Meet Our Local Leaders

No one knows the land like those who grew up on it. We have high standards when selecting our local leaders. A local leader is more than just a guide. They are your keys to walk into nature, mingle with the locals, and learn stories behind ancient towns and villages.

I have experiences leading trekking tours in Everest regions, Annapurna region and other wilderness areas.

Yeshey T. Bhutan

Hi! I am Yeshey and my friends and guests call me YT. Before I became a tour guide, I was working as a Radio Jockey at one of the most popular stations in Thimphu. It was a great opportunity for me to practice my speaking skills and enhance my knowledge of my country. However, I’ve always been a traveler since I was young and I am eager to see what the world looks likeI soon realized that being a Radio Jockey can no longer satisfy my needs. And that was the reason why I decided to become a tour guide. I have been a tour leader for the past 10 years. I enjoy sharing Bhutan's culture and wisdom with my guests; and in return I also get chances to learn about foreign cultures from guests all over the world. I have received a lot of good words from my guests regarding my services. I am also inspired to further strengthen my guiding skills by seeing the happy faces and smiles form my guests. I love what I am doing. When I am not working, I like hanging out with friends and playing basketball.

My father used to work as a bus driver for one of the first tour companies in Bhutan. Because of that, I have heard many interesting stories about may father being with guests and got a lot of exposure to the travel industry. Naturally, after I graduated from college, I decided to become a tour guide. Till now, I have been leading tours for 6 years. I love what I am doing and I am proud to host guests from all over the world and share the beauty of my beloved country.
