Above the cloud Trek
It was good to talk to you while I was in Bhutan. As I said before, I really enjoyed my trip and was very happy with the standard of care I received. Although the trek had its scary moments, Yonten made sure I was looked after and he encouraged me when I needed more confidence. Things like lots of mud and bridges being washed away are out of your control and they just have to be dealt with. It adds to the adventure. All the Windhorse employees I met were a credit to your company.
The only thing I wasn’t too impressed with was the accommodation at the hot springs (although the Queen mother was staying there, so the better accommodation was taken I think). It was really filthy and I would have preferred to stay in the tent, but it was not a good place to camp. Even if the accommodation had been better, two nights was too much for me and I would have preferred to spend an extra day/night it a more appealing place like Punakha.
Apart from that minor criticism, I have no complaints about my trip and I am very glad I chose Windhorse. I will recommend Windhorse Tours to anyone I speak to who is considering a trip to Bhutan.
