    • Trip to Paro

      We had a wonderful trip with travel triangle at a nominal rate, stay in phuensholing was awesome with swimming pool, stay at Thimpu was very good in the capital city and the stay in Paro at an elevated resort was wonderful, hospitality too was unimaginable. The driver come guide Mr. Yugen was too cooperative, soft spoken, Very friendly, drove the latest KIA SUV safely on the ghat sections, finally the shopping was too memorable. Stupa, bhudda statue, temples in phunaka, fortress in paro & thimpu, dochula pass, museum was too good and ultimately the hiking in tiger's nest was superb, and we had a sweet memorable trip with travel triangle. Thanks to the organizors.

    • Trip to Paro

      This review/testimonial is coming a lot late in the day. Nevertheless the entire experience of my travel/ trip to Bhutan compelled me to write it down. Before I start I must give a disclaimer that the words written here will never be able to put down the real experience that was originally felt or seen. My trip was from June 6-11(6 days) in which I covered Phuentsholing- Thimpu- Paro and back to Phuentsholing. I wanted to surprise my parents by taking them with me to some place nice to beat the heat of summer. I being a practising Lawyer I had the month of June available to put the plan in action. However due to work pressure I couldn't plan anything. I couldn't even choose a place to visit. Naturally I planned my trip at the eleventh hour in last week of May. I was web searching various holiday destination in and around India. And Bhutan caught my eye. Then while searching for various travel review and also searching for a travel agent ( cause as I said I had no time to do self booking) I stumbled upon this website Travel Triangle (TT). I looked up on its website, read various testimonials such as this. Ms. Sushmita From TT helped out a lot provided me with various trips from many travel agent and after a little bit of research I zeroed on the trip provided by Himavat Destination. I called up the number given in web. Ms Ranjita Thapa was my point of contact in Himavat Destination. My entire was practically tailor made as per my specifications given by me as I wanted to have maximum comfort for my parents. I choose from the best hotels as per my need to the car for pick up and drop right from New Jalpaiguri Station (NJP) to Phuentsholing then from rest of the trip and back to Bagdogra Airport. And Sushmita and Ranjita made it possible for me. I must compliment these two persons as I disturbed them a lot and they basically stayed connected with me the entire trip. Both of them were very courteous and we're extremely helpful. Not only that once the trip started on 6th they made a WhatsApp group with many other people who were my point of help in Bhutan. That really helped. So now the details of my trip: We reached NJP on 6th at about 11am. On 5th itself I was given the details of driver who was waiting for us before our arrival. Car was WagonR. After a quick lunch at Teesta Barrage we started our journey towards Phuentsholing. The road goes through Hasimara- Alipurduar- Jaigaon. Road was comparatively good. The entire journey took is about 4-5 hrs. Road goes through Lush green forest in Hasimara. Huge Tea Estates in Jaigaon Alipurduar. Scene was worth capaturing. You can see groups of women plucking tea leaves. When you reach Jaigaon you can see the Mountains on distant horizons which indicates that you are nearing Bhutan border. The entire trip was very comfortable. Just as you enter Bhutan there are few things which is bound to falls in your notice. One the population-crowd ( Entire population of Bhutan is approximately 7.5 lacs only) and temperature suddenly and significantly goes down. Buildings have distinct architecture. Very little cars on road therefore zero pollution, air quality improves. Lots of trees which are not deforested for urbanisation or otherwise. Roads are butter smooth and well maintained and finally but not lastly no garbage on streets. Bhutanese people in their native clothes Gho (clothes worn by the men) and Kira(worn by Women). Bhutanese people are highly sensitive about cleanliness of not only their own homes but also their country which in my opinion is commendable. So we finally reached Phuentsholing checked in Hotel Alem. It's perched on a hilltop. The hotel was very good. Rooms were spacious, with all amenities Hotel staffs were very courteous and friendly. We reached there by 4-5 pm. As we were little exhausted we had our dinner in Hotel only and spent the night in the hotel only. Please note the driver who brought us to the hotel was given only till this point. Next day onward we got a local driver named Ugyen Rinzin who stayed with us for the entire trip within Bhutan. So next day (7th June) early morning me and my father went for a little Morning walk around the town. We did a