A journey to Bhutan – the kingdom of orchids …

… that’s what club members & guests could experience at first hand at our club meeting in September during the exciting lecture by Dr. Heiko Hentrich. Breathtaking pictures of the nature, the country & the people alternated with many anecdotes about the way of life and culture in the small Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas.

Bhutan is known for its gross national happiness, gentle tourism and cultural treasures – the orchids and araceae species native to the country make it an insider’s tip. From 14. – 29.5.2023 you have the opportunity to participate in a trip to Bhutan guided by Dr. Heiko Hentrich. You can find more details here.

We have already planned another “lecture-trip” with Dr. Heiko Hentrich, which will take us further inland to Bhutan, for a society evening in 2023.
