11 January, Lampelri. Nature Recreation and Ecotourism Division (NRED), Department of Forests and Park Services organised a familiarisation trip to The Royal Botanical Park in Lampelri for tour operators and guides. The visit aimed to create awareness of the facilities and services available at the park. With this trip, it is expected that the tour operators and guides will now include visits to The Royal Botanic Park in their itineraries.
Mrs Pat Darlington, an Australian Volunteer for Environment Education, facilitated the guide tour to Serichu track, rhododendron garden, bamboo grove, orchid house, yak camp, Baritsho Lake and the camp site. The guided trip included bird watching and an introduction to a beautiful broad-leaved forest of rhododendron, oak, breech and other plants present at the park to help tour guides learn about Bhutan’s natural environment and conservation as well as inspire support for the preservation of our country’s rich ecological and cultural heritage.
