“I was excited to finally go to Bhutan, but could never have imagined just how wonderful the trip would be. From the breathtaking vistas, to the contemplative temples, our journey was filled with natural and spiritual beauty. And oh the wonderful people we met! All our gratitude to Druk Asia and to Khedrupchen Rinpoche for the intimate hospitality.”

“Visiting Bhutan had been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. But taking this trip with 1880 exceeded everything I could have imagined. The Bhutanese people with their hospitality, humor, and happiness will be my friends forever. And the spirituality and serenity of the monasteries and mountains will be something that I’ll keep with me always. I can’t wait till I can visit again!”

“Bhutan spoke to my soul. It gave me an alternative view to how life can be lived. Sustainable. Conscious. Still human with struggles but more compassionate. What struck me most was the stillness and contemplation that seemed to be in the air”
