Dear Anand, Thanks for reaching out to me. My first trip to Bhutan was fantastic. In particular, coming from Dhaka, the place was peaceful and civilised (I know I had some issues with public loos - Rebekah teased me a lot on this). Bhutan reminds me of 40-50 years ago rural Japan, though you might have no clue. I think the schedule was very good, well paced, your staff were fantastic. I have no complain. I was happy in 'breaking records' of going up and down of Taktsang, ha ha. I wish I could have stayed more but my holiday was

Dear Wind Horse Tours, Please excuse this belated note concerning our Paro tour 30Nov-03Dec 2014, as we have been quite busy since our trip to Bhutan. We are writing just to let you know how very much we enjoyed our 3 days in Paro and how well-organized everything was. We managed to pack quite a bit into our time, including visits to several temples and monasteries, hiking to the nunnery near Chele-la and to Tiger's Nest, and a wonderful visit to our guide's farm near Paro. Our dinner the last night at a restaurant in Paro was fabulous. Although the Tashi

TID 644 Bhutan Tour from 28 Sept - 02 Oct 2013 Bhutan was one of the places I visited on my trip around the world. It was not only the most beautiful country, it was the best experience I had. With the most pleasant people and the best service. Your selection of hotels were good although I liked Hotel Druk better. The guide and driver Mr Soman and Mr Soman were outstanding and were largely responsible for providing a world class experience When I return I will be calling Windhorse and will recommend you without reservation to anyone who asks. Thank you
Paro Festival Trip, March 2010 - Dear Ugen, We returned to Hungary from our trip to Bhutan and Nepal a month ago, but I had to catch up with quite a few things, so I am writing now to thank you for organizing this memorable trip to Bhutan. Our guide Kado and driver Pema did not spare any effort to make the trip smooth and in spite of the relatively short time we could complete our program as planned. Kado is very knowledgable about history and Buddhism and shared many interesting facts and information. He organized very well our schedule, even

Dear Ugen, We have been busy and suddenly it was November and we still hadn't replied. Bhutan was amazing and we had a wonderful time. We would have liked to stay there for a longer period of time, unfortunately it is pretty expensive. However, next time we would probably like to visit some areas in the east part of Bhutan. Sending some pictures from our trip as well. Regards, Lars & Emil (4 days tour of Bhutan in June, 2009)

Trip of a Life Time: 18-21 April 2002 Going to Bhutan was like going back in time, a gentle country and gentle people, where one encountered peace, and tranquility, as mists intrigue settles in at eventide later hiding a happy good morning where the sun rises over the pine clad mountains. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip arranged by Wind Horse Tours, Treks & Expeditions. Feel free to contact us for any comments.

Short visit to Bhutan
Highlight of Paro & Thimphu
This is shortest tour we have on our shelves. Yet it covers comprehensively two most importantly town in western Bhutan – Thimphu and Paro.
These towns flourish on verdant valley that houses major sightseeing attractions in the country. And they epitomise the perfect harmony of modernity with traditional and cultural heritage.
Thimphu, revamped capital of modern Bhutan lies in the temperate valley at about 7,500ft, with about 100,000 people. It houses many of Bhutan’s tourists attractions, vibrant and colourful markets, including age-old monasteries and fortresses.
The serene Paro valley, except at the town centre with cluster of close traditional houses. The next door is more like a typical village with scattered houses in elongated Paro valleys with terraced field, with chimney emitting wooden smoke, and at closer look and encounter with people, a countenance of contentment, peace irrespective of their social status become more pronounced!
Paro valley has one of most beautiful iconic attractions, Taktsang or Tiger’s nest Monastery and hike into it which is perched precariously on cliff can be a very rewarding experiences.
