Travel has been John’s passion since he was a summer exchange student in Peru during high school. A 2007 trip to Bhutan changed his life, so struck with the beauty of Bhutan, its wonderful people and the unique feel of the country that he founded Champaca Journeys.

Guide - Bhutan

Nima is from remote eastern Bhutan and moved to Thimphu after finishing his studies. He is an inveterate bird watcher and can identify most of Bhutan's many species of birds by sight and sound. Not only is he an excellent guide and naturalist, he is also one of the few motorcycle guides in Bhutan.
