HIMALAYAN WONDERLAND

Imagine a country where a land’s worth is measured differently — think Gross National Happiness instead of Gross Domestic Product. Now stop dreaming, because you are in the unexplored mountain kingdom of Bhutan. Beauty and wisdom are revealed at each dzong, every gompa, and most incredibly, in the eyes of every smiling Buddhist monk you meet. On treks through remote trails and visits to Paro, Thimphu, and Punakha. Nature lovers, photographers, and culture junkies will uncover a purity of culture, traditions, and kindness.

I was born in the central region of Bhutan, where the culture and the history are vibrant and the land is beautiful. I grew up hearing the stories of the places around me, from no other than my father, who is a Tourist Guide too.

I began my career as a tour guide after working with my father in his tour company. This enabled me to expand my knowledge and explore the world, making me appreciate the beauty of my country. For more than a decade now, I have spent my good years working as a tour guide, mountain biker, and photographer with various tour operators in Bhutan.

It was an incredible experience meeting tourists from every corner of the world, as well as gaining my own experience travelling to several places. I love to travel and have been to many parts of Asia.I believe people should travel to gain new experiences in life. It gives you the chance to enjoy the local living style, taking photos with like-minded people, or simply to indulge yourself in a well deserved luxury holiday.

I enjoy every tour as a new and unique experience. Basic knowledge of flora & fauna identification, bird watching, and textiles, as well as a sound knowledge of religious sites and adventure travel in Bhutan. This turns every journey into something new, something fascinating.

I am very happy to welcome you to my country, to show you its wonders and help you get in touch with its beauty. I am seeing my dream of a travel agency that truly connects Bhutan to people from all over the world, come true.

It’s my pleasure to turn your wishes into reality!
