Pema Namgay

From the outset, Pema Namgyal knew what he wanted to do in life. He love to keep things simple. Right after finishing his Class 12 from school in Thimphu in 2004, he joined guiding course to aspire to be a guide. Initially he started as cultural guide but with time, he felt more connected with wilderness, he did course for trek in 2008.

After a fruitful experiences with other companies, he joined Wind Horse Tours in 2010. He has led many treks, and I seriously doubt, if there are any tourist trails that he hasn’t tread upon. One trek that stand out is challenging Snowman Trek, he comes highly recommended for this. In October, 2014 he successfully completed Snowman trek with 4 guests.

    Steve and I really enjoyed our trip to Bhutan. Highlights for us was visiting the art school, textile museum and paper making factory in Thimphu. The hotel was lovely but the downside was not being able to sleep because of the many dogs barking in the square. The fort at Punakha was amazing. The four of us were all surprised when Pema explained that we would have a 6 hour car drive the following day to the Ha Valley - as it was stated in the itinerary it was 3 hours. However, Pema did explain that was the distance from the temple

    On our 9-day tour in November my husband and I had an amazing time! We were particularly blown away by the temples, unspoiled landscapes, and the kindness of the local people of Bhutan! The accommodations were very comfortable - we especially loved our hotel up in the hillside in Punakha! We also loved touring all of the temples and dzongs, and really appreciated the patience and wisdom of our guide Pema, who was also very willing to go on all of the hikes that my husband insisted on! Another highlight was visiting the Artist College in Thimphu - as a

    Dear Anand, Thank you for your email. We have finally adjusted to the time changes, and are settled in back home. First, we want to thank you and your staff for such a wonderful trip. Our trip included India and Nepal, but our time in Bhutan will always stand out as the highlight. We also want to thank Pema and Sonam for their knowledgeable and friendly service. Pema was especially helpful to me, since I suffered a fractured ankle in September was sometimes a little less than sure-footed. He made sure to steady me up and down stairs, as well as on the

    In general I`m still amazed by what I was able to experience. I´ve never expected anything like this. It was one of the best countries I´ve seen and experiences I´ve made. I`m very grateful I was able to do this journey. A big Kadrinchhe la to you and to Wind horse for putting this together for me.

    A little late to responding to this but just wanted to say that the trip was fabulously planned and organised. From the beginning, we were set up with the packing list, the itinerary etc. Pema was an amazing guide - always happy to answer our questions and support us through the toughest parts of the hike. The rest of the crew was also incredible - so SO helpful. The food was fantastic and all of the camping gear was excellent. Thanks for such a great adventure! TID 8990

    Of course see'ing the snow leopard was the highlight!  Pema, our guide, added to the experience with his amiable personality and amusing stories. If I had to give constructive criticism, I would say the food could have been more interesting at the Thimphu Hotel Restaurant, named Swiss Restaurant.  My modest dissatisfaction with food could also have been because I never had Swiss food before.  :P rob TID 8990

    Snowman Trek - once in a lifetime experience. My husband and I have recently completed the Snowman trek in Bhutan led by Wind Horse tour company and both felt that we had an amazing experience. One of the best trips we have ever had. Before the trek we read that things can be slow and somewhat bumpy in Bhutan and contingency days are must. So we were ready for "things to happen". But we worried for nothing. Wind Horse has organised the trek to the last detail. The crew was very professional and friendly, the service was outstanding, food delicious, tents comfy

    June 7, 2017 The lure to travel to and experience Bhutan began more than 20 years ago when its relative isolation lent it an “other-worldly Last Shangri-la” sheen. Over the years, the call became even more pronounced as Druk Yul (a.k.a the Land of the ThunderDragon) adopted the seemingly abstract vision of measuring Gross DomesticHappiness versus Gross Domestic Product to gauge its economic development and the quality of life of its people. More recently, Bhutan’s Constitution which mandates that it maintain no less than 60% forest cover, makes it a carbon negative country. At present, Bhutan’s forest cover which approximates 72%

    Dear Anand — I am sorry that I am so slow in giving you a report on the trip to Bhutan that my son, Peter, daughter-in-law, Martha and I made to Bhutan the first of April.  We did the cultural tour of Bhutan first and then Peter and Martha stayed on to do the Jomolhari trek.  Our guides were Pema, Tshering, and wonderful driver, Guddu.  Thank you to all of you for a wonderful trip.  I will let Peter and Martha speak for themselves but I enjoyed the trip thoroughly.  Pema was so well informed and obviously so dedicated to

    I have traveled with Windhorse Tours in April 2017 for Bhutan Festivals tour and was very happy with the quality of the services the company provided. The booking process was very smooth and Ugen was always very responsive to answer any questions I had. The tour itself was very well organized and run. The quality of the transportation provided was great; both our guides, Pema and Tchering, and our driver, Guddu, were superb and took a great care of the group throughout our tour. The accommodations provided were very good and comfortable and service at the hotels was very good. One
