There are many, many things to thank you for! Foremost, is my life-changing trip to your beautiful country. You enriched my experience with your stories, identifying animals & birds, the patience & care for our comfort, your sense of humor, the love you have for your country & community and on and on.
I've just returned from a 3 week roundtrip across Bhutan, starting in Paro and exploring West, Central, Eastern and South Bhutan. This country, which is slowly opening its doors to the West, is an absolute gem. And a very safe destination. I can't recommend Bhutan Mindful Travels enough!!
The owner, Mincha Wangdi, has a Master's degree in environmental studies from London. He used to work as a teacher, then wrote the Bhutanese school curriculum for environmental studies and worked for World Wildlife Fund for 12 years. He is a fountain of knowledge, particularly in regards to birds (any bird lovers would be a fool not to travel with Mincha - he knows all the spots for every of the 800± birds species to be found in Bhutan!), the environment and sustainability, but he also happily and eloquently answered all my questions regarding Bhutanese religion, culture, politics and society in general. Mincha designed a comprehensive itinerary, taking all my wishes into account and he added further highlights I wouldn't even have known about. All my questions leading up to the trip were patiently and promptly answered. Once there, the team took care of everything. Everyone was extremely kind, respectful and helpful. I've learnt more in those three weeks than I could have ever imagined. And I had heaps of fun, too.Thank you so much Bhutan Mindful Travels for an absolutely unforgettable experience!
It was nice to be in Bhutan with Mincha and Sonam. It was really fantastic experience seeing Bhutanese culture and those beautiful birds. Blood peasant, Tragopan and Monal were most amazing. One of the most amazing experience was the spot where we were able to locate almost 60 species of birds in stretch of just 100 meters. It was un-believable and one of the fantastic days of my birding life!! We will definitely come again for this cross Bhutan tour.
