    Rohini's 8 days trip to Thimphu

    We traveled to Bhutan from 14-23 December, 2023. It was one of the best trips ever. Bhutan Maitreya Tusita travels did a fantastic job of organising this trip for us. Everything was planned, meticulous, customised, comfortable. There were no hitches anywhere. Our guide, Chencho was outstanding and w
    as very supportive to us right from the time we entered Bhutan till the time we started our return journey. Our driver was very polite too. The hotels booked for us were very comfortable, scenic and luxurious. The best city we stayed in was Punakha, leaving us wishing that we stayed there for longer. The visits to the weaving centre and paper factory in Thimphu were memorable too. Of course, any trip to Bhutan is incomplete without a hike to tigers nest. Thankfully, with Mr. Chencho, it turned out to be wonderful too. As a country, Bhutan is so well preserved, blessed with such beautiful natural resources. So much of effort is taken to highlight the art, culture and heritage of the country. It was a very personalized, curated tour. All of our requests were patiently accomodated by Bhutan Maitreya Tusita travels team. They made this so happy and memorable for us. A big thank you to them.
