One of the guest fondly remarked ” Yeshey Penjor may be short in stature but he walks real tall in term of dedication, knowledge and the way he carries and does his work” Except perhaps during the nightmare at night, he wear his smile almost all the time. His soft spokenness and demeanour make him most sought after guide for guests travelling with kids. He gel with kids like as any good adhesive and impress the adults with his profound knowledge on subjects and his conduct.
For over 5 years he has been leading guests with panache and authority both culture and trekking. But he jumped gleefully into when he is assigned to do the trek. For his love for lush natural amphitheatre of vegetation and wildlife date back to growing days in far flung village in Mongar ( Eastern Bhutan).
He make up his lack of interest for sport with serious hiking. The best place to find him over weekend or free time is at camping hotspot within the vicinity of Thimphu.

Thank you for your mail. We have just arrived in Germany after visiting friend in Delhi for a few more days. The trip was amazing and just what we were looking for. The moment we arrived in Bhutan, it felt like a comfortable bubble because the driver and guide took very good care of us. Both were really excellent. The driver always drove carefully and fully concentrated while the guide was very knowledgeable, flexible and provided just the right amount of information. Personally we enjoyed Bhutan a lot. It is a really nice country. Our highlights were the tiger nest (obviously I

Thank you for your email and apologies for the late reply. I am traveling and I am not checking my emails very often. The trip was very interesting. Buthan is a beautiful country. My guide was very knowledgeable and also a nice person to talk to. Also the driver was really good. I was surprised that I was not feeling bad even once, considering how curvy roads are. I must admit though that I was a bit disappointed and at times frustrated with the program. I think that 0.5 day in Thimphu and 1 day in Paro would be enough (I spent

Sorry it's taken me awhile to get back to you, I've been rather busy writing and doing book layouts. My trip was great thank you. I thought you matched my guide with me very well. Yeshi and I got on great. The first driver I had till my trek was great too. However I'm sure you've heard about the young driver I had from Gasa to Phobjika valley! He was literally dangerous! I'm not a nervous person at all and I tried joking first en route and then as it continued I I started to be more firm. I'm aware that Bhutanese do

Overall, the trip was fantastic and I am truly grateful that you suggested India before Bhutan. However, the hotel in Delhi was superb. They upgraded us to a fabulous room the the 2nd and 3rd times that we were there which was lovely. Our guides in India were fine. I do have a couple of suggestions....I think we could have done with 1 night in Rathombore. We saw 1 tiger on all our safaris, although others saw many more...just lucky. We really liked Jaipur and maybe should have had 2 nights there instead. Darjeeling. Bhutan was really spectacular...we loved it.

A year of planning to the Land of happiness and the Dragon led to a life time of memories. We as a girls Whatsapp group of Andhra Medical College, Visakhapatnam embarked on the idea of a reunion in Bhutan. Based on the web reviews chose Wind Horse Tours and they took care of all queries, substantial and silly from us 17 ladies for a period of nearly 10 months as the plan started taking shape. The tour commenced on Nov. 6th 2017 for a period of 8 days and 7 nights. Our group included a mix of Indian and non-Indian(US/UK)

Hi Anand Sorry for the late report. I had a good time in Bhutan. I was able to have so many questions answered by my tour guide. I did the cultural tour. I was expecting fast pace tour but I guess I will need to schedule trek tour next time.I am vegan and I mentioned this to my tour guide. Some hotels did not have breakfast or any meal for vegans. The quality of transportation provided was great. My driver Guddu was awesome! Unfortunately, I suffered an accident coming down of Tiger’s Nest. I twisted my ankle and one of your tour guides Tashis

Wind Horse was an incredibly wonderful company to work with. They catered the trip to my specific wants. Trekking with Yeshi and rest of crew was highlight- 12 days with pack horses- the planning, care, food was fantastic, never mind the most amazing scenery! I owe such thanks to the sweetest, most thoughtful crew anyone could ask for! They even gave me a surprise birthday party at 14,000 feet! This was followed by two weeks of traveling the country and visiting monasteries where we were invited in. I hope to return and see more of the country. Everyone I met was

Dear Anand; Both Bhutan and Sikkim trip went well. If I were to mention some specifics, services in Darjeeling Hotel (Little Tibet) was little less than expected. (This could have been due to the demand of several guests who were attending wedding of the owner's son). Wi-fi everywhere is an area of improvement; but this is not specific to any hotel; it is probably due to heavy demand on the services. Transportation in Bhutan was excellent and so was the guide. On the whole the trip turned out well and we enjoyed it. Anil & Ila Shelat

Dear Kinga, We do hope that you had a successful trip to the UK in October. Sue and I were very pleased to meet you in Thimphu before you went. Windhorse certainly deserves to be in the top rank of travel agents for our type of holiday. Our trip to Bhutan was one of the most enjoyable holidays we have had. Over this Christmas and New Year period we have been composing our usual 'holiday album' and it has been bringing back happy memories of our time in Bhutan. We congratulate you on having such a successful organisation. Your attention to detail
