The Bhutan Himalaya Difference
As a longtime travel outfitter specializing in journeys to the Kingdom of Bhutan, we offer intimate, delightful, and transformational journeys across our beautiful corner of the Himalayas. Here are a few reasons why we think you should travel with us:
We Don’t Outsource Your Trip
With us you have the assurance of knowing that when you book your travel to Bhutan, you are making your reservations directly with the people responsible for running your trip once you arrive in the country. At Bhutan Himalaya Expeditions, we are actively engaged in all levels of designing, offering, booking, and guiding your trip in Bhutan. That is as local as it gets.
We have one of the Highest Guide-to-Guest Ratios in the Country
Imagine traveling in small groups with well-versed, articulate, and fun Bhutanese friends. That, in short, is how our trips are run. Our high guide-to-guest ratio makes it possible for everyone to feel personally cared for. It also enables our staff to share their wealth of insights and cultural connections in relaxed and meaningful ways with each trip member.
We Don’t do the Crowded Tour Bus Thing
Traveling with other people can be fraught with annoyances if everyone is traveling in close quarters much of the time. We generally use smaller vans and four wheel drives that enable us to get in and out of the more popular sights before the crowded tour buses arrive. The result is a smoother, more flexible travel experience for everyone.
We are Embedded in the Culture
All our trip leaders and guides were born and raised in Bhutan and come from different parts of the country featured on our trips; the reason why they are often welcomed back to the places we visit with the affection reserved for well-loved community insiders.
We Offer Different Perspectives
Our local connections in Bhutan are rooted in the multi-generational bonds of kinship that each trip leader brings to our team. Our friends and family include senior monastic elders, diplomats, government leaders, intellectuals, farmers, artisans and people all walks of life. With us you have the opportunity to understand first hand what makes Bhutan so special in an increasingly complex and challenging world.
We Bring You Genuine Local Insights
Our expert Bhutanese team of guides and leaders work hard to make every journey a rare and intimate travel experience. We have the in-depth connections, commitment and local involvement it takes to open the doors to truly authentic and insightful experiences in Bhutan. Whether arranging a private dinner with local dignitaries or being invited to local homes and temples, we open the doors to Bhutan as only respected insiders can.
