Karma Bhotia in 2014 led a 6-day trek to a village tucked against the Himalayas in northeastern Nepal near tibet, not long ago off limits to foreigners. For Karma it was an emotional return to his home village, which he had not seen for 25 years. For his 12 friends from his current home of Durango, Colorado, it was a magical and mystical journey to a land that can no longer hide from 21st century progress. The foundation created by Karma and his wife, Jyamu, is providing educational and other opportunities to the people of the Bhotkhola region, and this trip was the beginning of that effort. “Good Karma” tells the story of the group’s heart-warming mission. It is being released
just as a devastating earthquake has rocked Nepal, one of the world’s friendliest- and poorest – countries.
