I can't thank you enough for all your help to make my trip to Bhutan and Nepal an amazing experience. You always responded to my (many) questions so quickly that it almost seemed that you really weren't half a world away. You were wonderful through all the changes that I and other sources through at you; through it all you planned the perfect itinerary. The guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and courteous; I feel I have made new friends with each and every one of them. The accommodations were outstanding everywhere and you were able to get me into all the special events I want to attend, with your guidance it really was the trip of a lifetime!
As the COO of a major travel company I will make sure my agents and clients know to contact you for the perfect Himalayan journey.
Again, many, many thanx for everything!Daniel Hanes
Bhutan is a unique experience any month of the year, but especially during winter, when you can have Bhutan to yourself. From November to February days are clear with intensely blue sky, bright sunshine melts the nighttime frost and by 9 o' clock in the morning the nippy chill is out of the air, and a pleasant winter day arrives. Bhutan promises to charm you with an unspoiled ancient landscape and quietly challenges your view of the world all year round, and the following itinerary is but an introduction into the Kingdom of the Clouds and can be customized per your wishes.
