Zegrahm Expeditions Arranges Private Meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Guests on Spirit of Himalayas Tour Surprised by Expedition Leader with Special Meeting 

Seattle, WA (June 6, 2017) – Zegrahm Expeditions, the world leader in small ship cruises and adventure travel, recently surprised guests on its Spirit of the Himalayas expedition with a private visit with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

While exploring Dharamsala, the Indian city in the Kangra Valley which is home to the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government’s parliament-in-exile, the Zegrahm group was part of a 100-person gathering, followed by a private meeting in which travelers could shake hands and take photos with the Dalai Lama. With the help of local connections, the meeting was arranged by Zegrahm expedition leader, Gary Wintz, who has deep roots in the region and was one of the first Westerners to reside in Tibet after the communist Chinese occupation, and has met the Dalai Lama previously.

“We are so pleased to provide our guests with this life-changing experience; one that will no doubt be a highlight of the trip, and a memory that will live on long after the trip has ended,” said Zegrahm President, Van Perry. “Being able to surprise and delight our guests in this way is what we strive to do on each and every expedition, and is what, I believe, makes traveling with Zegrahm so special.”
