In order to visit Bhutan, you must retain a guide to travel around with you.
After considerable research, I settled on Bhutan Rovers, and Rigzin Namgyel.
Part of the reason I chose Rigzin was that he was very responsive and flexible. I was able to tweak and adjust my tour as I wished, and so I soon arrived at a good combination of touring by car and trekking.
Rigzin provided an excellent trekking team. Pictured above, left to right, Kinzand, our cook, Tenzin, helper, Rigzin, and Kaka our horseman.
Before trekking, we drove around in a very nice and comfortable 4WD SUV with his driver Pema. Then, on the trek, the crew above (with the help of 6 ponies) provided comfortable tent accomodations and tasty meals and tea as we hiked through area so remote all supplies must be carried in by pony or yak.
In order to reserve a trip like this (mine was 18 days), you must wire the funds in months in advance. Not to worry: it is safe and secure to do this. Rigzin provided everything he promised, on time and well done. It was a pleasure to tour and trek with his able guidance and his explanations of Bhutanese customs and history. I recommend employing him if you travel to Bhutan.
