Hello again. Our tour was through Bhutan Expeditions based out of Thimphu, Bhutan and run by Tsewang Nidup. He is a very interesting and spiritual fellow whom we had the pleasure of meeting just prior to our trek as well as his lovely wife Ugyen. He would not join us on the trek but left us in the capable hands of Phuntsho our superb guide. Our driver Krishna was very safe and capable and we all felt very well taken care of. The crew on the trek consisted of an assistant guide Ugyen, a cook Legola, his helper Somna, two horsemen and 14 mules to transport all of the gear. The mules deserve so much credit as they worked tirelessly to haul all of the gear on at times treacherous trails. We had tents to sleep in at night and boiled water was provided. We were all amazed at the variety and quality of the meals provided in such primitive conditions. We were able to mainly focus on the trekking and the spectacular scenery…perfect.
I have included a few pictures of the people mentioned and note the traditional gho worn by the men and the kera by the women. Very practical and stylish.
