I’m not sure if I can fully encapsulate into words what Bhutan is — it is one of the most beautiful country I have ever visited, filled with kindness, stillness and and undercurrent of joy. If you are thinking about going, stop thinking, and just go. It will change your life and the way you see the world. I know it did for me.
I can’t speak highly enough of Nima, my tour guide, and my driver, Jigme, both of whom were respectful, professional and so incredibly kind. Plus Nima had quite the sense of humor and it made my trip filled with even more laughter than expected!
We had quite some snowy weather but I always felt like I was in good hands. Nima in particular went above and beyond when we hiked up to Tiger’s Nest in the snow. He constantly was pulling and pushing me up the mountain to make sure we could make it.
What a gift this entire experience was. I will never forget Bhutan and hope that I will have the opportunity to visit it again in this lifetime.
To the team at Gawaling, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my Bhutanese dreams come true and showing me why your country is called the Land of Happiness.
I certainly walked away infinitely happier than when I arrived.
