Bhutan Far Fung Travel April 24th - May 5th

Jump to last reply

My wife and I had the pleasure of touring Bhutan this spring with Far Fung Travel. This was our first organized tour and as nervous as we were signing up for one, it couldn't have turned out nicer. As luck would have it, our group ended up consisting of one other couple and they were the perfect travel companions. Thank you D&L for everything.
We flew into Paro on a modern Air Bus and were met at the airport by our Far Fung Guide; Mr. Karchung and Driver; Mr. Cencho.
Cencho was an attentive and skilled driver and believe me, when traversing this winding Himalayan lane and a half wide blacktop highway, one wants a very good driver. Likewise, our guide Karchung was friendly, unbelievably knowledgable and flexible to the groups desire for lots of free time to hike and explore on our own. Both of these guys took good care of us and totally deserve an A.
In truth, the hotels were a little rough but that's ok. We accepted this as part of the charm. The friendly staff always did their best.
There were many highlights but some of my favorites were; a visit and tea at Karchungs home, a local festival and the hike to the cliff hugging temple called the Tigers Nest.
The people of Bhutan were wonderful and I recommend a visit soon before this last of it's kind destination is changed forever.

Sorry that round one posted before I was done.
