What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?
How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Ksang (not sure if that's the correct spelling), our Bhutanese guide (and his associates) were wonderful. The perfect mix of local knowledge and English-speaking.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Make sure your sleeping bag is up to the task. Bring thermal under layers. Don't be afraid of the food; it's delicious. Understand that some of the days will be very long. Bring trekking poles if you're at all worried about your knees/other joints on downhill sections (which can be very long).
Do you have anything else to add?
There are direct flights into Bhutan from Delhi. It might make more sense to fly straight in, saving a day 'wasted' in Kathmandu. The itinerary provided by Explore diverged from reality by some amount. I'm not sure anyone from Explore actually went on the trek, despite the changes that were sent out. Someone should do the tour, or speak to Yanphel Adventure Travel directly for a correct schedule of the days.
Thank you for your review – your tips are all good ones. We can look at the flights offered, but we had thought the time in Kathmandu to be of interest and value.
We are in discussions with our agent about the itinerary; changes were made in conjunction with our local staff before the trip, so we were concerned to learn that the route is differing in some respects from the itinerary on our Trip Notes. Thank you for letting us know about this.