heavy breakfast (which was included in the package itself) then Ugyen (driver) and Ms. Karma (our guide) was waiting with his Hyundai Tucson in which we first went to the immigration office for getting permits. It took us good 3 hrs over there as it was a little crowded. We bought a local sim for mobile as Indian numbers don't work over there. Also got currency exchanged as we were told that 2000 RS and 500 RS notes in Indian currency was not accepted in Bhutan which later I found to be not true. Yes, Indian currency is easily accepted all over Bhutan. After completing the immigration permits we started for Thimpu. Road to Thimpu from Phuentsholing goes through mountain pass at high altitude. As we climbed up the altitude the Greenery increased many folds and temperature droped further. we were going through heavy clouds and rain with almost zero visibility which made the journey mountain pass quite dangerous yet full of adventure and excitement. Scenic beauty was beyond words even the photos captured by my camera has watered down it's beauty, rustic smell of ground after first flush of rain and it's overall serenity. I was reminded of the lines from the poem written by John Keats - "A thing of beauty is joy forever." We stopped for lunch on the way and reached Thimpu after 5 hrs of drive at around 4 pm. We checked into our Hotel Oro Villa which is on the periphery of city perched on an elevated Hillside overlooking the city itself. View of the city from our hotel room was breath taking. One can spend hours overlooking the the imperial capital locked in the valley of mountains on its all sides. Thimpu is the only place which you can term as a city. It being the capital of Country has all amenities like big Hospitals, Markets, etc. Plus the major portion of population of the country resides here. That evening we took a stroll and explored the surrounding areas of the city. There are many shops of curios, local clothes and handcrafts which one should explore. People throughout Bhutan are very honest, friendly, approachable and are extremely helpful. One thing is visible everywhere is that people of Bhutan loves and respects their King And Queen like their own parents. Present King is also called People's King. Indian food is easily available in the hotels so we had dinner and spent the rest of evening overlooking the city from our room balcony and chit chatting with each other. Next day (8th June) we went for local sightseeing which includes Tashicho Dzong, Memorial Chorten, Buddha Dordenma which is a huge statute of Buddha over a hill top overlooking the City., a place called Simply Bhutan which I will recommend for every tourist to visit as it gives you insight of Bhutanese Culture, traditions, taste of local Cuisine, etc. We got a guide named Ms Pema who showed us around. We had the lunch there and also met a famous national paraplegic sculptor Mr. Pema Tshering. We also visited local Textile Museum and local Handicraft Market. Bhutan is famous for Sterling jewellery, Gem stones, Tankhas, and crockery. After a day well spent we returned to our hotel took a little rest and again visited local town on foot in the evening. Weather in Thimpu is very pleasant. Hotels don't have Fans, air-conditioning systems. Next day (9th June) after Breakfast we went to Paro. The trip took us 2-3 hrs as the roads were extremely good and well maintained. We reached Paro by 11 am and went straight to Taktsang Lakkhang (Tiger's Nest) monastery. I did the trekking with my father. Now one thing to be kept in mind trek of Taktsang is Moderately tough. It takes 3 hrs to go up and equal time to come down. But the view and the experience was simply mesmerizing. I being trek lover person would recommend it for every one who are physically fit person to undertake this trek. So we completed our trek and got down by 6 pm. We were completely exhausted so took rest for the rest the day in our hotel Yanki Resort. Next morning (10th June) we did local sightseeing visited Airport View point overlooking Paro International airport. From this point the entire airport looks like Hotwheels Play set, then we visited Paro Museum, Paro Dzong and then we started our return journey to Phuentsholing. After completing the sightseeing it took us another 4-5 hrs. That evening we went out again to explore Phuentsholing. Here we bid adieu to Uygen as there was other driver given for our journey back. Next day (11th June) after heavy Breakfast we bid adieu to Bhutan and Returned to Bagdogra Airport for our returning flight. So this was my testimonial for my trip to Bhutan. now during this entire trip Ms Ranjita Thapa from Himavat along with other people stayed in contact with me looking after our comfort which I truly believe made the entire trip wonderful and joyable. I thank Travel Triangle ( specially Sushmita) and Himavat Destination ( specially Ranjita) for their support.

