My trip to Bhutan was an amazing adventure.

I was greeted with warmth upon arrival at the Paro International Airport and my guide and driver were fun to be with. My Bhutan itinerary was bountiful and flexible which was great as some of the visits were quite quick. I very much enjoyed the temples and the vast history. My guide was very knowledgeable!

I was also greeted by Mr Sithar, the owner of the company, who came out to meet me in person. This was such a lovely gesture.

Memorable trip to Bhutan with Yak Holidays.

Everything was taken care of by Yak Holidays, We were in Bhutan in March for a 12 days vacation in Bhutan. We saw everything we wanted to. Because it was just my wife and I if we wanted to change the itinerary it was no problem. Our guide Mandhoj and driver Yuda were wonderful.

I have no idea how Yuda drove through those mountain passes with Yaks, dogs, rocks, cows, horses, landslides etc almost every step of the way.

Great Memories 7 Days Bhutan Tour.

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.

Visit to Bhutan with Yak Holidays

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 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.
