For some being a guide is a means to make a living, and for those, where passions are involved, they take it to different levels, sometime to the extent of artistic realms. Karma Lethro is first among equals in finding art in the way he conducts, interpreting conventional religious arts that adorns many monasteries and majestic Dzong, the harbinger of conforming religious arts, with artistic perspectives. Leading a tour is where he is at ease hence at home, he says.
He completed his class 12 from higher secondary school in Thimphu in 2005. Subsequently, joined guiding course and finished in 2006. He started as free lance guide and operated for 2 years. Finally joined Wind Horse in 2008.
He likes to read, trek and very fonds of birds. When not working, he goes for birding in his village in Trongsa, birding paradise.

We have recently returned from an amazing 7 day visit to Bhutan. We started the research into Bhutan about a year ago and discovered that we would need to book through a Bhutanese travel company. I initially contacted six companies for information and then worked with three to prepare an itinerary. From the initial contact I got a very good feeling about Wind horse and decided to book with them. They have the advantage of having an office in the Netherlands and in Minnesota, USA. My contact was with Bas in the Netherlands office and he replied to my emails very

Dear Kinga - Now we have been arrived Bangkok safely.Thank you so much for your hospitality, we enjoyed and had memorable experiences during our recent trip.We believe that you will pass our thanks to Karma and Dawa. Karma is expert in Bhutan history and religion. He can explain deeply without tiredness.Dawa is a good driver with excellent driving skill.We are very appreciated their services. Anyway, there are some tiny points we would like to share you for better service next time. 1. Food at Punatsangchhu Cottage was not provided punctually. Dinner should be started at 7.00 p.m. as confirmed but it's late around 15-30 minutes,

Snow Leopard Trek TID 760 ( 3 - 17 Oct,2014) Hello Anand, Thank you so much for setting up a great experience for my husband and me. We had a spectacular time! Our guide, Karma was really knowledgeable, helpful, and, best of all, funny! He was also very gentle and didn't push us. He understood what all our limitations were and encouraged us to do our best. He was very personable and that helped us enjoy the experience more! One thing that we think Windhorse can improve on is making sure that everyone knows what each person's food restrictions are. On a few occasions,

Above The Clouds (Jhomolari & Laya Trek) from 4 Oct to 24 Oct (TID 789) Hi - I have safely returned from Bhutan via Thailand and am still basking in the afterglow from our wonderful experience in Bhutan with Wind Horse. Karma, Sonam, Tenzen and Rinzen were wonderful to be with and we so appreciated the opportunity to meet Jambay and Ugen at Gasa. The Wind Horse customer service was suburb and we were very impressed with the immediate response we received by email and phone. The only recommendation that we all felt necessary was for your guides to have access to

I would like to start by sayings I greatly enjoyed visiting your country and found your compatriots to be very friendly and helpful while we were there.

Our chef and assistants were excellent and very helpful. We did not have a bad meal the entire trip.

Drukyul Walking Tour(April 04-17,2014) TID 740 I am still traveling so this will be brief. Karma was a fantastic guide his knowledge was encyclopedic! He should be paid more as he is an asset to your company. Also Baliman was excellent as well. Could not have been happier with driver and guide. A few suggestions the Dochula restaurant was not the best and we ate there four times! Same menu served two and half of the times. The communication with Minneapolis could have been much quicker, clearer and more responsive. The other women on the trip almost cancelled due to this.

TID 655-Bhutan Traverse from East to West (March 14-April 1,2013) Thank you for the great trip from which I am still going through some serious Bhutan withdrawal. From the initial contact with Ugen then Jambay, my interactions with your company were always positive and your efforts considerate. I wanted a private journey which covered Bhutan from East to West and the itinerary was comprehensive and well planned. My guide Karma Letho and driver Tsering were my eyes and hears into your country with its incredible history deeply interwoven with its unique Buddhist culture which gave me many things to ponder after returning

Dear Ugen, These are very late comments on a wonderful trip we had to Bhutan with Windhorse Tours. My wife Sandi had dreamed of seeing the Himalaya's since she was a little girl. We were very happy with the advanced information that was provided. We were well prepared for the trip. Our Guide and Driver (Karma Letho and Dorji Nedup were great. Karma had a group of varied age and ability and he was able to keep everything moving smoothly. He was very knowledgeable and energetically shared it with the group. Karma was always there with information or a helping hand
