I loved almost everything about our trek. Our guide, Namgye, was fantastic. He answered all of our questions, instructed us skillfully through the trekking, had a great feel for guiding each one of us individually as well as guiding us as a group. The cook, Mon, made delicious and nutritious meals and allowed me to watch him cook. His momos were fantastic. All the assistants were helpful and so kind. The pony masters were also talented and so fun!
However, I would recommend getting new mats. The mats were pretty thin. I’d recommend the folding waffle-like plastic ones used for backpacking. Those would be thicker and more comfortable and would take up less room. Also, if there is some way we could have more guidance before we leave on tipping, that would be great. For instance, what is appropriate for our guide, the cooks, the number of assistants, if it is necessary to tip the pony masters and drivers and if they are paid by windhorse, etc.
The itinerary, equipment, cars, recommended training, gear requirements, etc were all superb.
I love Bhutan now and would highly recommend windhorse.
