Book Bhutan Tour is the outcome of a career in International Cooperation. For the past 15 years, I have worked for German Technical Cooperation (GIZ), Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation (HSI), and the Swiss Agency for Development & Cooperation (SDC) in Bhutan; it gave me vast experience in office management, logistics, and guiding. I have accompanied trekkers on all trekking routes of Bhutan, from the high Himalayas to lower altitude sub-tropical zones. I have also traveled to many European and South East Asia countries which back me up with global knowledge.
Additionally, I expanded my skills with a graduate course in Advanced Management at Kesetsart University Thailand in 2007.
I enjoy every tour as a new and unique experience. Basic knowledge of flora & fauna identification, bird watching, and textiles, as well as a sound knowledge of religious sites and adventure travel in Bhutan, turns every journey into something new, something fascinating.
I am very happy to welcome you to my country, show you its wonders and help you get in touch with its beauty. It’s my pleasure to turn your wishes into reality as I am seeing my dream of a travel agency that truly connects Bhutan to people from all over the world come true.

On my first visit to Bhutan, I instantly fell in love with the country’s dramatic and varied landscapes, its culture and spiritual heritage, and above all the kindness and happiness of its people. It felt only natural to want to share this with others and consequently I now arrange and lead cultural and walking tours in Bhutan with an emphasis on joyfulness! Optional activities offered in these Joyful Tours include yoga and meditation often practiced outdoors in the most stunning of locations. I also assist with fundraising and raising awareness of the charity Opening Your Heart to Bhutan (founded by Emma Slade/Ani Pema Deki.
