    This is a really interesting article! I’m definitely becoming more and more convinced I need to add Bhutan to my destination list…

      @Emma: Let me know if you have any questions in your planning process. I’ve seriously never been anywhere else like it!

    Hi Jessie, I came across your site and love the article. Very interesting and lots of great information. I have been in contact with Kinley Wangchuk and he is very friendly and nice. I am planning to visit Bhutan in October and will go on the Jomolhari trek. I’m nervous as I have never done a trek this long before. Do you have any tips and suggestions for surviving the trek? Thank you!

      @Alice: I actually haven’t done that particular trek. Let me know how it goes though. If you’d like to do a guest post after your experience would love to have it! 🙂
