We visited Bhutan the first time in 1999 under the auspices of the International Crane Foundation and the Royal Society for the Protection of Nature. We liked Bhutan so much that we returned in 2000 and will visit again in 2003. We have inspired many other friends and family to travel there as well with our host Hishey Tshering and Bhutan Heritage Travels. This is due to Hishey and his superb organization who always will go the extra mile to make guests comfortable, and who made it possible for us to come as tourists, but leave as friends.
