Introduction


Yu-Druk Tours and Treks is among the oldest travel agencies in Bhutan established when the tourism industry was privitized in 1991. From the start we specialized in personalized services catering to the individual needs of our guests. Over the years we have honed our skills in personalized services and have moved away from quantity to quality. While other travel agencies favor catering to large groups, we prefer to serve smaller groups - at the same rates as the larger groups.

Travel itineraries can consequently be designed to suit the individual needs of our guests. If you choose to travel with us we will provide all the information required to make the best itinerary for a pleasant and memorable journey to Bhutan.

Yu means turquoise, Druk means dragon. Yu Druk basically translates to turquoise Dragon.

Bhutan: Secret Shangri-La


Bhutan is the best-kept secret in the travel industry. Due to its relative isolation, the country is not known to the outside world and until 1960, western visitors rarely visited the country. Burt Kerr Todd, the first American to ever visit Bhutan, wrote in a National Geographic article on Bhutan (Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon; December 1952):

Bhutan lies squarely in the center of the Himalayas, amid the highest mountains on earth... in its 18,000 square miles can be found such variety of climate and scenery, such grandeur and peacefulness, and such fascination of the novel and unknown as few countries its size can boast. Its neighbors are Tibet to the north, Sikkim to the west, India's West Bengal and Assam to the south and east.

The "fascination of the novel and unknown" to this day continues to enthral visitors to Bhutan. Unlike neighboring countries which encourage mass tourism, the Royal Government of Bhutan has chosen a more cautious policy on tourism largely to preserve its natural and cultural heritage. Visitors to Bhutan can feel the benefits of this policy and have a rich and unique travel experience.

There has never been a "visit Bhutan year" rather the country awaits to be discovered and explored and Yu-Druk promises to be your guide and fellow traveller on this journey of discovery.
