A graduate of Motithang High School in Thimphu, Khandu Dorji has been guiding since 1983, and over the course of his career has trekked nearly every route in Bhutan. He also participated in a three-month intensive mountaineering course conducted by the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and led a mountaineering expedition with famous Everest climber Junko Tabei. Khandu's travels have taken him to many places outside Bhutan, including Switzerland, the UK, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand. Khandu is a wonderful guide with a deep knowledge of Bhutan's ancient culture as well as its rich natural history.
Khandu was beyond amazing—knowledgeable, caring, passionate about Bhutan. It was a privilege to have him as our leader.Felice Z., Stamford, CT
