    The first week of Nov., 2019, after 2 weeks in Bhutan, I toured Assam with my friend, Linda, and our guide, Anand, who was informative and attentive to our every wish! And our most accommodating driver (graciously stopped for me repeatedly to photograph hay). We saw interesting sights and animals, including plenty of one-horned rhinos, and stayed in fun hotels and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Also learned more about Bhutan from Anand--a bonus.

    As world travelers, my wife and I have taken several organized l tours around the world. Most of them are with a big group of people. The itinerary is usually packed with touristy spots. However, with Wind Horse, it is totally a different level of traveling. It was the experience and culture learning that makes this trip so memorable. We loved both Assam & Eastern Bhutan. The locals were so welcoming and very friendly everywhere we go.This would not be possible without the excellent service from the Wind Horse team.

The landscape of Assam looks like Asian countries with the tea plantations and rice fields. Amand, thank you again for your service, you’re really a good guide who had taken care of us in the detail things.

I was so excited seeing pictures of Majuli island and Kaziranga on the Internet. But I was blown away seeing the places in person, led by WindHorse tour guide Anand. The 5-day WindHorse tour itinerary was just right, giving the opportunity to see Majuli island in one full day and Kaziranga in 2 days. The two places we stayed were

We were impressed by the way our interests were accommodated, and, despite the remote areas visited, how very easily the trip went. This being the case, when I was planning a trip to Sikkim and Assam in November 2017, and saw that Wind Horse organized treks in Sikkim; I immediately contacted them

    One of the most important attributes that your country has...one that you may take for granted...is the fact that your population sees us first as people and secondarily as visitors and lastly, as buyers. We have traveled to so many countries where we have been attacked by hoards of vendors who want us to buy their tee shirts and trinkets. In Bhutan, we were free to explore without having to ward off anybody.  What a joy.

Rinzin Jamtsho

Rinzin Jamtsho is among the fortunate few who have seen tourism in Bhutan growing in stature from close quarter in term of tourism infra structures, growth in tourists etc. To a fair degree he has been part of the process of the slow and cautious opening of tourism in Bhutan to the outside world.

After finishing his bachelor degree from Bhutan, he joined Bhutan Tourism Board, as a man behind the formulation and  application of Bhutan Tourism policies. Sitting behind the desk was hardly the way he perceived his career to roll out, With passage of time,  his innate sense of adventure was asking more questions than he could find  answers to.

Finally, after serving for 13 years as government officer in Tourism Board in a elite capacity, his intrinsic sense of adventure got better of him. He quit and subsequently met Ugen, whose proposals was congenial to the kind of  work he envisioned. He joined Wind Horse Tours in 2008 as a managing partner. He hold the mantle of Promotion & Marketing of Wind Horse office, Thimphu. This jobs takes him far and wides places, sometime as far as London, Berlin, Moscow to attend trade fairs.

In his career spanning under two decades, it took him to Austria, Singapore for studies and training to polish his deep rooted love for adventures and it cultivated  a fresh perspective for Tourism in Bhutan.

He is instrumental  in materialising the long standing collective vision  of Wind Horse Ranch and Riding club, a low carbon footprint products. He is at helm of affairs and being a good horse rider himself, he is at ease at horse ranch, when he is free.

Kinga Dechen

“Being the traveller ourself first” is what Kinga Dechen advocates and guiding philosophy that define him. This trait and wanderlust in him droves him to many places trying to find expression and meaning to his travel craving . Once he said ” Travelling is the best education”. After passing his class 12 from Bhutan, and to take his disposition of travel further up, he enrolled for guide course conducted by Department of Tourism. After completion in 1995, and during the course of journey as a guide, to hone his skills, he relentlessly pursued further towards the new frontiers of Bangok, Thailand, Salburgs in Austria and Israel for training in the arena of Tourism.For him this open up flood gate of new perspectives towards tourism.

He joined office of Wind Horse Tours, Thimphu, Bhutan in 2008 as a local partner, a fitting tribute to company’s core philosophy. Now, he is man behind every tours that are conducted in Bhutan, in other words he is operational head.

During his formative year in his village, birds piqued his interest and mesmerise him especially by the birds distinct call and sound . He knew the name of birds locally by then, later he joined birding workshop and classes to delve deeper into his passion. Since then he has led countless number of birding tour across every nook and corner of the country.

More often than not, the call of the quaint villages, wilderness of trek is so intense that he set aside his desk works and leads the tour, this is how or the only way he knows to unwind himself from stress of daily life.

Ugen Tshering

Ugen Tshering is the co-founder of Wind Horse Tours. In cold wintry night of 1997, over a log fire in lawn of hotel in Thimphu, along with other guides, the seed of Wind Horse Tours was first sown, and in 1998, it came to life. By that time, as a guide, Ugen had traversed not only nook and corners of Bhutan, but as Tour Leader and Guide, he also also led several trips in southeast Asia, China and central Asia.  He spent several years living and travelling in India and Nepal.

He attended his school in Bhutan and went to USA to pursue further Studies. The lighter story goes that he was bitten by travel bug when he was a kid. The travel exuberance and to seek the unknown was the driving force that took him to places. In 1999, he relocated himself with his family to Minneapolis in USA and set up Wind Horse sale office . With time  his wanderlust hasn’t diminished, he still travels extensively to attend trade fair in London, Berlin, Moscow. And yearly visit to Bhutan to take stock of changes that the places have seen.

He came through ranks, with modest beginning as guide, and with time in any trade comes the experience. And this is what set him apart from the rest. His insights and knowledge is what makes a difference when he frames an itinerary.
