What other travelers say about us

“Karma and his team perfectly orchestrated a wonderful series of valuable insights into Bhutan and Bhutanese culture. My particular area of interest was to learn about Bhutan’s challenge of balancing the goals of their Gross National Happiness Policy with the need to grow their economy and promote industry in the kingdom, which Karma addressed by arranging fascinating meetings with Bhutan’s Economic Affairs Ministers and other Bhutanese dignitaries and media personalities. A fantastic trip all-around with great hiking, culture, current affairs, insights into Buddhism and everything in-between.”
~ Heinrich Karl Friedrich Eduard Pierer von Esch, Former CEO, Siemens AG-Germany

“In an attempt to share an overall impression of my journey, I began by saying, ‘It was life-altering’. So many changes took place within me during this adventure, on every level. My place in the world, my heart-space, all have been expanded beyond my dreams. For this monumental learning experience, I am forever grateful.” - Laurel W.

“Through the eyes of a select few informed leaders we saw the dilemmas of a culture: A hitherto sheltered nation discovering the arguments for and against remaining a cloistered society in this 21st Century. I loved the adventure, and I loved the discovery. Unlike anything else I have ever experienced!” - Lola W.

“I loved the fact that there were planned activities but with flexibility built in. On one occasion we got to sit with a monk as he recited his morning prayers and my guide stayed there with me—there was never any pressure to progress—yet he was always ready to move on when I was. I loved every moment of my time with your company and I hope to return again to Bhutan. I am strongly recommending that anyone traveling to Asia should consider discovering Bhutan with your team. Thank you for the great memories!” - Tony H., New Zealand

“There are so many things that we recall each day that remind us how special this trip was for us. It was about seeing, feeling and understanding the spirit of the place, and perhaps it was partly about finding answers to some very personal questions. You shared your country with respect, humor, grace, patience, and with great care. We carry extraordinary memories of an extraordinary trip!” - Lois C., California, USA

“A FEW WORDS from good friends are worth more than gold,” goes an old Bhutanese saying. We could blow our horn, or we could let our guests—many of whom continue to refer us to their friends and family—speak for us. We prefer the latter. So we can focus on what we do best: putting together the top-notch experiences that create sentiments like these:
