The founder of the „Friends of Bhutan: Czech Republic“, Lilia Khousnoutdinova is not idle in deepening the relationship with Bhutan. She has taken part in the literary festival „Mountain Echoes“ which was held in the capital of Bhutan, Thimphu on 24.-27.8. 2017, in the patronage of Her Majesty the Royal Queen Mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck. It was a tremendous honour for her that she was able to moderate this famous festival and at the same time, she was one of almost seventy speakers.
This year was the 8th edition of this literary festival, which originated as an initiative of the India-Bhutan Foundation. The festival brings together writers, historians, environmentalists, scholars, photographers, poets, musicians, artists and film-makers to engage in a cultural dialogue, share stories, create memories and spend three blissful days in the mountains.
