I just returned from a 10D9N trip to Bhutan with Druk Asia
I just returned from a 10D9N trip to Bhutan with Druk Asia and had an amazing experience. It was a last minute trip, booked less than a month before I arrived in Bhutan. Thankfully, Namgay responded to emails promptly and was able to organize the trip quickly, including the 3 day trek I requested.
I completed the Tshaluna trek at the beginning of my trip. The views during the trek were beautiful and the trekking staff were fantastic. They went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and well-fed. The food on the trek was especially good, thanks to the great cook! As a solo female traveler, I felt completely safe and at ease. After the trek, I visited Thimphu, Punakha and Gangtey. Khang Residency in Thimphu and Dewachen in Gangtey were my favorite hotels of the trip. The food was also great, especially the red rice and Kewa Datshi (potatoes with cheese and chillies).
My guide, Tshering Dorji, was amazing! The 10 days went by so quickly. He is a wealth of knowledge, explaining everything from local customs, religion, Bhutanese history, and modern Bhutanese life. He was flexible with the itinerary and incredibly attentive. For example, he noticed that I liked Kewa Datshi so much that he ordered it for me every day. I highly recommend Tshering as a guide.
My driver, Thinley, was also great! He was very professional and I always felt safe while he was driving.
Overall, Druk Asia organized an amazing trip for me and I will hopefully use them again for a future trip to Bhutan.
