About the experience

We can host up to 11 travelers

With more then 15 years of experience in adventure travelling, we have been doing an honest business and in that time, we have seen travelers bridging gaps between faiths and cultures and proving thereby that we live in a small world, a world with both constructive similarities and fascinating differences. With a small group of fervent guides and travel experts, Wind Horse Tours was officially launched in Bhutan in 1998. Since then we have expanded cautiously; with office in Minneapolis, followed by operation office in Delhi and Gangtok, Sikkim. In 2011, we have added a Sales and Support team in Phuntsholing, at the border of India and Bhutan, which is also conveniently close to Nepal and Sikkim. Although we have worked for many years in Nepal, even before starting in Bhutan, we have not had our own operation team, so finally we added our own in 2014. Recently, we have also added Europe Sales offices in Netherlands. With network of offices, our guests receive round-the -clock fanatical support before and during the trip. We enjoy bringing you trips and are dedicated to using our joint expertise and experience to offer you some of the best journeys in the Himalayas. You can learn about customs; participate in religious ceremonies, festivals and holidays and share with them their joy of dancing, singing, smiles and laughter. Eat! Celebrate! And Explore! All Groups are escorted by highly qualified, seasoned local guides, whose years of experience and expertise contribute to your unbeatable adventure.

Rinzin Jamtsho is among the fortunate few who have seen tourism in Bhutan growing in stature from close quarter in term of tourism infra structures, growth in tourists etc. To a fair degree he has been part of the process of the slow and cautious opening of tourism in Bhutan to the outside world. After finishing his bachelor degree from Bhutan, he joined Bhutan Tourism Board, as a man behind the formulation and application of Bhutan Tourism policies. Sitting behind the desk was hardly the way he perceived his career to roll out, With passage of time, his innate sense of adventure was asking more questions than he could find answers to. Finally, after serving for 13 years as government officer in Tourism Board in a elite capacity, his intrinsic sense of adventure got better of him. He quit and subsequently met Ugen, whose proposals was congenial to the kind of work he envisioned. He joined Wind Horse Tours in 2008 as a managing partner. He hold the mantle of Promotion & Marketing of Wind Horse office, Thimphu. This jobs takes him far and wides places, sometime as far as London, Berlin, Moscow to attend trade fairs.

In his career spanning under two decades, it took him to Austria, Singapore for studies and training to polish his deep rooted love for adventures and it cultivated a fresh perspective for Tourism in Bhutan.
He is instrumental in materializing the long standing collective vision of Wind Horse Ranch and Riding club, a low carbon footprint products. He is at helm of affairs and being a good horse rider himself, he is at ease at horse ranch, when he is free.

At Windhorse, it is the whole concept of travel that we love because we believe that getting there is as much fun as being there and which is why we use the best in transport, eat out at great local restaurants and hold up at luxurious as well as family run hotels. At Wind Horse, we talk a lot about experience. It isn’t just talk. For us, travel is about experience – true experience – becoming involved with a place and its people. The message we’ve had from our travelers over the past nine years is that they feel the same way. Great travel is an experience of cultures, cuisines, history, people, natural beauty and change.

We are often asked why we don’t extend our style of travel into other corners of the globe. Again, it all comes down to experience – as yours as a traveler and ours as a company.
