The Lieblich Family
Our whole family would like to thank you and Sacred Himalaya Travel for such an enjoyable and incredible trip. Your hospitality and concern for every aspect of our journey went beyond our expectation and allowed us to completely relax and enjoy the natural and spiritual beauty of Bhutan. We especially appreciate your knowledge of Bhutanese culture and Buddhist philosophy and your ability to create circumstances for us to get directly engaged in both.
Led by Tshetem and his staff at Sacred Himalaya Travel, four of us completed an 18 day version of the Snowman Trek starting in Sephu walking in to Thanza and returning via Dur in October 2014. This route into the Lunana Valley is a challenging and stunning cross section of Bhutan. Sacred Himalaya Travel and his staff provided excellent service, support, and food despite a very remote setting. We had three hot meals per day, morning and afternoon tea, and hot water bottles at night.
I completed a version of the Snowman Trek in October 2014 with Sacred Himalaya Travel (SHT) going from Sephu - Thanza - Dhur in 18 days. Tshetem Norbu, General Manager of Sacred Himalaya Travel, led our group of four hikers from Alaska and was supported by 4 of his staff and contract yaks and herders. The 18 days included 3 layover days for rest and acclimatization. We had generally excellent weather and no significant health nor logistical issues.
Thank you for a wonderful and memorable experience trip to Bhutan. Your tour company, Sacred Himalaya Travel made the trip a wonderful and relaxing journey into your country, Bhutan, that I will always cherish and never forget it. I have enjoyed the country wonderful landscape, culture, hotel accommodation, food, transportation, the drivers, big Dorji , little Dorji, tour guides Jigme and yourself. What a beautiful country with such history and the Buddhist religion behind it. Everyone has been such gracious and helpful that no wonder Bhutan is the called the "Gross National Happiness". I have nothing to complain about your travel agency and your group. Please say hello and a big Thank You to everyone for me. This trip has been a once in a lifetime experience.
Tshetem and his colleagues, 3 other guides, took great care to give us all an unforgettable and memorable experience. They planned the itinerary and no detail was neglected. Our trip was unusual as we entered from the east of the country and travelled by bus to the west. This was an amazing opportunity to see and feel the varied landscape of Bhutan. We had wonderful and diverse accommodations throughout. Each of our two buses had a guide who was completely knowledgeable about every aspect of Bhutanese culture and history, flora and fauna. They answered every question from our group imaginable. I’m very grateful to have been a part of the tour and that we all had the fortune to be guided throughout by SACRED HIMALAYA TRAVEL. I’m still absorbing all that I was exposed to and enjoying the memories.
