Travel to Bhutan where centuries old traditions blend harmoniously with modern times to create a fairytale realm like no other. Over the years, Bhutan has generated a lot of interest on varying subjects of which perhaps our institution of monarchy, our spiritual values, our democracy that was thrust upon us, our development philosophy of Gross National Happiness and, our unique culture that’s thriving, our prominence as the only carbon neutral country in the world and our distinction as one of the Top 10 global hotspot for biodiversity.

Some of our stories, small as they may be, are unprecedented, and have all the ingredients to inspire others in a big, big way.

Yes, Bhutan is a country like no other. Visit Bhutan, it is unique, it is different, and it is truly inspiring and fascinating.

Our Reviews from Past Clients

Memorable trip to Bhutan with Yak Holidays

Everything was taken care of by Yak Holidays, We were in Bhutan in March for a 12 days vacation in Bhutan. We saw everything we wanted to. Because it was just my wife and I if we wanted to change the itinerary it was no problem. Our guide Mandhoj and driver Yuda were wonderful.

I have no idea how Yuda drove through those mountain passes with Yaks, dogs, rocks, cows, horses, landslides etc almost every step of the way. Mandhoj is an amazing man, his English was great as was his Spanish- he is a passionate guide, and extremely knowledgeable. All of the hotels were good, and all of the stops worthwhile.

My trip to Bhutan was an amazing adventure.

I was greeted with warmth upon arrival at the Paro International Airport and my guide and driver were fun to be with. My Bhutan itinerary was bountiful and flexible which was great as some of the visits were quite quick. I very much enjoyed the temples and the vast history. My guide was very knowledgeable!

I was also greeted by Mr Sithar, the owner of the company, who came out to meet me in person. This was such a lovely gesture. I highly recommend a Bhutan trip with Yak Holidays Int’l. and I know that I will be back to Bhutan with them to see more of this amazing country.
