Today, Bhutan or the land of the Thunder Dragon is one of the most highly acclaimed travel destinations in the world. This is a land of remarkable natural beauty with a pristine and intact environment and a friendly, tradition-bound people. To the discerning international traveler, Bhutan has become an exotic and enticing final frontier. Bhutan’s present travel status comes as no surprise given that this tiny kingdom, the size of Switzerland, was zealously sequestered from the world for centuries. Travel to Bhutan is still regulated through a policy of high value tourism and the door to this mythical Buddhist kingdom was opened only three decades ago.
Come see, before it changes.
My wife and I recently visited Bhutan for an eight day cultural tour followed by a six day trek. I don’t ordinarily write reviews, but our experience with Bhutan Travelers was deeply gratifying and inspiring. Both of us felt consistently attended to in a variety of ways, and our needs were always considered. I had not done much research about Bhutan Travelers, but a good friend gave the company a glowing recommendation and he suggested that we request Karma Tashi as our guide. Karma is an expert in local history and was always willing to engage in conversation about his beloved country and culture. We never felt overwhelmed by the amount of information or cultural stories that were shared with us.
Bhutan was an amazing place to visit and we will always feel grateful to Karma and the staff at Bhutan Travelers for their generosity of spirit and kindness. I highly, highly recommend this company and these dedicated people for your journey to Bhutan.
