We offer our expertise in curating one-of-a-kind experiences which are authentic and transcendent; so as to spur you to step out of your comfort zone, discover the world we live in and enrich your sense of self.
Take your time to wander through our pages and get inspired by our stories and featured experiences to craft an unforgettable adventure.
We’ll then move on to a stage of collaboration with you, which will involve draft journey outlines and discussions to iron out the details. Once finalised, leave it to us to make it all happen.
Prep materials like packing lists and all the information you need about the destination and your journey will be sent your way. We will also arrange for a final in-person meeting (preferred) or phone briefing before you set off!
“We were the first outsiders to horse trek with two Mongolian Kazakh families migrating 100km across the Altai from their winter home to their summer home. We rode semi-wild horses and herded over 300 animals through gorgeous terrain over three days, which was nothing short of magical. On day two, we set up camp by a glacial lake located across the Chinese border in Khorimdik Valley. None of our crew or guides had ever been to this remote and magical location before, and we had only come to know of it through our nomadic family.”Read More

“My friends call me “Japay”, which means ‘rooster’ in Dzongkha because I was always up bright and early for school before everyone else. I suppose this eagerness and enthusiasm to start each day anew and make it count led to me becoming a guide. I’m often asked if I ever tire of showing travellers around the same places in the Kingdom but the truth is I don’t. Every time and every season has their own beauty, and this never fails to intrigue me.”Read More
“Twenty years ago, I was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. I decided to seek a taichi master who taught me the skills of taichi, qi gong, meditation, as well as Taoist rituals and behaviours. To my amazement, I was cured. I felt that the best way to show my gratitude was to dedicate my life to becoming a taichi master myself. I live here in the temple and to grow in my learning and knowledge, I read Taoism books everyday, including the Tao Te Ching, which is a key Taoist text. I also meditate four times a day. Sometimes visitors come to learn taichi, qi gong and meditation with me, and I’m happy to teach as many people as I can.”Read More
“We are the sum total of our experiences. Those experiences – be they positive or negative – make us the person we are, at any given point in our lives. And, like a flowing river, those same experiences, and those yet to come, continue to influence and reshape the person we are, and the person we become. None of us are the same as we were yesterday, nor will be tomorrow.”
