Enjoyed our Bhutan trip
We had fantastic tour to Bhutan arranged by Eyes on Nepal & Siddartha. It was only for 3 days, but we managed to hike to Tiger nest. It was our dream to be there. Thimpu visit was a bit quick but we had no other choice. It would have been much nicer if we had one more extra day. Our thanks to our guide Sooman too for this wonderful experience.
