Really appreciate YANA’s professional organization of the entire trip. Could not imagine how a trekking trip could such be well organized – more or less like a 5-star hotel with the only difference of we were at more than 3,000 above sea level. Special thanks to Yeshey and the chef who had given tons of assistance when I was descending due to attitude sickness. – Simon Liu, Hong Kong
Thank you Sonam & Yeshey for leading our recent Druk Path Trek. Your operation is first class and very much exceeded our expectations in all aspects. Your attention to details made Bhutan and this trekking experience very special to us. Also thank you Tashi for your wonderful hospitality in both Paro and Thimphu. – Russell Yeh, Hong Kong
Thanks again for your kind hospitality. We all had a great time trekking in Bhutan and hope to come back for another trek. Most of us are back at our desks catching up with work. Please let us know if you come to HK so that we can return your hospitality. – Jonathan Leung, Hong Kong
It was a beautiful trip. The people were wonderful, the scenery and culture were amazing, the tradition were fascinating. Our guide, Sonam was very knowledgeable, great laugh, available but not intrusive, happy to make last minute changes (bikes and rafting). – Bridget Randolph and David Biller, HONG KONG
The YANA Team is excellent. Choki & Dawa were superb and everything they planned and did was really well executed. Thank you so much for everything. It was a wonderful trip. – Nandana Mariwala & Family, MUMBAI
The planning of our itinerary was thorough and well thought out such that we get to see the best of Bhutan. We get to see Bhutanese traditions in all their authenticity and interact with the locals. The cultures and architecture are well explored, and we go home with the feeling that we have truly seen what it is to be a Bhutanese. The trip was simply awesome. The people are just so happy, relaxed, peaceful and content. The cultural heritage here is rich, and the hospitality of the locals cannot be overstated. There is a really pious atmosphere that should be preserved and shown to more people from around the world for their spiritual benefit. And YANA has managed to let us see this beautiful simplicity, originality and spirituality that is Bhutan. – Dato Mah Hang Soon & Family, MALAYSIA
We loved learning about the history, principles, religion and goals of Bhutan. The experience was so diverse in all that we were exposed to. We are inspired in many ways by Bhutan and the Bhutanese people. The overall cost was very reasonable for the one-on-one attention we received, great accommodations and the overall experience of the tour. Choki was great. He is very knowledgeable about Bhutan’s history, the Buddhist religion, and current affairs. He was very patient with all our questions, attentive without being intrusive, fun and funny! A great guy! – Karen Frank, CA, USA.
Sonam Peljore was a respectful guide. He was knowledgeable about his country, and passionate about his religion. He was always flexible and eager to meet our needs. He is a wonderful asset to your company and his country. We enjoyed everything about the tour except the long bumpy roads. The photographic opportunities were endless and the people were very friendly. The scenery is among the most beautiful in the whole world. We also learnt a lot about Buddhism. This truly was a wonderful life experience. – NATE & HARRIET MILLER, FLORIDA, USA
We were looked after very well from the moment we flew into Paro and were greeted at the airport to our final day at Tiger’s Nest. The Bhutan experience was indeed very pleasurable and memorable. – Christine Snowball, AUSTRALIA
Wonderful experience particularly staying wide ranges of traditional accommodations. Yeshey was very knowledgeable and friendly. He accommodated our needs as a group and was very flexible. His stories were great to hear and I looked forward to hearing more. Thank you for everything. – Sharon Blazely, AUSTRALIA.
