Best Country, Best Travel Company, Best Experience! I have visited 25 countries and Bhutan is my favorite country. The minute we arrived we knew we were on sacred land. Bhutan is beautiful, profoundly peaceful, and the people have loving hearts. The steep trek up to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery is worth the breathtaking beauty at the top. Maebar Travel is the best. The owner, Tsenrig was very gracious and took the time to meet us. Being with him was like spending time with an old friend. Tour guide Dorji is very knowledgeable, kind, patient, and a living example of compassion. Driver Kezang also made sure we were safe and well taken care of. If you plan on visiting beautiful Bhutan, don’t hesitate to go with Maebar Travel. They will take care of you every step of the way.
