutan. It was constructed in 1692 and is at an elevation of 10,332 ft - it is perched on the cliff, high off the valley floor. We will trek there and back so as to raise funds for the Tarayana Foundation to help build homes for the extremely vulnerable Bhutanese people that live in remote rural areas of the tough Himalayan region. Our aim is to raise funds to help build atleast 3-4 homes for the vulnerable via the Foundation.

    The Bhutanese people are really kind and giving..the people that live in the remote villages of this Himalayan country really struggle with the quality of their houses..the subsidised cost of building a very basic home is INR 75,000 or $1200 and we want your support to build at least 3-4 such houses in 2018..please keep your donations coming in for this noble cause..thanks a lot.

I believe there can be no Philanthropy without Compassion. Hence, each year, I choose a personal project that focuses on making a difference to a cause. in 2018 I am about to hike up to The Tiger’s Nest in Bhutan along with my 8 year old son to raise funds for people of Bhutan..
