Bhutan discovery - Sep 22 - Sep 29, 2018

Traveler: Iain L. - Local specialist: Vishal Pradhan

Very enjoyable and well organised trip. Thank you Vishal. Hotels exceeded my expectations. Guide Younten was very effective and looked after everything without fail. I did not catch everything he told us but that was mainly due to my deafness. The driver Sonam was safe and alert at all times and despite challenging mountain roads I never felt nervous. The Hikes were just wonderful although the altitude and my old age made them fairly tough.

We sometimes wished for additional activities between 3.30 and 6 pm. I think many customers would have been happy with the free time and we would have been happy to have a swim but hotels do not have pools. Of course the highlight was Tigers nest but the Simply Bhutan experience was also fun and informative. The Archery and Darts were also a lot of fun albeit seemed a bit dangerous by european health and safety standards.

Dear Iain,

Thank you for this lovely feedback and the opportunity to host you. We are glad to hear that you had a great time with your son. I am certain Yonten and sonam would be thrilled to hear about your feedbacks.

Duly noted your constructive comments, truly appreciate it. Going forward we will certainly provide background information on the traditional archery’s and Khuru. Tourism infrastructure stills remains rudimentary and hopefully our hotel infrastructure will come up to that level soon.

Take care and hope to host another trip soon.

With fond memories and best regards Sonam
