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 trail.
Speaking of the trail, the Tiger’s Nest was surely a highlight. I had been unsure of my ability to do it, but was thrilled that I was able to at least reach the observation point (with the help of a pony the first half). Even though we decided that the last steps were a little too treacherous for me, we had a thoroughly satisfying experience. After our trek, Pema and Sonam took us for momo in Paro, which was another highlight of the trip!
Overall, I would have to say that our time in Gangtey was the other highlight of the trip, and in particular the opportunity to participate in a loche with a local family. I can’t think of a better way to have given us a feeling for the Bhutanese people than to have an invitation to celebrate with them in their home. It was a truly unforgettable experience.
I have attached a few of my favorite pictures, which I hope you will be able to use. (I looked on the website for a place to upload a review, but didn’t see one.)
Thank you again for an unforgettable trip.
