The Bhutan Kingdom is located in the southern part of Mount Everest. The mountains in Bhutan, which offer postcard-worthy sceneries, are home to countless historical monasteries. Most of our customers admire sceneries and learn about Bhutanese culture and history by hiking to those monasteries.

Brilliant Druk-path Trek with exciting cultural sightseeing
My husband and I were so glad to travel to Bhutan for the Druk-path Trek. Kyle from Asia Odyssey Travel carefully planned out our itinerary and it was expertly carried out.
Upon arrival, our guide Namgay and driver Tshering took great care to make sure our trip was smooth and funny. Namgay was helpful and knowledgeable. He was flexible to made the adjustments according to my requests during the trek. It was amazing that the cook was able to bake a cake on our last day in the mounts in the middle of nowhere. We also explored Paro, Thimphu, and Punakha, every single day of our trip was well organized with interesting. I will highly recommend this company if you are interested in a unique Bhutan trip.
A memorable trekking journey to the Himalayan country in the clouds
We did a 12-day trek with the itinerary designed by Rita. She did a great job for us. We totally recommend the Bumthang Owl Trek, we hiked through beautiful rhododendron forests, icy streams, and yak trails up and down the valley. Hearing the owls at night was just incredible. It was the best trekking experience we've had. We were so lucky to have a bird's eye view of the Himalayan mountains. Thanks much to Asia Odyssey Travel for realizing us a trekking trip so different and memorable.
Exceptional Horse Trekking Tour in Bhutan
It was my second trip to Bhutan and the itinerary was absolutely what I wanted! This exceptional trip was extremely well organized by Kyle. As a solo female traveler, my guide and driver were like family, I never felt unsafe during the tour. The 5-day camping/horse trek in the mountains of Bumthang is exceptional and the highlight of my tour. Each day we rode between 3-5 hours on a variety of different trails and the scenery was great. Thank you all! I would recommend this company to anyone.
Laya-Gasa Trek with Authentic Bhutan Tours
We were a couple hoping to embark on a 20 days adventure in Bhutan. It came out with a wonderful experience that we never forget. Our guide Tshering was always there when we needed him, and we had much private time to reflect on our trip.
For the 13 days on the trail, the tents were in great shape, the shower tent was set up at regular intervals, and the food was healthy and diverse. What is more, this trek happened to coincide with Jholomari and the Laya Highland festival. We were so excited to join their brilliant traditions. The Bhutanese people are open, kind, and curious. We felt so welcome! Such a great trip! Thanks, Asia Odyssey Travel! You really went above and beyond our expectations.
A truly wonderful Snow Leopard Trek
My daughter and I just returned from a 2-week trip to Bhutan including the Snow Leopard Trek (Lonely Planet calls the Jhomolhari Trek) with Asia Odyssey Travel. They are very professional and our Bhutan trip was well-planned from the very beginning to end. Our trekking will not be so wonderful without our knowledgeable guide Kishore, excellent driver Dago, and kind cooks and horsemen. I never thought I'd make it over the 16,000' pass, but I made it with the help of the support team.
Jangbi to Korphu Trek Tour of Bhutan
Bhutan is always on my bucket list and this year it became reality. I did the wild and amazing trek in the southern part of Bhutan- following the trail that Guru Rinpoche traveled hundreds of years ago. Thanks to Rita and his team who tried their best to accommodate all I need. Excellent trekking crew and chef. Would highly recommend Asia Odyssey Travel to everyone for a super Bhutan experience!
