I had a great trip and truly enjoyed our time in Bhutan – so much that I am missing it already?. Yes there was quite heavy snowfall on our second day but otherwise the weather was perfect and we always had clear views on the Himalayan mountain ranges, so weather served us rather well. The ice and snow restricted us in doing some parts of the planned program though, but we felt Namgay did very well in coming up with alternatives. Namgay and Sonam were both excellent, we couldn’t have been happier with having the two of them as our guide and driver (please send warm greetings to them). Also, the food, accommodation, the vehicle and the overall program and pace were perfect for us. We were also very happy with your responsiveness and the entire organization prior to the trip, this was much appreciated. So overall we are very satisfied with the entire trip?.
The only suggestion (really only a suggestion rather than a critique) I have is to urge future travellers to bring a light sleeping back with them if they travel at this time of the year, given that some nights were cold, e.g. once due to an electrical power blackout. We had enough thermo-wear to keep warm during night but next time I would probably take a sleeping bag with me as an extra back-up (maybe you recommended me to do this and I overlooked it when reading the trip notes, apologies if this is the case). Nevertheless we are very happy we did this trip at this time of the year, the sunshine and the low-season quiet were definitely worth doing the trip in December.
