This is long overdue. My partner & I have planned our Bhutan trip since last year. We were working with another tour company when we came upon Wind Horse. Just our first phone conversation with Ugen, we knew we had to switch to Wind Horse and have not regretted our decision.
I had mixed emotions about this trip. I was excited to see this picturesque country but terrified about the trek to Tiger’s Nest. Thanks to our wonderful guide, Kinley, and our quiet driver, Yamraj, (Raj, as we called him), they put my mind at ease. Kinley, who was very knowledgeable and attentive, kept us entertained with his antics and rendition of ‘Desposito’. Raj, on the other hand, managed the winding roads of Bhutan like a pro and always made us feel safe as we drove from one site to the next.
The highlight of the trip, the trek to Tiger’s Nest, had me on pins and needles but with Raj’s help (I now call him ‘my Savior’), I made it! He patiently helped me maneuver the uphill climb and those 800 steep steps. This trip was definitely a very memorable one, not only because Bhutan is such a beautiful country…Kinley & my Savior, Raj, played a big part, as well.
I highly recommend Wind Horse and the Kinley/Raj team.Rating: 5 By: Rowena
