Myself and two friends completed the Jomolhari trek with Bhutan Travelers. It was my first time traveling like this - with a guide and everything planned. At first I was like.. is this really how this works I just wire money to this company I found on the internet and it will all worked out? Anyways, it did work out! Overall we had an amazing experience - post hike afternoons in our tent with snacks and hot tea delivered to our door, hot water bottles for cold nights, mid morning hike breaks with juice boxes. Overall I would say this felt like a no frills experience that still had every detail taken care of. It was really refreshing to just spend a lot of time with only each other to entertain each other! We read books, journaled, talked a lot and played imagination games hah. As someone who usually travels in a bit more unstructured way, it felt nice to do something like this where everything was taken care of, and in Bhutan you really are contributing to the local economy with the fees that you pay. A few random tips: don't rely on ATMs to work in Bhutan (they don't have the ability to handle chip cards yet w/ their atms) - bring cash! Make sure you bring enough warm clothes for sleeping (I slept in like three jackets and sleeping bag and was still slightly cold in early March!). Our group were all runners and mostly hiked in trail running shoes and that was totally fine! During the day we wore loose light pants and a technical long sleeve, carrying puffy jackets and waterproof layers in our daypacks - that was perfect. Also Bhutan Travelers can watch items for you if you don't want to bring on your hike with you - I would not recommend leaving behind valuables as we did have some items turn up missing (although I do not fault the travel company for this). Also we used one phone to take pictures and it lasted pretty much the whole week on airplane mode and turned off at night. That said, there were a few campsites with electrical outlets along the way so you have that!

Our first trip to Bhutan had been nothing less than an awesome experience. Warmly welcomed by the assigned guide Tshering Norbu, and driver Sampa, they partnered well and took real good care of my family throughout. Kind, attentive and always on the lookout for us during the trip was heartening. Norbu exercised flexibility in the itinerary, tweaked to better accomodate our speed and energy levels at different times. These made our experience extra pleasant. Special mention to Norbu to accomodate my younger son's frequent requests to play soccer when each day ended. A reason why both built a close relationship. We truly felt as if Norbu and Sampa are members of our own family at the end of trip such that we parted ways clearly emotionally on the morning of the departure. Will highly recommend Bhutan Travelers as well as Norbu and Sampa to take care of your intinerary.

Had one of the best travel experiences of our lives in September, organized through Bhutan Travelers. Everything taken care of seamlessly through our guide Chencho who with his vast experience and knowledge of all things related to Bhutan, left us with vivid memories. Lots of fun on the trek, meeting fascinating local people, experiencing their wonderful hospitality and everything the country has to offer. Captivating, beautiful landscapes. A true travel adventure!

on behalf of our group of seven I would like to thank your company for professional organization of the trip . All the people involved were very helpful particularly Norbu. We would suggest to make a trip in the mountains 2 days longer/ Altogether 6 days/ with starting point at lower height for acclimatisation.Yak trail / done for the first time/ is beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of it.. Food excellent and all the people very nice. We would recommend BHUTAN TRAVELERS to anyone

I did a cultural tour by myself but did not feel so alone due to the guide Norbu and driver Leekdeen are very friendly and entertaining. Though they are also professional, they know what they are doing. Norbu has a special talent in making history sounds not so boring and fun, eventhough I have a bad memory but I still learn something. They went above and beyond to take care of their guests. They are fun. I highly recommend anyone who wants to visit Bhutan to check out Bhutan travelers and esp Norbu as a guide and Leekdeen as your driver. Eventhough u r by yourself, you will never feel alone, also safe and you will be in good hands
