Journey through the Mystical Himalayas

When

Description

When dreaming about exotic destinations nothing quite captures the imagination like a trip to the Himalayas. A far away land filled with mystery, rich cultural heritage, and of course great photo ops! Come live the adventure with our own Jim Knapp as he shares his outstanding images from his recent photographic expedition through the countries of Bhutan, Nepal and Tibet.

"We began our trip in Bhutan, some times called “The last Shangri-La”, where we climbed to the Tigers Nest, a monastery on the side of a mountain, visited elaborate temples-fortresses and experienced amazing Himalayan scenery. In Nepal we trekked part of the Annapurna Range and rafted down the Seti River exploring the villages and meeting the local people along the way. We also traveled to the rain forest in Nepal to go on a safari to see the local wildlife. We ended our journey in Tibet were we visited the Potala Palace, once the winter home of the Dalai Lama, and explored the beautiful Himalayas as we traveled to over 16,000 feet to see the glaciers lakes."

Guests are always welcome at our meetings! Please be aware that there is a $5 per person guest fee. Please bring cash or check. As always, GRCC Members are always free!

Jim Knapp Biography

I bought my first SLR camera when I was stationed in Bangkok, Thailand in 1971, just before I went to India and Nepal for the first time. For the next forty years I was too busy with family and work to pursue photography as a hobby. When I retired I purchased a DSLR camera and returned to photography in 2011.
