Hi…we would like know more about the trip to Bhutan. What will be the cost for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids (16 and 13).

Have been introduced to you through anupa. we are considering taking this trip. would it be nice if we cut out the extra night at Thimpu and spend longer at Punakha or beyond( many may not be interested so much in marketing and handicrafts )my father Mr Nari Rustomji in his capacity as Advisor to the King of Bhutan was very close to Jigmie Dorji the PM of Bhutan who was assasinated in 1984 and also to the royal family. it would be wonderful if you could find out where Mr Dorjis family is located and if i could meet them, it would be wonderful too. how much would this trip cost ? dr tusna park

Hi Jyoti, I just replied to you.

Hi wanderers,

I spent a little over a week in Bhutan circa 2005. I think your itinerary looks great. I did not make it to the Tiger’s Nest, but did make it to a picturesque and extremely tranquil and soul-cleansing little spot called Bumthang. Maybe you can keep that in mind for a future trip.

Do you make custom itineraries?

Hi,

We include Bumthang in our longer itineraries of 8- 9 days. agree it is really worth spending the extra few days! Thanks for dropping by , we do a lot of customised trips ( most of our trips are in fact customised). We operate in North-East india ( Assam, Arunachal , Nagaland, Meghalaya, Sikkim) as well as in Bhutan.

man… i so want to do this trip with you. the kids would love it and I’m dying to see N.

So come na.. its really a beautiful place.

Howdy, I am following your blogs but haven’t done any trips with you folks. I am more of a do-it-myself type traveller but you folks do have an interesting concept. I just came back from a ten day trip to Bhutan and loved the place! I am wondering whether you folks have Trongsa and Phobjika Valley in your itinerary as it was astoundingly beautiful and one of our favourite places in the whole trip. Some of my friends became enthused after seeing the photo essay and coincidentally I came across this post. If your itinerary and cost is reasonable I would love to recommend you folks to them . Can you please pass on your complete itinerary ? Thanks!

@MM : Hey 🙂 and take it from NM that you should make the trip 🙂

Thanks Girish, have sent you email with our itineraries.

Hi Kopili ,
