Yamraj Karki

Some guests remarked ” Travelling around in Bhutan on vehicle on its sinuous roads is itself adventure of sort” For a great trip in Bhutan, a comfortable transport and a good driver is paramount. Yamraj Karki learnt driving at a very young age. In fact his older brother Guddu, who also works in Wind Horse Tours has been instrumental in teaching  this craft.

Right after passing his class 10, he knew pretty well to drive but even though he joined driving school to obtain his licence in 2005. In the same years he joined Wind Horse Tours.

  • Introduction to Bhutan for Andrew & Family USA Trip Date:

    Dear Anand, Please excuse this belated note. My husband Andrew has been quite busy with work, so I decided to respond on my family's behalf. All in all, our 7 days in Bhutan were truly remarkable. The pastoral and rugged beauty of the country will stay with us for a long time.  Our guide Tashi was the ideal match for our family of three. He was engaging and informative without being garrulous. Also, he was so thoughtful to arrange a birthday cake for our daughter on the day of our arrival because we landed in Bhutan on her 13th birthday. The royal

    TID 8595 -May 13 - 29,2015 (Yonten Phuntsho - Guide) Dear Jambay,  Thank you to all at Windhorse for such a wonderful trip! We all enjoyed our visit, and Yonten and Yumraj were both excellent. It was a trip of a lifetime for us, and we enjoyed seeing your beautiful country and learning about your rich history and culture. Yonten was flexible, accommodating, knowlegable and professional--he worked very hard to tailor each day to our interests in birds/animals, short hikes, cultural stops. Yumraj was a wonderfully reassuring driver.  Thanks also regarding the Druk flight from Jonkar to Paro--they tried very hard to operate

From the accommodation to the itinerary, to the hotels and meals, Wind horse Tours was considerate and extremely proactive in thinking ahead and being immaculately organised. As we were travelling with two children with allergies, Wind horse

    Dear Anand,   On behalf of myself and my parents Trish and Ian, I would like to thank Windhorse for such an amazing experience. Our guide Sonam and driver Hemrag went far beyond the call of duty. My mum was sick to start with, not from Bhutan but from India, and then my father was also sick, again from food poisoning in India. Sonam organised antibiotics for my mum, and then my dad ended up in hospital on a drip. Sonam organised everything, quickly and professionally. We cannot praise him highly enough. The main reason that I was in Bhutan was to

  • They are excellent at what they do, accommodating and consistently pleasant. Oakland, CA,USA Trip Date:

    Rating:

    I believe it is important that all members of a tour get the same treatment. It is only fair. Several times, on my recent Drukyul Walking Tour, I found myself in rooms that were by far a lower standard or location than other members of my group. It does not seem equitable when I paid extra for a single supplement. If a hotel cannot accommodate all members with equivalent accommodation, another accommodation should be found. People should either get money back for lower standard rooms without views or the poorer rooms should be systematically distributed so no one is having
