Home > Our Story

Bhutan Lhayul Tours and Travels was established by Mrs. Tshering Pem in 1999 when tourism in Bhutan was first privatized. Mrs. Tshering had worked in the Tourism Department in the Government since the 1980s and her in-depth knowledge about Bhutan and the tourism industry has been most beneficial in ensuring that she has been able to organize exemplary tours to Bhutan.


A family run travel business, the travel company is now managed by her son Mr. Jigme Tsering. Prior to managing the travel company, Jigme worked in various capacities in the Government and also worked for six years as Head of Business Development of the Department of Investment of  Druk Holdings and Investment, the Investment arm of the Royal Government of Bhutan. By profession Jigme is an engineer and also has a Masters in Environmental Studies from the University of Melbourne. Jigme enjoys travelling, seeing new places, meeting people and making new friends.

The management and dedicated team of Bhutan Lhayul Tours and Travels shares with our guests a passion for travel and adventure. We take pleasure in rediscovering Bhutan with every individual visitor who embarks on a journey with us and sharing with them Bhutan’s beauty and allure.

Visitors who travel with us have “come to Bhutan as guests and leave as friends.”
