About Trophel Tours & Treks

Trophel Tours & Treks is an inclusive, Bhutan based travel agency focused on curating authentic tailor-made holidays to Bhutan. Authenticity and Sustainability are key to our travel programs. We work on the belief that the best advice is born out of authentic personal destination experience. Our philosophy is a simple one. To offer you the best possible tour experience and contribute to the development of local Bhutanese communities. We understand, the only way to achieve this is to have a genuine local expert guide you and curate a holiday around your interests, needs, budget and with total commitment to quality. While many travel agencies claim to have experts, we believe few, if any, match our expertise for genuine first-hand knowledge on authentic and bespoke programs to Bhutan, given that all our travel advisors are born, bred and have many years of experience in creating bespoke tours to Bhutan.

Established in 1994 by Chencho Thinley, Trophel tours is essentially a family run business. The team is managed by Vishal, along with this wife Sonam. Our USP is we are extremely passionate about BHUTAN and simply want our clients to experience Bhutan, as we LOCALs do #NOFILTER. Our one-stop hand-holding travel solutions also extends to organising specialised events, special permits, and flights & helicopter charters (Trophel Tours is an authorised passenger sales agent for Royal Bhutan Airlines). Our long presence in the market has enabled us to establish a strong personal partnership with tourism stakeholders (Resort, Hotels, Restaurants, Government agencies, Transport, Airlines and Tourism Board) thus allowing us to offer superior service delivery, value for money and most importantly authentic Bhutanese travel experiences

We also operate Sonam Trophel Restaurant and Sonam Trophel Hotel (B&B) in Paro.  Our restaurant has been rated No. # 1 on TripAdvisor and is one of the oldest restaurant catering to tourist in Paro. Lalita, the owner specialises in home-made local recipes and would be happy to talk to you about her recipes or if required organise a session on Bhutanese cooking class and you get to hear her inside stories of, what she cooked for Richard Gere and Demi Moore.
