Kuzoo Zangpo La !
Thank you for visiting Legpai Bhutan Tours website.
Although the world has many breathtakingly beautiful places, but Bhutan is a unique experience. The country offers fresher air, mountains covered with varied species of green and colorful vegetation, birds and animals, and memorable cultural festivals and hospitable people.
Having worked in the travel industry as a ticketing agent “air travel services” for the last 15 years, the market competition made it mandatory for value addition to the existing ticketing business. Therefore, in April 2014, I started a tour company, “Legpai Tours & Treks”. The meaning of Legpai is beautiful. Therefore, our mission is to offer unique and personalized experience to the client’s world over.
In 1995, as a young boy I came to Thimphu, from a small village called Pata Bari, Sarpang Dzongkhag (District) in Southern Bhutan. My hometown falls under sub-tropical ecological zone ranging from 150 – 200m altitude where you get to see Gulmohar tree in full bloom – world’s most colorful tree, during winter months (November to February) and many bird species that migrate from sub-temperate zones like Thimphu (2,350m / 7,710ft) and Bumthang (2,700m / 8,860ft.).
Group tours are not easy to plan, me and my dedicated team will assist you in planning and organizing your tours of any of our itineraries or write or speak to us to plan an individualized itinerary or special interest tour with a focus on, for example, Botanical, Bird watching, Study tours for education institutions, R&R, Retreats for organizations, Farm stay, and Bhutan, and Kalimpon (neighboring Indian hill station) tour package etc.
We develop our nature-based tours under the guidance of Ms. Rebecca Pradhan. In addition, she is also the source of pictures (landscape, plants, trees, flowers, golden langur & birds) that we have used in this website, we are highly indebted to her .
From 1985 to 1999, she worked as the Head of the Herbarium and Forestry Research Library, Department of Forestry, Royal Government of Bhutan. Since 2000, she has been working with Royal Society for Protection of Nature (RSPN), Bhutan, as a Senior Ecologist. She has written Wild Rhododendrons of Bhutan, Threatened Birds in Bhutan, Conifer of Bhutan, Basic Gardening, and Ecology of White-bellied Heron. Her most recent endeavour is a documentary on the ecology of the white-bellied heron.”
We pride ourselves in providing you with a comfortable tour and travelling experience in our country that best suits your schedule and interests.
