Thank you Windhorse for such an amazing experience
Dear Anand, On behalf of myself and my parents Trish and Ian, I would like to thank Windhorse for such an amazing experience. Our guide Sonam and driver Hemrag went far beyond the call of duty. My mum was sick to start with, not from Bhutan but from India, and then my father was also sick, again from food poisoning in India. Sonam organised antibiotics for my mum, and then my dad ended up in hospital on a drip. Sonam organised everything, quickly and professionally. We cannot praise him highly enough.
The main reason that I was in Bhutan was to bring some of my uncle’s ashes to the country, as I am trying to take a small part of him to all the countries that he did not visit before he died. Sonam organised having his ashes made in to a Tsa Tsa stupa at a nun’s monastery, and then he hiked with me for 8 hours above the Tigers Nest, so we could put the stupa as close to God as possible at the top of the mountain. He climbed trees to hang prayer flags and generally worked as hard as he could to make my wish a reality. All during the trip he was happy to change direction when I saw something that took my eye, and without him and the great team at Windhorse our Bhutan experience would not have been such a life changing one.
When I was refused exit from India, the Windhorse team passed messages on to my parents, and also helped me with information at very unfriendly hours of the night so that I could make another plan and as a result I only missed one day of the trip. It could have been a lot worse, and it was great to know that my parents were in such capable hands. Hemrag was a very safe driver, who kept his vehicle immaculate at all times. Never once did we feel unsafe in his hands. Best wishes.
