Walks in Bhutan
The social mix gelled remarkably quickly and we all had an excellent time.
Martin Sinker (Trinity 1962)
"It was an absolutely wonderful experience.
Zara Fleming is truly outstanding in her depth of knowledge and expertise, not to mention being able to converse with monks and locals. Also she adapted our plans with remarkable coolness in the face of unseasonably heavy rains, roads blocked by landslides etc. and she calmly fielded and responded to the wildest of requests from members of the group.
Our local Bhutanese guide Tsheten and driver Dorji were also both excellent, and Surrendra in Kathmandu was a really interesting guide for our brief periods there.
I had not met any of our fifteen-member group before, but the social mix gelled remarkably quickly and we all had an excellent time. Losing one day’s walking to rain was unavoidable, and in general the mix of walks and monastery/temple visits etc. worked well and, at 72, I found the walking to be pleasant exercise rather than over-demanding.
The booking process and tour management by Daniel at Distant Horizons was seamlessly efficient.
So all round, full marks!"
