    Best Company for Bhutan Tour

    I have always been fascinated by mountains and often wondered how people in countries far away lived their life. After my friend said she was going for a Bhutan Tour, I would not let her go without me. We together did our research about lots of things, especially tour companies because you can go by yourself. Thank God! we found Sublime Trails. We contacted many tour companies but, I couldn't trust them but Ram was friendly, trustable and proved that they were the best. We had lots of fun during these 10 days. By the end of the tour, my love for Bhutan and mountains increased even more and I would definitely travel there once again. If you want to have the best time in Bhutan, go with Sublime Trails. Don't think further and book your trip to Bhutan this holiday and have fun.

    A Short and Sweet Tour in Bhutan

    I had just finished my tour in Nepal and I had heard about Bhutan from so many people. Because I had only few days left, I didn't think I could go to Bhutan Tour this time but Ram said that it was possible even if I had just 3 days left.  He managed to plan my short trip to Bhutan the same day and prepared everything for us. That way I flew to Bhutan unexpectedly. I had the best time during this holiday spending it in two beautiful Himalayan countries. If you want to spend your holidays in Nepal or Bhutan, I recommend Sublime Trails.
