Six Rossland locals took a trip to the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan in 2011 and will be showing their journey in a 45 minute presentation next week.

Admission for the event is by donation and will go towards three causes: supporting the monks that the travellers met in Bhutan; the West Kootenay Friends of Refugees, who are raising money to resettle two Burmese families; and the Rouge Gallery.

The show is back by popular demand, and covers culture, trekking, food, local people and more.

The show starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday March 27, at the Rouge Gallery.