      Would recommend Bhutan INC to all travelling to Bhutan. Lovely people - planned my trip perfectly. Driver Subash is a gem of a person. Enjoyed exploring Bhutan with him. He took care of all our needs and went out of the way to make our experience memorable. Would recommend Zhingkham resort in Punakha as well as Udumwara resort in Paro to all. Veg food served in UDumwara was yummy. Special mention to Miss Leela from Bhutan INC for planning my trip perfectly according to my needs and Mr Subash our driver for being such a wonderful host..These people have made a special place in my life forever...

      We had a both bitter and sweet experience overall. But there was much lack of coordination between the driver and the travel agency. As per the itinerary, we had a visit to the Secretariat building at Thimpu included in it. However the driver refused to take us there and said outsiders are not allowed at all. We were simply shown the building from a far away distance from the mountain top. But we weren't informed beforehand that the place is open for outsiders, after 5. This led to a bitter scuffle with the travel agency later over call and we were told that viewing the building from far away from the mountain top is also a kind of "visit". Since we could not visit that place which was included in our itinerary, after much scuffle, we were told we would be shown another fort as a compensaion. But the driver in the morning blamed us for the travel agency blaming him. He turned rude and told us he won't take us to the other place mentioned as compensation by the travel agent as it was not there in the itinerary and that he was just a freelancer and is not part of the travel agency. We decided not to get involved in any more scuffle. That was quite a bitter experience on day 2 of the trip due to the lack of coordination. Rest of the days of the tour were kind of good. The cab was quite comfortable as promised , but the driver could have been a little friendly. Visit to Punakha Dzong and Dochula Pass were wonderful. The hotel at Punakha and Paro were good.

      I have previously travelled to thailand with my wife using travel triangle app. You guys are well organised and make stay comfortable during holidays. So is my bhutan trip , so i will give 5/5 star to travel triangle for this. Mostly will contact you later this year for Europe package. Bhutan was a nature's gift to humans. Paro was the most beautiful city. it has peace, Beauty, adventure trek, culture etc . Our hotel sinchulla resort in paro was too good. Himavat travels made our trip heckless and stay pleasant. They were just one call away. All the things were well organised. Our driver Mr Binod chetri was a humble soul. He guided us during the whole trip and made us comfortable. Miss Prema and Pinki of himawat were very helpful. Only bad memory to my trip is hotel Om Tara of Thimpu whose services were poor and they were rude to us. Food was not at all good and they didnt even clean the room. Towels were not even changed on futher request. So for that i have to give days of thimpu zero stars. otherwise our trip was good.

      A week has passed since we returned from the Bhutan Trip and still unable to get over the wonderful time we had together. The holiday was ab unforgettable experience for all 10 of us in the Group. I traveled from Melbourne Australia to join my brother and sisters and their families at Bhubaneswar, then took train to NJP from where we were picked up by AD Tours and Travels for 6 nights 7 days tour of the wonderful land of Bhutan. Damber with who I made the initial contact is an amazing guy as he so meticulously arranged everything for us including tour planning, guide and hotels which really worked well for us and were to the liking of everyone in the Team. Phubjika Valley and Tigers nest were the most beautiful places apart from Timphu, Punakha and Paro. Suman Rai was an exceptional guide and so was the driver Jombay. Being an Australian Citizen, the tour fees were very high for me, however is worth of it at the end. Wherever we visited we noticed people are so nice and friendly. Many within the Team are dog lovers and noticed them so good to welcome the visitors at every place. They perhaps very well represent the humbleness of Bhutan. Hotel staff are very friendly. All Team members are aligned with the above score.

      Hotels : All hotels Bhutan was good. The hotel in Thimphu was so far from city the we had to pay separately for cabs to commute to city if needed. However, in Paro (Sinchula villa) was not clean and services were not great. Powring guest house in gangtok was good. Marvel international in darjeeling was the worst of all.. The room was unclean and the location was such that we had to carry our luggage to the hotel as the cab drivers resisted to come to hotel. The cab drivers were asking money directly or in directly at times. Travel agent services were good except that i was promised for a innova to Nathula pass but we were made to go in Alto. The agent has also promised to pay back extra money which was given to cab driver during darjeeling city tour since he asked for it. Every place was covered except a very few of them.. So it was a good experience overall.
