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.

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.
For some reasons those who wish to skip Taktsang hike, we take them to excursion to quaint and tranquil Haa valley.

For Dechen Duba, nothing is much more fulfilling than being in tour with guests. He comes a long way from quaint village of Mongar to the capital city of Thimphu. It wasn’t a easy journey, nothing was served on a platter. He earned every bit of rave review from guests through his hard work and dedication. His favourite line “Hard works beats talent”.
To be part of tourism fraternity was what he desired most, he made a splash headlong after class 12 by enrolling for Tourism and management course. After its completion, he joined Wind Horse in 2013 and has been leading groups umpteen times.
You may find him in basketball court playing hard, when he is not leading the group.
Chencho Dem is a mother, doting wife and a travel guide. Its a conventional wisdom that a person should keep home front in harmony to achieve a better result at work, she manage all with perfection, no wonder its clearly reflects on the way she conduct the tours with smile and cheerfulness at large.
After finishing her class 12 from Thimphu in 2010, though there were varied options but she chose to pursue Hotel Management and tourism programme for 2 years. Rather than being behind the desk, she felt she could expressed better being in field. She led many tours as freelance guide for Aman Kora and finally joined Wind Horse Tours in 2014. She is also among the few lady guides in the country who has treaded upon most of the trekking routes in Bhutan.
Kezang is a graduate from Gedu Business School college in Bhutan, but he was always interested in the Buddhist Philosophy, which made him alter his ambition to being a tour Guide.
He is super polite and Buddhist to the core, because his parents and their parents were all affliliated to a monastery as a Lama etc. He comes from Dramtse region, between Mongaer and Trashigang.
Former graduate in arts from Shillong, a hill town in North East India.On a first impression Kinley Tenzin may concede as man of few words. But there is much more than meet the eye.Beneath his exterior he is a power house of informations. He speak english eloquently and once in tour he is altogether a different person. A person filled with driving passion and articulation. He says ” He aspires to transform idea of guests into great experiences”
He is big time book reader and doesn’t have any genre in particular. He read anything that comes his way. He claim that book have open door to a complete new world. If not reading, then he is mostly seen in his mountain bike traversing rough terrain within the vicinity of Thimphu.
