This Wilderness Medicine CME course takes place in the remote Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan. It is a country of mountains, untouched forests, and fortified monasteries that lies nestled in the high Himalaya. A country the size of Switzerland with a population of less than one million, it vigilantly protects its ancient traditions, religion, and culture. Traveling to Bhutan is like visiting Nepal or Tibet forty years ago. National Geographic has called it the last great paradise on earth, or "Shangri-La."

Our CME adventure will take us on a journey that will travel through the heart of Bhutan visiting the famous monasteries and villages at Paro, Thimphu, Bumthang, Trongsa, and Punakha. We will cross the 10,200 foot Dochu La Pass with its spectacular views of Bhutan's Himalaya as we travel from Thimphu to the famous Punakha monastery.

The culmination of our journey will come at the end of our trip when we hike for 3 hours to visit the "Tigers Nest" of Taktsang, the most famous and sacred of Bhutan's monasteries, perched on side of a sheer cliff 3,000 ft above the Paro valley. No other monastery can match the grandeur of Takstang's natural setting. This wilderness medicine course is designed for the active traveler. Bhutan's spectacular mountain scenery provides the perfect setting for day hikers to explore its remote villages and mountain paths.
