Gasa Hot Spring Tour

Sometimes, geological fissures allow water to percolate to the earth’s fiery insides. Often, this water, now warmed by geothermal heat, surfaces again in pools known as natural hot springs. The Himalayas, the youngest fold mountain range in the world, is dotted by a profusion of such springs. In Bhutan these are known as tsachus which means Hot Springs. The mineral-rich water is believed to heal a variety of diseases and ailments. Perhaps the best known tsachu is the one in Gasa.

Located a 15-minute walk from the nearest road, the Gasa Hot spring boasts three bathing houses with varying water temperatures. You could hence choose the one you’re most comfortable in. Although it is common practice to start at the coolest pool and then progressively move to the warmer ones. Be assured that animals in Bhutan, wild or domestic, haven’t learned how to open doors. So the bath houses remain free from contamination by them. Itinerary on request.

Alpine Flower Tour

Bhutan is such a place where the altitude within a 100-kilometre radius can climb from a few hundred to over 7,000 metres. Or where over 70 percent of the area is covered by forests. The range of climates, habitats and biodiversity richness thus make a feast for a naturalist!

The Alpine flower tour in Bhutan generally takes between a week to 10 days depending on your choice. A trek that will cover a range of habitats between 200 to 5,000 metres above sea level.  Magnolias, rhododendrons and other spring flowers can be seen in spring. The ideal time for catching the Bhutan’s temperate and alpine flowers is May-June, as the rainy summer sets in. The Snow may fall on the high passes but not lie long. The sunny, clear periods, when encountered, afford arresting views, memories and pictures.

My Bhutan Tour was well organized.

I went on a Bhutan tour for a 2-week experience in April 2015 and all the arrangements were done by YAK HOLIDAYS INT’L. I travel a lot, and I have never had a company be so prompt with replies – within 30 minutes mostly! – so effective with communication, so easy to pay, and with absolutely everything just running smoothly all the way. Mr Sithar and his staff are just on the ball! Bhakta was my very knowledgeable and patient guide, and Passang the calm and safe driver, and I never worried even over the worst roads. I stayed in lovely hotels, had too much lovely food, had amazing walks in the country and to temples, and took thousands of photos…. Bhutan is an amazing country to visit, and you need a well organized trip to get full value for your money.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending YAK HOLIDAYS INT’L to you. Travel to Bhutan with them..! They are 5-stars all the way!

My Tours to Bhutan from 1st to 9th April 2018.

My name is Shan, a friend of Stephanie during the trip in Bhutan from 1st to 9th April 2018. Firstly, I would like to give compliments on the tour guides assigned to us (kinga and Tashi). Both guides are very professional in conveying the amazing cultural of Bhutan.

Especially Tashi, our guide, who have spent 6 days with us. He was really careful in planning out our travelling route and try to show us as much activities/sites as possible. We are grateful that he has helped to planned out our meals according to our preference. He is really a very thoughtful guide. His explanation on Bhutan culture was also simply amazing, knowing every detail of places we visited. Personally, i really love the hikes that he planned too. Being a city kid, it is a really refreshing experience for me to hike in different area in Bhutan! I hope to go back one day.

Awesome Bhutan Tour.

I am grateful that you have assigned us an experience guide Kinga and driver kota. While on the mountain roads, I am able to see him carefully avoiding ALL the rocky areas and tries to ensure a smoother ride for us. There are really no lazy short cut moments from him at all. Apart from this, he is also helpful and careful in handling our luggages as well.
And of course, I am also happy to meet you, Mr Sithar! Thanks for having lunch with us and sharing your interesting stories! Thanks for your gift bags and informative book on Bhutan as well! Is a pity we do not have more time to chit chat! Please allow me to congratulate on your new life with your love one as well!

I had such a great time in Bhutan and it was really fantastic. I hope to go back again someday and of course through Yak Holidays International who are experienced and prompt in getting all documentations done.
Thank you once again and wishing you the best.
