What makes Bhutan Norter an Industry Leader?
Bhutan Norter Adventures is a tour and trekking company based in Bhutan’s capital, Thimphu. Literally, the name “Nor” mean “wealth” and “Ter” means “Hidden Treasure”. The idea is to provide our clientele the best that the Kingdom has to offer.
The company was established to provide a glimpse of this Himalayan Kingdom – known as the Land of Happiness – to the outsiders who are increasingly curious about its ancient cultural mores, traditions, spectacular environment and a lifestyle that balances spirituality with material progress.
Apart from the Kingdom’s intrinsic attractions, Bhutan Norter believes that the travelers to Bhutan must receive what they seek: a memorable trip handled with professionalism and experience garnered over many years.
Of the numerous travel companies in the Kingdom, Bhutan Norter has distinguished itself in the following ways:
- Our trips are culturally and ecologically sensitive. Each tour we conduct goes beyond the superficial; apart from what is tangible and visible, we try to bring out the complete essence of what makes Bhutan unique. In so doing, we also ensure that its cultural identity is not compromised and that Bhutan’s status as an environment “hotspot” stays intact;
- We provide services with a difference. Every trip goes beyond the mechanical and the mundane. Our guides and team leaders try to bond with their guests to cultivate a warm and understanding camaraderie which in turn helps foster a wonderful and lasting experience;
- Before and after tours, it is our company’s policy to take feedbacks with which we are able to improve ourselves on a daily basis. The pre-tour consultations with the guests are a prerequisite to fine-tune the nitty-gritty of actual tours, and incorporate the desires and expectations of our guests. This approach brings about an ideal partnership in the planning and execution of the tours;
- We believe in innovating on a daily basis. Each time, an opportunity for a new product arises, we craft an itinerary and inform our agents worldwide of the wonderful new opportunity.
