KENCHO was born in his ancestral home in the lush valley of Shengana that is nestled along the upper stretches of the Pho-chu river in Punakha. Shengana is fabled for producing the finest red rice in all of Bhutan. After his studies in Punakha and then college in neighboring Sikkim, he pursued the career of a trekking/touring guide at an early age. Kencho has risen through the ranks to prove himself and is the Director of our Paro unit heading some of the important businesses there.

An avid and accomplished fly fisherman Kencho has explored practically every lake and river in Bhutan that holds trout. His other hobby is Archery - the National game of Bhutan.
