Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek is something that every trekker must take in his life. It is so poignant and brilliant. I totally loved this. WOW can be an understatement. The crystal clear, poignant lakes just give me goosebumps. The pristine lakes are so beautiful that you will forget yourself here. The trek is difficult, but nevertheless it is an amazing and a beautiful experience to say the least. I totally loved this trek and I just still can’t get enough of this trek. The experience would not have been this nice if the planning was bad. Special cheers to the team for handling the organization and planning of this tour in such a beautiful manner. If you are planning to have heartfelt trek, then look no further than here.

Me and my friends visited Bhutan this May. We took the flight from Kathmandu to Paro, it took us only an hour and we enjoyed the magnificent view over the highest mountains of Himalayas and the top of the world mount Everest. The great thing was that our programme was made in a way that the sightseeing of the historical places started the same day we landed. We had wonderful and caring guide Bijay who was telling the facts and stories in very detail. All the hotel were excellent quality and staff was helpful in every possible way. The food was so delicious, and we had possibility to choose which cuisine we want to try from locally grown organic foods to more western food. Our advice to try Bhutanese local beer that is really good. Also, it was nice experience to have hot stone bath after a long day-trek to Tiger Nest. I had really wonderful Six days in Bhutan and I can recommend Thrillophilia to everyone wishing to visit Bhutan.

I only had a few days to visit Bhutan. But I couldn't leave South Asia without at least seeing the storied kingdom. I had seen the architecture in photos, but the magnitude of the buildings in the scenery in which they sit is stunning! Thrillophilia made everything so easy. They created an itinerary, reservations and transportation quickly and efficiently. I felt like I was welcomed at the airport by a friend. I had some special requests that they were happy to arrange; even though no one had asked to do these things before. And they even changed the itinerary during the tour per my special request. I don't suggest making their lives more difficult like I did, but truly, I am so happy that I could be accommodated. Lodging was great, food was excellent, and the guide, along with the driver made it a trip to remember. I highly recommend Thrillophilia to anyone interested in exploring the Kingdom of Bhutan.
