Amazing experience 3N/4D tour in Bhutan

October 11, 2023

We decided to book our Bhutan trip with Gokyo Treks and Expedition Agency, and it turned out to be the perfect choice. Their local agent in Paro organized our trip seamlessly. We had the opportunity to visit the breathtaking Tiger’s Nest, an incredible place in Bhutan.

Furthermore, we gained valuable insights into Bhutanese culture, met wonderful people, and experienced their way of life. From the moment we were picked up at the airport to our drop-off, everything was flawless. We highly recommend Gokyo company and their tours to Bhutan.
