Bhutan Trekking Team
Bhutan Trek Guides & crew members of Wind Horse Tours
Unlike most other companies in Bhutan, we do not sub-contract our trekking operations. Whether it is individual or group, all our treks are serviced by ourselves. Wind Horse Treks are accompanied by the best local team you can get in Bhutan. The crew, include one experienced Trekking Guide, a well trained and experienced cook and there will be one or more ‘waiters’ who serve food, handle the kitchen chores and set up camps. They are in addition to the horsemen or Yakmen, who also pitch in. For larger groups, the number of crew member and horseman also increases. Our trekking crews are organized into teams and they have been applauded for their professionalism and friendliness. No one has ever left Bhutan trek without appreciating and making friendship with our trekking team.
