Karma Choden was born in a remote village half way to Haa valley. After completing class XII, Karma obtained a diploma in commercial accounting and worked in a private company for a while. As her interest in tourism grew stronger, Karma decided to train as a cultural tour guide. She loves to interact with different people and share her insights into local traditions and the culture of her beautiful country. Karma is knowledgeable about village livelihoods, local rituals and hospitality practices due to many years she spent on her family farm. She is well aware of the many hardships and responsibilities Bhutanese rural folks face in daily life, especially women. Karma enjoys travelling and hiking and she is interested in photography, music and reading. Karma is a lovely and pleasant travel companion who will share her interesting insights once she opens up.
