Trip to Bhutan

Bhutan is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful place that I have ever visited and will remain in my memory forever.

Bhutan Best Inbound Tour made it possible for me to have a quality time in Bhutan. Mr. Thinley ensured that everything went well.

They had arranged a lunch for us next to the riverside at Punakha. It was a wonderful experience.
And the traditional hot stone bath after a tiring Taktsang hike was so refreshing.
We recommend Bhutan Inbound Tour.
They go out of their ways to make sure we have a good time.

Amazing Bhutan 

Trekking the high mountains of Bhutan ( Nub Tshona Pata) was one of the best decisions that I have made with Mr. Thinley in planning this exclusive tour. Thinley had been very patient with all my endless questions and answered them in detail with full involvement - giving me the whole picture of the tour that we were planning.

Well, with all discussions we have pulled out an experience of a lifetime. Trekking to the lake Tshona pata perhaps one of the best experiences of the whole trip including the Tiger's Nest Monastery; of course. Serene nature in the wild- crystal lakes shimmering fresh air- it was simply amazing. 

I would recommend anyone interested in trekking to try this as this is not so touristy and offers extreme beauty of nature. 


Thank you Bhutan Inbound and Thinley for making this possible.
