Dorji Phalam Travels is a travel company licensed by the Tourism Council of Bhutan, an autonomous body that oversees the tourism industry. Dorji Phalam Travels is run and owned by Passang Dorji. Passang is one of the few trained professional tour guides in the country.
What distinguishes Dorji Phalam Travels from other tour companies in the country is that the owner and managers of the company know about the country very well. We are well versed with the country’s politics, culture, environment and its guiding development philosophy of Gross National Happiness to list a few.
Dorji Phalam Travels has a group of professional tour guides who have been in the tourism industry for decades. Each tour guide is specialized in his or her field. If you come to Bhutan for cultural tour we have our cultural tour guides accompanying you. If you come to trek Bhutan’s mountains we have our trekking guides at your service. If you are in Bhutan to explore its history, politics and society we have a group of experts who you could meet during your tour. For those interested in spiritual tourism in the tradition of Tantric Buddhism, we will organize retreats, talks, and meditations.
Last year I decided to just do it since Bhutan was unlikely to change its tourism rules. Trying to figure out which travel agency to go with was daunting. There are so many! I decided to go with a new one (I thought maybe they’d try harder) – Dorji Phalam Travels – and I must say, I chose well.Vancouver, Canada
