Memorable trip to Bhutan.

Hi Mr Sithar,
Yes that’s a pity that we could not meet up there, but we met your wife there right ? I think the trip is nice because of the nature, the hospitality of Bhutanese people, the very care and kindness of Bhakta and Passang, just except the fact that I did not really enjoy the food because I am quite difficult for any new type of food.

Anyway it’s not a great issue because I understand we had to adjust to the local conditions whenever we travel.

I did give your company contacts to some of my friends who will come for Bhutan next and the information of the trip has been shared in our local tourism forum for people to know more about Bhutan. You can see the pictures I took in my Facebook, some of which are really nice. Hope to have chances to be back to your lovely country. Best Regards

My Magical Bhutan Tour.

Good evening Sithar Tamang,

Tonight is my last night of my Magical Bhutan itinerary, and as per your welcome letter, I would like to take this chance to share my experiences with my guide, Mr Lal, and Driver Passang.

I have had an amazing week, and the beauty and peacefulness I have experienced in this amazing Kingdom has created so many memories that I hope will be with me for the rest of my life. The professionalism of Mr Lal and Passang have ensured that my time here was all it could be. The gentlemen were always incredibly punctual, incredibly well-groomed, and always with a big smiles on their faces.

I would also like to comment on the excellent driving of Passang. We covered many miles on some rather challenging roads and I never once felt my safety was in jeopardy. His vehicle was always clean and tidy, even after a day of driving on dusty roads. And he always had a ready smile and happy face!

In these two gentlemen, I believe you have two very special people who are great Ambassadors of your wonderful Kingdom. I am grateful to them for the wonderful way they looked after me this week.

Great Memories 7 Days Bhutan Tour.

Yak Holidays (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.

At all times Kinga would explain the day’s itinerary and I was never left in any uncertainty as to what was happening. Every evening, he would always ensure that everything was as it should be, that my room was to my liking and that I didn’t have any other requirements before he would depart for the night. He also went ‘the extra mile’ for me today which I am very appreciative of.

Kinga is a budding artist, and gave us great insights into Thangka art.
