Trip to ThimphuFew of the hotels provided were very bad. No basic facilities were there. We had to call the agent and get the hotel changed at two places. And the itinerary provided for Thimphu and Paro are half day itineraries. We had so much leisure time.
Trip to ThimphuHimavat Destinantions arranged the 6D-5N trip to Bhutan for me and my wife. The trip was a wonderful experience. The itinerary was curated to our needs by Ms. Kajal. She was very accommodating and gave us the most suitable plan which turned out to be the best fit. We were kept busy but not a day was tiring. Special thanks to Mr. Pemya from Himavat Destinantions who helped us sort out a document issue at the immigration centre. He let us be calm and ensured he would sort things out for us. Full credit for making our trip a memorable one goes to Mr. Renzin Dorji. He was with us throughout our trip as our guide and patiently took us around, accommodating our timings and yet not missing out on any spot on the itinerary. His suggestions for food, shopping and local experiences were perfect. Coming to hotels, Orovilla is very much recommended for your stay in Thimphu. We felt Yangki Resort can crank up a notch in terms of service and customer experience. Overall Bhutan is a beautiful experience. The breathtaking sights, the wonderful people, the beautiful climate and everything just puts you in the right mood. It is a very refreshing feeling and I would like to thank Himavat Destinations for making this an awesome trip. Highly recommended for anyone who loves nature, want to experience the culture or just wants to take a peaceful break. Trek to Tiger’s Nest. Rafting in Punakha.
Trip to ThimphuWe planned for a 10 day trip to Bhutan via Travel Triangle, and zeroed on Bhutan Old Monk Tours as our tour operator for this vacation. Right off the bat, support provided by Yadop and his team was exceptional. They answered all our queries, and tailor-made our package as per our requirements. He also especially came to meet us during our stay in Thimphu and was in-contact with us during our whole Tour. A special mention for Jeevan who was our tour guide, this trip wouldn't have been as memorable as it was if it weren't for him. All the best to Yadop and team for their future endeavors.
Trip to ThimphuHad the most amazing 9 days in Bhutan. The trip was made wonderful all thanks to Subash for making all the arrangments, ensuring our stay was comfortable throughout and even taking out time to meet and spend time with us. I would especially like to thank Subash for arranging David to be our driver/guide, who turned out to be a true gem and a lifelong friend. We followed no fixed itinerary and got the opportunity to see Bhutan the way its citizens do. With the combination of gorgeous locales in Paro, Thimphu, Punakha and Haa Valley and the delicious local cuisine, this trip was made truly memorable by the kindness and generosity of the people and our wonderful hosts - Subash and David. I would definitely strongly recommend arranging your trip through Bhutan Red Robes for an unforgettable experience.
Trip to ThimphuExcellent! Planned a Bhutan trip with them in the month of July and it was amazing! They also assisted us personally in getting the permits and made the process smoother. The provided guide/driver, Sonam was a super amazing guy and a cool person. He was well on time, drove very safely and told us many facts about many places during sightseeing. Hotels were also great especially the Khamsum Inn at Thimphu. Overall, the trip was a memorable one, all thanks to Sanju! :)
Trip to ThimphuHotels : 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.
Trip to Thimphutour was good and everything was organized by bhutan inc (on travel triangle). no headache was there. hotels were good. in thimphu and paro hotels are located outside the city , self exploring was not possible.

Trip to ThimphuI booked my Travel plan through Traveltriangle.com and was service by Bhutan Govt Authorized "Bhutan INC" Travel Agency. Initially I was skeptical whether I should pay up 3 installments, since I had no clue the agency existed or not, since there address were not showing up in Google maps. Later on after interaction with Hari I felt all ok. Mr Hari was extremely helpful and was available most of the time on whatsapp to answer any query. He arranged nice set of two double rooms for my 4 adult plus kid. The Itinerary was planned well and Car was available as expected and I never felt any issue in Bhutan. My Trip was from 20-May-2019(Mon) to 26-May-2019(Sun) - Day1 at Hasimara Stantion to Phuentsholling, stay at Hotel Tseringma, Day2- Travel to Thimphu via Gedu Chhukha, Day3 - Thimphu singhtseeing and then travel to Punakha via Dochu La Pass, Day4 - Punakha Dzong, Suspension Bridge and then travel to Paro via Dochula Pass, Day5- Haa Valley via Chele La Pass, Day6 - Tigers Nest Hike, Day7-return to Hasimara Station. Our complete travel plan was organized well and we enjoyed our stay at Bhutan. Hotel Tseringma (Phuntsolling) was good, Hotel Dhey Kyid(Thimphu) was nicely located in Clock Tower Square, Hotel Yak Herder Boutique Inn (Punakha) was nicely located besides river, Hotel Kuenphen (Paro) was a good hotel. Our chauffeur Mr Wangchuk was extremely helpful and a very nice person who made our travel very comfortable. He helped us to get the Permit, he helped up during Tigers Next entry when Locker was full and he kept my Bag, and he arranged all things for travel well. Thanks to Mr Prakash of Bhutan INC who arranged our Punakha and Haa Valley restricted Permit obtained at Thimphu, without any trouble to us. Overall I am very much satisfied with BhutanINC and to TravelTriangle for letting me get in touch with BhutanINC. Note: You may search for my name and Bhutan Travel and will find video of my Bhutan travel in youtube.
