Pema Dhendup

Pema Dhendup is  the one among the few young guns at Wind Horse Tour, Bhutan. He possess an  infectious smile and exuberance that rub off to child and old alike. Unwarily,  he has a mature head on his young shoulder and it is most conspicuous when he is among guests, untying knots of  religion and its intricate iconography with ease and dexterity.
It took him to many different regions in the country to finish his school as his father’s job demanded. This helped to pick up different local dialects of the region. Currently, this stand in good stead for him. In 2011, he completed his Degree in Arts with history as major from Darjeeling, a hill station in India. He knew what he wanted and it was such a easy choice to opt for guide training. He led his first group 2013  at Wind Horse Tours and the rest the guests’ feedbacks and testimonial itself  speak volumes.

He harbours a new found passion for birds, which was ignited when he was doing a tour with bird enthusiast.

    Visiting Bhutan was the trip of a lifetime. I loved the Bhutanese people, always kind and smiling, the atmosphere at the temples and monasteries, the architecture, the artwork (paintings, sculptures, carving, etc), nature (mountains and valleys, rhododendrum starting to bloom !!), .... I am not used to travel with an organized tour, and was a little worried, but it was much better than I could have ever imagined. I would like to thank Ugen, Jambay and all the Windhorse team, for the organization, planning,  professionnalism and the excellent service.  Everything went just perfect. My very special thanks to Pema, for his kindness,

    Dear Ugen, Jambay and the whole Windhorse Team, This is a quick note to thank you all for the support and wonderful vacation we had in Bhutan. We had very high expectations, and the trip was even better than we ever thought it could be. It usually goes by unnoticed when absolutely everything goes right, and we wanted to recognize the effort it takes to provide an excellent service, from the booking process to the moment we left Bhutan. Pema, besides being a great company, has incredible knowledge and social intelligence to skillfully to solve issues without us even noticing - this quality

    Dear Anand Apologies for not replying sooner. Thank you for setting everything up. We were very happy with the whole experience of our Bhutan trip. We always felt we were in good hands and enjoyed the company of both Soman and our driver, Chimi. The way the schedule was arranged worked well and made us appreciate the very different and contrasting areas, from the remoteness of the village life of Jakar with the stunning open plans of the Phovjika valley [Blackneck crane valley] and the busier town life of Punakha, Thimphu and Paro. The highlights were trekking through the Bumthang and Phovjika

  • Highly Flexible Bhutan Tour for Martin North Yorkshire, UK Trip Date:

    Flexible Bhutan Tour This trip was honestly so much more amazing in real life, and far exceeded my original (high)expectations. Thanks to everyone in the office at Windhorse who were always efficient and helpful in answering questions over e-mail, and willing to be flexible and build the itinerary round what I wanted to achieve - this is their greatest strength. They were always willing to say what could be done, while occasionally respectfully reining in my more extreme suggestions, which I now realise after my visit were at times too ambitious for the travel infrastructure of the country. Obviously particular mention for Pema & Tenzing with

    Hi Anand, - I think the trip went well.  I did get sick at one of the hotels from food being incorrectly described.  Pema said he told the hotels in advance of my Celiac condition, and I asked the woman serving the food if there was any wheat in a vegetable dish and she said no.  I asked her to please double check.  She said she asked the chef if there was any wheat in the dish and he told her no.  I got sick that night and was sick for about a day and a half during the trip because

  • I very much enjoyed the entire trip. The Tiger’s Nest was definitely the highlight of the trip. Georgia, USA Trip Date:

    TID - 8736 (April 19-24,2015) Guide - Pema  Our guide, Pema, and our driver Chimmi were both very good. They were both professional, helpful and pleasant. I very much enjoyed the entire trip. The Tiger's Nest was definitely the highlight of the trip. My one criticism would be of the food. It wasn't bad, but it was always basically the same buffet. More opportunities to experience some different variety outside of a hotel restaurant buffet would have been nice.
