Yak Intl (Sithar) arranged an absolutely wonderful visit to Bhutan. He was easy to deal with by (email) even though there was a 12 hr time difference. We are back home now with lots of great memories and images. The Yak tour guide and driver (Kinga and Nima) showed us their country in a very caring, thoughtful and in a very personalized way. Kinga is a budding artist, and gave us great insights into Thangka art. The sites and activities chosen kept us busy, interested, but did not fatigue us. Our visit happened between festivals, but Sithar was able to put on a nice cultural program with some local artists. The food and lodgings were excellent, and we were able to get some recipes from the cooks to take back home. Ema datshi is now a staple in our home. Kinga and Nima were outstanding tour guides and companions. We were very well taken care of. My compliments on having an incredibly competent and caring team.

Just got back from Bhutan with Yak Holidays. During the initial planning , we approached a few other tour operators before deciding to go with Yak. Throughout the whole planning process, we found Mr Sithar easy to work with and also very accommodating. .Always very prompt to reply to my emails and questions and that did make us feel at ease. From the minute we landed in Paro, we were taken good care of by Lal(guide) and Nima (driver).Lal was very informative, patiently sharing his knowledge of his country, culture and history ofall the places we visited. We even get the chance to visit a local market in Thimphu.Nima was a good driver and we felt safe with him behind the wheels especially in some parts of the roads which were quite challenging. We had a great time in Bhutan and it was very nice of Sithar to meet us in person. Thanks to Sithar and his team for making the trip to their amazing and beautiful country very memorable.

My trip to Bhutan with Yak holidays was very pleasant from the very beginning to the end. I have nothing but praise for Mr Sithar and his team. The driver and the guide who were with me were highly knowledgeable. In the near future if anyone decides to travel to Bhutan I would highly recommended Yak Holidays Int'l.

Yak Holidays Int'l arranged a 15 day tour for me as a solo traveller. I cannot say enough about the extremely high level of service they provided me from the moment I arrived at Paro to my departure. I can only thank Mr Sithar Tamang for the excellent service and flexible itinerary he provided me, with quick and courteous answers and was constantly in touch with me. I would also like to thank Mr Tashi (driver) and Mr Jigyme (guide) for keeping me safe and as well as entertained throughout the entire 15 days I was in Bhutan both the guide and the driver had immense knowledge about the history and culture of Bhutan. Overall my Bhutan trip was amazing and all thanks to the team of Yaks Holidays Int'l and can't wait to explore more of Bhutan soon for eastern bhutan tour.

My husband and I spent 6 days travelling in beautiful Bhutan with Yak Holidays Int'l. The scenery was breathtaking, the history fascinating and the people were warm and welcoming. Our guide, Milan and our driver, Tashi took very good care of us. Milan had immense knowledge regarding the history and culture of his beautiful country and shared it with great pride. Tashi was an excellent driver and negotiated those challenging roads with grace, patience and expert skill. We felt very safe and cared for in the hands of Milan and Tashi at all times. We celebrated our 30th anniversary while in Bhutan and Milan took the time to inform our hotel of this. The hotel decorated our room for the occasion and had a special table set up for us at dinner at Milan's request. My husband became ill the night before our hike up to Tiger's Nest so regrettably we had to postpone this adventure for another time. The staff at the Himalayans Keys Forest Resort were very kind and caring. They continually checked in on us and made my husband homemade soup to assist with his recovery. Milan and Tashi took me to town to do some shopping and a little exploring. I highly recommend Yak Holidays when visiting beautiful Bhutan. Milan and Tashi made the trip memorable! Thank you to you both!!!
