Bart Jordans was born in Holland. Spending with his parents many holidays in the Alps and during his time as a student in Amsterdam, visiting climbing crags and the Alps again and again, he built up an enormous respect and love for the mountains. In 1984 he had his first chance to visit the Himalayas. By that time Bart had been already guiding several groups through the Swiss and Austrian Alps and became a lead climber on rock. After his first visit to the Himalayas he got hooked to the area. Soon he started guiding for several UK based companies in Pakistan, India, Nepal and later Bhutan. More then 80 trips have been guided by Bart. Bart started to concentrate on Bhutan and was lucky to live in the country from September 1999 till December 2003 together with his wife and two small children. His Danish wife, whom he met in Nepal, worked in Bhutan in a Danish/Bhutanese government project. During this period in Bhutan Bart collected more details on several areas of the Kingdom and visited as many as possible corners. A unique circumstance ending in a unique guidebook: the first ever trekking guide book on the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan.
