Bhutan. Where is Bhutan
Latitude15 is heading to Bhutan again on a trek of several weeks with two Vermonters and two Londoners whom we know. Bhutan is a Constitutional monarchy and is located in the Himalayas between India and China. Their economy is great being host to a new large hydroelectric facility. The capital of Bhutan is Thimphu. The mountains range up to 7000 meters. Trekking in the Himalayas requires very adaptive clothing and Latitude 15 just fits the bill providing light weight warmth both night and day. Spring is relatively warm during the day but nights are quite cold still. So having a Latitude 15 “Beanie” along is good medicine to wear in your sleeping bag at night. Our friends wear Latitude15 shirts pretty much through the entire trip as the shirt develops no odor over several weeks of wear,so if they run into the King in Thimphu they will be well received. Latitude15 is also a great shirt to wear on the plane getting to Bhutan as it keeps you comfortable whether the plane is over warm or too cold. In addition, the silver fiber by it’s anti-static and anti-microbial features keeps the “germs” off you. You do not want to start a long trek over several weeks feeling lousy from the plane ride. Make sure you have safe and comfortable journeys by wearing Latitude15. It will enhance your experience!
