        Enjoyed Bhutan trip
        What a wonderful country Bhutan is. We loved everything from landscapes to culture. It's so clean and peaceful that I felt like moving in. And I would give the credit of having such a great experience to Nature Tourism Bhutan. They made it so easy for us from entry permits and Visa to great accommodations, guide and driver. Going with Indian tour agents is little cheaper but I would not recommend them. They just don't understand Bhutanese culture the way nature tourism does. They make the whole experience so enriching and enlighten us through the trip about ways, life and history of Buddhism and Bhutan. Pay more but go with them and not a cheaper Indian tour operator for a more fulfilling experience.

        They fulfilled all our varying needs
        Had an amazing experience of travelling with nature tourism. We were a group of friends who wanted different kind of things but nature tourism managed to fulfill all our wishes from specific food needs to adventures like trekking and river rafting to getting awesome hotels. The guide was very helpful and friendly too. Highly recommend them.

        Best tour operators in Bhutan
        We were not sure if we want to book a tour operator in Bhutan or travel on our own. But our friends suggested we go with Nature Tourism Bhutan. We did a lot of research and talked to many other operators and we finally decided to go with them. And it turned out to be such a wonderful decision. From the moment we first started interacting with them, we felt some comfort as they told us they could handle all our entry and visa requirements. We entered Bhutan via road from Pheuntsholing and we had our permits within 5 mins as they had already done all necessary formalities beforehand. Moving ahead, not only was their itinerary perfect, their driver and guide were so friendly and always took an extra step to ensure we were comfortable, food was to our liking and all our queries were answered. Not to make this review much longer, I would highly recommend Nature Tourism Bhutan for all sorts of trips - nature, cultural, adventure or a general sightseeing trip. They are surely experts, thorough and extremely caring. You would not regret travelling with them.

      We, international group of Ukrainians and Russians, had great experience with Nature Bhutan and his manager Karma. Car, guide Sonam, hotels and food were amazing during all days. Everything was organized on top level and we enjoyed every moment of our trip. Highly recommend Karma and his company🤠

      We recently returned from a wonderful group trip to Bhutan. We generally do not book our travels with a travel agency and like to plan everything ourselves. But since Bhutan is a land full of culture and spirituality, we wanted to know the people and culture up-close. We also had a limited time in hand and wanted to cover as many places as we can situated distance apart. That’s when we came across Nature Tourism – Bhutan. As we researched, we got to know that they specialise in organising customised trips to meet individual agendas like cultural trip, architectural trip, trekking and bird watching. We got in touch with Karma Jamtsho, the founder of Nature Tourism – Bhutan via mail and explained to him our requirements. He promptly got back with an itinerary that suited all our requirements. He patiently answered all our questions regarding the places of visit and guided us with our itinerary. He even got all our permits arranged beforehand to save our time waiting in long queues at Phuentsholing and it was because of this that we were able to add Phobjikha in our tour itinerary (Getting permits to visit the places in Bhutan is a tedious task. They provide permits only during the weekdays and then there are restricted area permits for visiting Punakha and Phobjikha that have to be obtained separately). We were totally stress-free prior to our trip as Karma kept us updated with the booking arrangements.

      Our itinerary included Phuentsholing, Thimphu, Phobjikha, Punakha and Paro and all the stay, as well as transportation arrangements, were made by Karma. While on the trip, he was kind enough to give us a visit in Thimphu and speak with us personally to know if we were happy with his arrangements. Dorji, our guide along with the driver received us warmly from Bagdogra airport and they were with us throughout the trip. Dorji was a certified Bhutanese tour guide fluent in English, very knowledgeable and knew his way around. He narrated many hidden ancient folklores during our sightseeing and made sure we learnt about the Bhutanese culture, their spiritual beliefs, and their age-old traditions. Each day was well planned and was designed such that we had scope for flexibility as per our wishes. We even visited a school and interacted with children, all thanks to Dorji and our driver. Dorji took us on picturesque hikes, suggested that we did river rafting in Punakha, trekked with us to the Tiger’s Nest monastery in Paro, insisted that we taste some delicious Bhutanese food and fulfilled our wishes when we wanted to click Paro Dzong during the night time. Our driver ensured that he drove the vehicle at a comfortable pace to reduce the impact of winding roads and so many twists and turns on our health. Karma, the founder of Nature Tourism - Bhutan had booked some of the best hotels in beautiful locations at all the places and we did not have a single complaint regarding all his arrangements. Had we not booked our trip with Nature Tourism – Bhutan, we would have missed visiting Phobjikha valley, which was the best place of all in Bhutan. We are incredibly satisfied with the wonderful service provided by Nature Tourism – Bhutan and we highly recommend them to everyone who wants to book a care-free trip to Bhutan.

      We have written a series of articles named 'The Bhutan Odyssey' about the places that we visited in Bhutan and our experience with Nature Tourism - Bhutan. You can read them on Fairytale studios website (link to the site can be found in our TripAdvisor profile).

      I had the pleasure of having Karma Jamtsho's team lead me on a tour of Bhutan, first on a 11-day bus tour (17 people) across the country where all accommodations and transportation were arranged without a problem. Four of us then took a pack trip with them into the into the mountains west of Paro to see the high peaks first hand. I can recommend this tour group without reservations and look forward to a future expedition with them.

      We had a wonderful time visiting Bhutan for 9 days earlier this year. Everything was perfectly planned by Mr. Karma and we had no complaints whatsoever. The hotels selected in our package were great and could not have asked for better ones. Except our homestay in Phobjikha, we had a bathtub in all the hotels. We learnt so much from the guide jigme and became friends with him. He also ensured we get food to our liking everywhere. Overall everyone in our group loved Bhutan so much that we really want to visit it again. Such natural beauty, modern infrastructure and lovely people Bhutan has.

      This was my fifth visit to Bhutan. I am deeply impressed by their commitment to a radically original and transformational model of development - Gross National Happiness. They have managed to preserve the integrity of the culture and the health of the environment as they negotiate the challenging transition from a hereditary monarchy to a 21st century parliamentary democracy. Bhutan is also the world's only carbon-negative country!
