Drukyul Walking Tour (March/April 2009) 7 pax
Ugen, thank you again for all your help in arranging our trip to Bhutan. It is a beautiful country, and we had a great time. I’m sorry it has taken a while, but here is some feedback from our trip. Our guide, Tshewang, was knowledgeable and approachable. He openly answered all our questions, and gave us a feel for local customs and traditions. Our driver, Guddu, was careful and friendly. He had to negotiate some difficult roads in the mountains, and did an excellent job.
The itinerary was good overall; it gave us a view of different parts of Bhutan. The only place it would have been fine to skip was Haa (and add an extra day at the Paro festival).
All the hotels were comfortable (the one in Haa was somewhat run down). We liked the food; there was usually a good variety. Our guide introduced us to several local foods including momos and buckwheat noodles, which we enjoyed (but we didn’t develop a taste for ema datse (:) I have attached a picture of Dianne and me with Tshewang and Guddu; it would be great if you could share it with them.
