Absolutely Amazing Tour of Bhutan!
We are a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 8 & 10 have just returned from a 10 day trip to Bhutan, and we are really glad we used the services of Bhutan Pelyab Tours & Treks for our family trip. From start to finish, we had the most amazing time. Starting from the initial interactions regarding itinerary finalization till the drop off to the airport, this has entirely been a smooth and seamless process. Our driver Richen was great. The roads in Bhutan are treacherous and he handled them with ease. Our tour guide Thinley were so patient and caring towards our needs; whether it was the treks & hikes, food preferences we had, arrange school visit, local home dining and farm house stay, wearing Goa and Kira for Tsechu festival, teaching my kids to play archery… and also being so patient with the millions of photos we took all over the place! Thinley also helped us adjust the itinerary as per our requirements accommodating any last minute requests or changes very patiently. We would highly recommend Bhutan Pelyab Tours & Treks; very hardworking and sincere group of people who take your trips as their projects to ensure a smooth, happy and memorable Bhutan experience.
We travelled with Bhutan Pelyab for 9D8N and had a GREAT experience. Our guide Karma, and driver Nick-Ki (sorry I don’t how to spell his name) were just awesome. They are friendly, helpful, reliable and the vehicle was always clean, stocked with water and I was really impressed that every time when I returned to the car and I found that my jackets left on the seat were tidied up. Bhutan Pelyab's choice for accommodations was spot on and the trip was organised in a professional way from start to finish. Particularly we enjoyed the days spent in the Phojikha Valley and Langtey. The scenery had definitely took our breath away! We had an awesome time and enjoyed every minute of our trip. Thank you Guys for bringing us the fun and joy. It was the trip of a lifetime! Thank you!
Above and Beyond Excellent Service, Expertise and Hospitality
My group (4 adults, 3 kids aged 11, 10 and 8) have just returned from what can only be described as a magical 9 days with Bhutan Pelyab. After researching and communicating with several Bhutan tour agencies, I chose Pelyab based on the promptness of reply by Ugyen Wangdi (agency owner), his quick understanding of our needs, and above all his genuinely warm demeanor. We were able to fully customize our itinerary, which was focused on day hikes and cultural activities, as well as adventurous, high-quality dining. Our accommodations, selected by Ugyen, were also excellent and generous. Although we had set a basic framework to our itinerary in the planning process, our guide, Tenzin, and our driver, Dorji, allowed us complete freedom to select and change the activities and pace that we required, on the fly, which is essential for a group including kids. We were initially concerned about our kids' ability to do the hiking, but the trails that Tenzin chose were not only completely doable and enjoyable for our kids, but strenuous and stunning enough to satisfy the adults. Tenzin led us on some of his own favorite hikes, and his knowledge of the area was superb. I can't stress this enough.. Tenzin, Ugyen and Dorji literally stopped at nothing to satisfy our every request. They made sure we were able to visit the most important sites, hike the most stunning trails and eat the most delicious food on offer. We never felt rushed, or "templed out", or pressured to do our buy anything. If you are contemplating a trip to Bhutan, you would do well to select Bhutan Pelyab as your tour operator.
Me and my friend decided to have an adventurous trip to Bhutan and choosing Bhutan Pelyab Tours was definately a good choice. We wanted a customize tour and Bhutan Pelyab was very accommodating with our plans. Karma our tour guide and Tsheten our driver was really professional and went an extra length to take good care of us throughout our 7 days in Bhutan. Karma joined us throughout our hike from Tsaluna to Paro for 3days and 2 nights and Bhutan Pelyab arranged a very experienced trek team to make sure our tents, food and etc are taken care of. We only had to think about our trekking and nothing else! We were feeling pampered throughout our 3day hike. On the last day, Mr.Ugyen arranged a suprised dinner at a farm house and even gave us a a gift as a token of appreciation. I would highly recommend Bhutan Pelyab Tours for anyone who is seeking a memorable adventurous tour.

The glamorous landscape of Bhutan is one that cannot be found anywhere else. A large part of the country is covered by the dense forests, which explains why Bhutan is the first and only carbon-negative nation in the world. The climate here is varied due to the differences in the altitude, from subtropical valleys to alpine peaks, thus the extremely diverse flora and fauna. Our Bhutan tour plans will give customers an opportunity to discover the magnificent nature of Bhutan. Rare and endangered animals like Takin (Bhutan’s national animal), snow leopards, blue sheep, red pandas or elephants can be seen on the high rugged mountains or in the forests. Bhutan’s mountain ranges are the perfect place for trekkers to come and challenge themselves. During your visit, you will come across the Dzongs (fortresses) and the glorious monasteries perching on the Himalayan mountain range.
Climate is an important condition to be considered for any visit to Bhutan as it can be quite unpredictable. In spring (March to June), it can be cloudy with warm temperature. Spring is the time that wildlife and flowers are the most vibrant, making the landscape stunning than ever. Bhutan is one of the best destinations for bird-watching, especially around this season of the year. Some species that one can look out for on their road: Ibisbill, Brown Dipper, Darjeeling Woodpecker, Magpie Robin, Eurasian Jay, and there are more for you to discover. If you are a sport lover, congrats! The spring weather is ideal for cycling, river rafting, kayaking and there will be an international marathon as well so look out for these events. Summer monsoon is the season of heavy rainfalls that can block the view from the mountains. Winter in the central valleys of Punakha, Monggar is cool and dry, yet it is much tougher in other areas with snowfalls. But the clear sky in winter offers the perfect condition for photography. The best time to travel to Bhutan is autumn (September – November), when it is still warm with a clear sky – great season for trekking and hiking. You can witness the spectacular view of some of the tallest unclimbed mountains in the world during this time. Thimphu Tshechu festival and Jambay Lhakhang Drup Tshechu festival are the two famous and exciting festivals that you should look forward to in late September and October. October in Bhutan sees a remarkable sight as the valleys become a shade of gold, when the rice crops are to be harvested.

People treat others with respect and kindness. Dzongs, chortens, monasteries are built for the main purpose of teaching and practicing Buddhism. Prayer flags are hung near religious sites, in the forests, on the bridges and along the mountain passes in Bhutan; the Bhutanese believe prayers will be spread by the wind to every corner of the earth. You can see people, old and young, twirling praying wheels and fingering praying beads in the chortens and temples. Every house in Bhutan has a choeshum (altar room) for prayers and meditation.
In our Bhutan tour plans, we highly recommend you to try some of the local food as this is the way to understand the culture authentically.
