A visit to Bhutan promises a special and unique experience. Our role is to ensure that our guests can witness the country's many fascinations and charms without being distracted by unnecessary hitches or avoidable discomforts. You can be confident that with Yangphel you receive the highest quality service in the industry. We aim at excellence in each aspect of your trip, in both the fundamentals and the small details. These various elements then come together to create a superior overall package.
Our personnel are some of the most highly qualified and experienced in the industry. We reward better than our competitors. Each member has had a broad-based training, which allows the performance of multiple roles and has improved all round understanding. A depth of experience is especially important in developing an open-minded attitude towards many different nationalities and when handling difficult situations and emergencies.
Our know-how and infrastructure, together with a network of long-standing relationships within the industry, help us ensure that each trip is implemented to the best achievable standards. A high staff to client ratio improves overall service and provides invaluable flexibility in case of emergencies. From the time of your departure to your return our management will be there as backup, to follow up any queries and offer any necessary assistance.
In many parts of the country food and accommodation arrangements are relatively basic. We aim to provide our clients with the best in each location. This is assessed through a combination of the Department of Tourism's hotel, lodge and guesthouse grading and our own experience. Individual hotel details are available on request.
In the most popular destinations at peak season there almost always room shortages. Our network of excellent working relationships generally enables us to get our clients bookings at the more comfortable hotels. To better guarantee this, we are also in the process of expanding our own accommodation infrastructure.
Our campsites are the best in the industry. The equipment we now use has been proven to be the most suited to particular Bhutanese conditions. For high-altitude treks we favor Marmot tents and accessories. For more gentle tour camping we have had tents custom-made to provide greater comfort and space.
Although practicality dictates that food during treks is fairly simple, it should be as appetizing as possible. Our cooks have recently undergone extra training, and the improvement in food quality and variety has been well received by our clients.
