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.

    The whole process of booking and arranging my personalised trip to Bhutan was very efficient and enabled me to include visits I was personally interested in. My guide, Tshering Dhendup, was very knowledgeable about the history and places we visited and if he didn’t know any answer to my innumerable questions, he soon found out from other staff members. He particularly went out of his way to source a book highlighting the Arts and Crafts of Bhutan for me and arranging a visit to a school where his cousin was a teacher. He was happy to rearrange a day’s  programme

    We had a great trip, fantastic weather, good hotels and a wonderful trek. Thanks for checking on us. Program was pretty good, not too hectic yet a lot of impressions - just as we wanted it. The team was also great, no complaints. Super driver Jigme (!) , super trek team (cook was amazing) and a guide that was really fun to be with. So all in all I believe a real good trip, well organized and no complaints. Thanks. One thing perhaps as an improvement area - while we did like to be around with "Timepass", our guide (he is a fun guy to

    Our Party of 4 visited Bhutan in October 2018. Our Guide, Pema Gyeltshen was always attentive, very punctual & professional and always helpful. When we went to Tiger's Nest Monastery, his calm demeanour and knowledge of the terrain helped us immensely. We descended when it was dark and it would have been very difficult without his help. Our Driver Dawa Tshring drove long distances carefully & never kept us waiting. We always felt safe with his driving. Thank you for making our trip enjoyable and memorable.

    Hi Anand! I hope the tipping issue went ok…if anything, I tipped high…but for great service, so ok with me. The trip went very well, from my perspective.  I was so excited to cross that high pass!  I don’t know if you heard about the eldest queen mother visit in the monastery.  She said it was “auspicious” that no one else signed up for the tour, and she turned out to be right.  I had trouble on parts of the descents—(a) I HATE exposure and (b) trail rocky, scree, “kneebanger,” slippery that I needed to do slowly to protect knees and out

    I have traveled a lot--around 130 countries--and I almost never use an organized tour. I thought I didn't like them. But this trip changed my mind. Mr. Pema, my guide, was impeccable, as was my driver, Mr. Ugee. They anticipated my every need, were beautifully friendly and polite and quite interesting people. I felt like I was traveling with friends. Mr. Pema was very skillful and knowledgeable as a guide to both the sites and the culture, and we had philosophical as well as historical conversations of some depth. Windhorse made all the arrangements painless, kept in touch just enough, and

    "Our trip to Bhutan was globally above expectation and will stay in our minds for a long time. The program was perfect, except for the last night planned in thimpu, but Pema kindly changed it on our request (to Paro). We were also satisfied of our guide and driver who always did their best to answer our needs and expectations. We particularly had a lot of fun playing darts and archery with them the last day: this kind of event should be included in all your trips! We were also satisfied of the entire process with wind horse and will recommend it

    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
