A local explorer has been invited by the Bhutanese royal family to help develop the tourist industry of Bhutan.

Internationally renowned kayaker Anthony Eddies-Davies, whose company Live the Adventure is based in Stottesdon, made his first kayaking trip to the Himalayan region 21 years ago. Together with fellow National Geographic explorer Gerry Moffat, the pair have mapped Bhutan’s major rivers, and trained local people as guides, paving the way for a sustainable Bhutanese adventure travel industry.

Mr Eddies-Davies said: “The hidden Buddhist kingdom is one of the remaining untouched and bio diverse regions on the planet. The beauty of the area is staggering, with abundant wildlife.”
