Wangda, Your communication in planning our trip was outstanding, you made all the necessary arrangements, and our entire itinerary was filled generously, but not overloaded. The help and services of the trekking team was good. The weather would have been a little better but that was not in your hands, Thanks for a wonderful time to experience your lovely kingdom. Dawa was very knowledgeable in both the culture, flora and fauna as well as the political and general aspects in Bhutan. Very very satisfactory. Ugen was a very good driver, careful, courteous and always willing to stop for pictures, for watching birds, looking at flowers. He looked after the vehicle well, It was clean every day

What a wonderful and satisfying trip. Wangda and the team at Lakhor were great resources in helping to develop an itinerary that was right for myself and my family. And once arriving in Bhutan, everything was effortless. Our group felt well taken care of and completely accommodated. I recommend Lakhor highly. And if anyone has any questions about traveling with Lakhor, please feel free to e-mail me.

Our three man trek was exceptionally well organised and customised to our needs and schedule so that we saw the greatest variety of landscapes in the most effective time. Wangda is a fantastic guide and organiser with a terrific team. We felt like part of the family. The Bhutanese food was exceptional in its taste, presentation and nutritional balance.
Thanks guys for a challenging trek and a wonderful, memorable experience.

Our 10-day trip was very well organised by Wangda and his staff. We have 2 small children aged 1 and 4 and Wangda put a lot of effort into making our journey as comfortable and child friendly as possible. We did a variety of interesting activities including walks, dzong and monastery visits and a visit to the takin reserve. We even hit the town one night, with our driver Karma doubling up as a baby sitter in our hotel :) This was a very memorable and special holiday.

Our holidays in Bhutan is an experience that we will never forget. We didn’t know much about Bhutan when we arrived, and after 10 days trekking, biking, meeting Bhutanese people, we love the country and have promised to ourselves that we will come back soon.

I found Lakhor tours by chance in Internet and contacted Wangda to help me with the organization. I really think that we have been very lucky. Wangda offered to us an outstanding service during the preparation or the trip, and made us enjoy any single day of our stay. It was great to bike with such an experienced biker and to learn about Buddhism from someone who knows the past but represents the future of the Kingdom of Bhutan.

Thanks to Wangda and his team of Lakhor Tours our group of 3 ‘ladies’ had the most wonderful and intense experience of Bhutan. We felt absolutely spoilt and our expectations were exceeded in every aspect. We were very impressed by the level of knowledge, service, quality of accommodation and food, individual attention as well as the well designed trek which satisfied us enormously.
We hope to be back and do more of it, again with Wangda and his team. I will definitely recommend his services to anyone interested in visiting Bhutan.

I have known Wangda (Lakhor Tours Director)for over 10 years and have seen him develop his busines based upon principles of quality and customer service. His tours recognise and cater to the individual.

Wangda has an extensive knowledge of the geography, history and culture of the country and a friendly but not ‘in your face’ approach to supporting his guests. I unreservedly recommend Lakhor tours for the experience of as lifetime.

going to a place like Bhutan, that no one we know ever visited before we had tons of expectations and yet – we didn’t know what to expect… but meeting Wongda at the airport made it very clear that we are in the best hands in Bhutan. we had an amazing time in Bhutan guided by Wongda and Sange. they were tentative, kind, knowledgeable and did everything on their best. they solved every problem on the way even when it was the weather or “we need a birthday cake asap” :)
the day trip where beautiful, and the accommodation always in special places that had a “story” behind them.
we will defiantly recommend Wongda and Lakhor company to our friends.

Thank you, Wangda and team, for a fantastic experience in your extraordinary country. Our “holiday high” has lasted much longer than usual thanks to the beauty of Bhutan, the kindness we encountered at every turn, your commitment to our comfort, your delicious sense of humor, and whatever magic you performed to keep the summer rains at bay.

Bhutan is a wonderful destination and Wangda is a wonderful tour guide. Everything in our 6 day tour was meticulously organised as well as being flexible enough to meet our specific needs and interests. Wangda made us feel really at home and became a good friend in the short time we were there. We would strongly recommend Lakhor Tours to anyone thinking of visiting this fascinating country.

Our Tour Guide Wangda was informative,thoughtful and conscientious. He took very good care of us and made every possible effort to make our stay in Bhutan extremely comfortable and enjoyable. The mix of culture and trekking in our trip was a good experience.

We, a couple from Germany, spent two fantastic weeks in Bhutan in September 2010. Based on a recommendation from a friend we contacted Wangda directly. Wangda’s email information helped us to jointly plan our trip to this amazing country.

Everything went just perfect and we had a really wonderful time. We learned so many things and we couldn’t get enough of visiting Dhzongs and doing hikes in this breathtaking country.. Even better, nearly every day we were positively surprised about the friendly people and Bhutan’s cultural and natural heritage.
Wangda definitively knows everything about Buddhism and Bhutan. This made visiting Dhzongs and other places for us to an unexpected exciting affair. Wangda also brought us in contact with a lot of nice people, which made this trip unforgettable. We assume that Wangda at least knows half of Bhutan’s population.
Needless to say, that Wangda’s choice of accommodation and restaurants was perfect as well. In our comfortable and spacious car we always felt safe. Our driver Karma drove us absolutely professional through the long and winding roads of Bhutan.
We are already planning our next trip to Bhutan, doing the Jumolhari trek – of course together with Wangda.

Considering a holiday in Bhutan? I highly recommend Lakhor Tours and Trekking. Lakhor owner, Wangda Tobgyal, has been guiding tours for 10 years. He is an avid photographer, bike enthusiast and hiker and his love and appreciation for his country’s history, environment and culture, as well as his lively and engaging presentation style, made our tour a complete delight. Our group of 6 had diverse needs/expectations and Wangda handled all of them seamlessly and effortlessly. His attention to detail was apparent from our first email exchange. He was extremely responsive to our changing needs, both prior to and during the tour.

Our accommodations were great and our rooms always had the best view. Our meals were tasty and plentiful. Over our 12-day tour, Wangda took the time to get to know each of us and had endless patience answering all of our questions. I left with a true appreciation of Bhutan and feeling deeply grateful that Wangda was not only our guide, but a lifetime friend. Got questions? Feel free to email me.

Three of us Aussie bushwalkers had 20 days in Bhutan, including the 14-day Laya Trek. The organization and service by LAKHOR was excellent. The trek was the most memorable of my (long) life. I sincerely recommend a tour to this special country. The Bhutanese are wonderful people; a tour of their culture and country is a facinating experience. Many thanks to Wangda and your team.
