We spent 15 days in Bhutan touring the country on mountain bikes, 4 wheel drive, horseback, and day hiking. It was an adventure of a lifetime, and really made so by our guides, Sonam and Sonam, and the organization of Wind Horse Tours, Treks, & Expeditions. This was a custom trip, as it was just two of us. The people at Wind Horse were really great at putting our trip together. They were extremely flexible and had a lot of great ideas for things a bit off the beaten track. I don’t even really know how to describe it, except that every day was amazing, every accommodation was great, and we had such a amazing time. Sonam and Sonam took such good care of us, and somehow got us access to ceremonies and hidden gems, and we even got to meet the queen grandmother!
It seemed like every time we turned around we were faced with incredible views and got to see and participate in something wonderful. It was also a very active trip so we were very tired at the end of each day, and happy that we got to stay in nice hotels. The only bad thing was saying goodbye at the end of the trip because we developed a real friendship with our guides.
Bhutan the country is spectacular, the people are open, friendly, and warm, and the monasteries and tzongs are so beautiful. I highly recommend visiting Bhutan, and going with Wind Horse, especially if you are interested in a custom trip, biking, and/or a personal touch. You will love it!!
