The tiny village of Langtang was a vibrant home to a unique community of Tibetan Buddhists. In the space of minutes, this village was obliterated by the 25 April, 7.8 magnitude earthquake, which was followed by a kilometre long avalanche that killed nearly 200 of this small community. The event will also showcase a photographic archive that was compiled over several years of ethnographic and heritage fieldwork in Langtang, as well as Himalayan crafts and a raffle Please join us for wine and canapés as you share our memories of Langtang. Proceeds from the event will go toward rebuilding the lives of the survivors of this tragedy.

Speakers: We are very pleased to announce Tim Macartney-Snape (mountaineer and author) as our guest speaker for the evening.
