Growth in Tourism in Bhutan has also its share of impact on young minds. With tourists freely moving around, the curiosities to know them, talk to them holds ground firmly on young minds . Namgay is one among many youth whose imagination was captured by razzmatazz of tourism.
He has his career goal cut out, he could have easily opted for some comfortable desk jobs, after passing out in flying colours from prestigious St Joseph college Darjeeling in 2010 but he chose to pursue his dream, he loved to be in field, among the guests, so it was only matter of time to enroll for guiding course.
His first foray into job was in 2013 at Wind Horse Tours and still he is going great guns. Feed Backs from guests that he led are great testimonial to his dedication.
He prodigiously read books that open up new frontiers and interaction with guests coupled with sound command of English takes his outlook towards learning and experiences altogether to different height.

I loved almost everything about our trek. Our guide, Namgye, was fantastic. He answered all of our questions, instructed us skillfully through the trekking, had a great feel for guiding each one of us individually as well as guiding us as a group. The cook, Mon, made delicious and nutritious meals and allowed me to watch him cook. His momos were fantastic. All the assistants were helpful and so kind. The pony masters were also talented and so fun! However, I would recommend getting new mats. The mats were pretty thin. I’d recommend

Dear Anand, Thank you for checking in with me about the trip. I have been meaning to write reviews for Tripadvisor, but there is so much in my mind I haven't been able to get it done yet. The trip was a peak experience of my life. My daughters (plus one boyfriend) and I loved it. Namgyel was an exceptionally good guide and he took great care of us every day. The trekking staff was excellent, especially the food service. The tents were very good in spite of difficult weather most days. I think the itinerary Windhorse prepared was perfect for our

Hi Anand, I really enjoyed my trip quite a lot. Namgay and Yamay were both terrific. And the support team at Wind Horse was really great and answered all my questions. My only feedback would be that perhaps you should add a version of the trip that includes more hiking. It’s a lot of sightseeing and the day could have been broken up a bit with more walking/hiking/etc. We got back to the hotels quite early and in some of places there isn’t much to do. A lot of people I am sure enjoy the rest and relaxation but others may appreciate

Jambay: It was a pleasure meeting you when we were in Paro in mid-February. We are back in the United States as of early March just in time for the end of winter in Maine with three late snowstorms totaling 65 cm of snow. But spring has finally arrived and temperatures are reaching 6 degrees Celsius during the day. The wonderful Wind Horse book on Bhutan that you gave us sits proudly on our coffee table. It’s a treasure and reminds us of our memorable trip every time we look at it. First. Thank you for the help you, Anand along with Ugen

As promised I let you know our comments about the trip. Everything was good organised, the trekking was what we expected, food was very good and people so nice. Hotel was in the average even if we normally preferred small one, where you get in contact with the owner and the other guests, but, I know, we were too late for this kind of place. The only one thing for our point of view that you could improve is the choice of restaurants. Namgay most of the time proposed us for lunch restaurants only for tourists. For us find good food and nice places

Ugen, we have now returned from the wonderful trip you planned for us. Excepting an unexpected snow storm everything worked great. We enjoyed the Radisson very much for our one night layover in Delhi on the way to Bhutan, and Druk air was able to ticket our luggage directly to Chicago via our Air India flight, making that much more convenient. Our guide Namgay was charming and a pleasure to be with. I would be happy to share more details with you but for now I wanted to touch base and thank you again. We look forward to planing further trips with

Hi Anand, Firstly, apologies for my late response. It's been a particularly busy time at work and I've had 3 days off in the past month! Nevertheless, enough excuses and time for my thoughts. I first came to know about Bhutan when reading this website about the 25 least visited countries in the world a year or two ago. I like to go off the beaten path, and the idea of an entire country with centuries of history, it's own unique culture, people, and way of life, can exist with so many people not even knowing about it's existence is surreal to

Hi Anand, Thank you for your email. Our trip was excellent in every respect and we have no hesitation in recommending a holiday in Bhutan with Wind Horse to all our friends. From the start: • Ugen was extremely helpful in assisting us to plan our two week trip taking into account our interests • The pre departure information was very comprehensive and useful • All the documentation arrived in a timely manner and Jambay answered any queries very promptly • Our guide, Namgay, was excellent – very knowledgeable and friendly and his English was very good. • Our drivers (Tenzin around Paro, and Chimmi for the rest

Hi Anand, Apologies for taking so long to write this review. We did a tour with Wind Horse in January 2016 (Trip ID 8855) as part of our honeymoon. We had a wonderful time! The Wind Horse staff was very helpful, from booking the tour, flights and visas with Ugen in the Minnesota office to working with our guide, Namgyel, and our driver, Dawa Tshering, in Bhutan. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish. Namgyel was a great guide - friendly and full of information and suggestions for extra sights. He was a big part of making our trip so enjoyable. He

Anand, Apologies for the belated reply and not having shared a few words re: our experience earlier. After we returned to NYC, we just resumed our routine and our promise slowly faded. Alas, it is not lost. See it below. In a few words, we loved our trip to Bhutan. We went to Tibet in 2013 and could notice that the two regions share a lot of similarities: strong Buddhism faith, the Himalayas, blue never ending sky and humble people. However, the "small things" found in Bhutan made it unique and I dare say more special than Tibet in our view: the
