Our USP is we are extremely passionate about BHUTAN and simply want our clients to experience Bhutan, as we LOCALs do #NOFILTER.

Authenticity and Sustainability is 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 development of local community. We understand, the only way to achieve this is to have 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, bespoke and sustainable programs.

Our one-stop hand-holding travel solutions, also extends to organizing bespoke specialized events, special permits, and flights & helicopter charters (Trophel Tours is an authorized passenger sales agent for Royal Bhutan Airlines). Our long presence in the market has enabled us to establish 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 Travel Experiences & Solutions.

Sonam Trophel Restaurant and Sonam Trophel Hotel in Paro, also operates under our umbrella. The restaurant is rated No. # 1 in TripAdvisor and has entertained many celebrities, including Richard Gere and Demi Moore. Lalita, the owner would be happy to take you through her home-made local recipes.

Responsible & Sustainable Tourism is in the heart of company’s ethos. Bhutan is a champion of responsible and green tourism. And has undertaken numerous initiatives to ensure that tourism is sustainable in long run and benefits would be enjoyed by generation to come. Consequently, as responsible stakeholder, we engage in this endeavor by:

  • Association with Youth Development Fund (YDF) to support youths requiring rehabilitation and other assistance.
  • Sponsoring Clean Bhutan initiatives.
  • Association with Barnyard Bhutan Animal Rescue & Sanctuary (Maya Foundation).
