Gems Bhutan Travels- Experience Authentic Bhutan Travels with Nature

Hello! Kuzu Zangpo!

Warm greetings and best wishes from “Bhutan: Happiness Is A Place”. I am Gem Tshering, Founder and CEO of Gems Bhutan Travels (GBT). We are an inbound tour operator, founded in 2012, with a vision to contribute to transforming the travel and tourism landscape in Bhutan, managed “for, of and by people” in a crowded space, which is increasingly (and unfortunately) becoming more automated and herd-mentality driven. Our reputation for ensuring high quality services and unmatched Bhutanese hospitality experiences for our guests has kept us at the forefront Bhutan’s travel and tourism industry.

We set and live high standards along with our selfless, professional, and multi-lingual guides as well as partners and associates both domestic and international. Our offer also includes unique personalized experiences for individual and group guests, on Bhutan’s off the beaten paths. Our specializations are in the arts and culture, local festivals, rural agricultural and village experiences, eco-tours, honeymoon and family trips, birding, nature and wildlife, and high-end Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions (MICE).

When you choose GBT for your holidays in Bhutan, you have placed your full confidence and trust in the right people-centered company. Continuous learning (and unlearning) and unconditional improvement is our mantra. We assure you a 100 percent safe, reliable, pleasant, and a truly happy experience in The Land of the Thunder Dragon – and known to the world at large as The Last Shangri-La …

We heartily welcome you to join us and be part of our “GBT Experiences – A Truly Bhutan Experience!” in the eastern Himalayas …

Thank You! Kadin Chhe!
