Reviews for East Bhutan tour, trekking & culture
Nicole Melancon review 9 Dec 2022
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?What an incredible experience! It is hard to pick just one memorable experience as the entire journey along the Trans Bhutan Trail was incredible. Me and my guide Singay were the only ones on the trail except for locals. We saw no tourists and for me connecting with the local people and learning about their daily lives and customs was the most memorable part of the trip. Dining at local farmhouses and seeing how traditional meals are cooking was another highlight as was the opportunity to dine at local restaurants and scrap the tourist hotel meals.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?Be adventurous. The more willing you are to let go and experience the Trans Bhutan Trail, the better. Be open and willing to try new things out of your comfort zone. The best times I had was when I dined at local haunts instead of the hotel and sat down at a farmhouse to share a meal.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?Yes yes and yes. By going with this tour operator they are a nonprofit and all the money is reinvested back into the people and the trail. We tread lightly and help support the environment, the local businesses and people.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?One of the best in decades. Thank you!!!
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
