Who we are
We are a team of well-connected guides and trip leaders, with operations in Bhutan and the U.S. We offer in-depth, intimate, and authentic journeys across the transformational landscape of Bhutan with travel extensions in the region. Since 1999, we have arranged in-depth expeditions to Bhutan for New York Times journalists, fine-art photographers, writers, Buddhist teachers, avid trekkers and a wide range of discerning travelers.

A diverse range of travelers
At Bhutan Himalaya Expeditions, we have worked with an incredibly diverse range of travelers including textile enthusiasts, avid outdoor enthusiasts, New York Times journalists, multi-generational families, birders, mountaineers, artists, medical, dental, eye-clinic missions, writers, photographers, artists and more. Over the years their individual traveling styles, interests and needs have made us skilled in responding to the widest range of situations which means that we are just as great at handling complex logistics as at staying flexible enough to seize the spontaneous opportunities that make travel such sparkling, meaningful and, even, life-changing human experiences.

Bhutan at your pace
Traveling in a group, if not handled properly, can feel impersonal and rushed. When you sign up with us we always see that you have reasonable personalized access to our guides and staff to ensure you never feel as if you are holding up the group. Our journeys have enriched the lives of our many guests, a great number of whom have described their journeys as transformational, and who continue to refer us to new travelers. We are proud of the fact that most of our new guests come to us from word-of-mouth introductions from our past travelers. This, in turn, enables us to continue nurturing our expanding web of cross-cultural friendship and discovery.
Our volunteer journeys provide opportunities to give back and do some good in the communities where we travel. Our past “voluntouring” trips have included short-term projects for families with high school teens, retired professionals and travelers with backgrounds in health & medicine. Our culinary journeys, village-to-village ride and camp horseback tours and our winter treks to Southern Bhutan’s recently re-opened Royal Manas National Park are thoughtfully expanding the range of travel options available in the kingdom.
Sharing Bhutan is our Passion
We believe that we provide travelers with a deeply meaningful window to a way of life that is inherently balanced, sane and compassionate. We proudly continue to share our rich Bhutanese heritage with respect, sensitivity, and in the firm belief that Bhutan has a remarkable perspective to share with the rest of the world.
