Dear Travelers,

Kuzu Zangpola...!

Thank you very much for visiting our website...!

YAK is extraordinary, both as an animal of the formidable Himalayan ranges and as the symbol of Bhutan's leading travel and tour company. That's us: Yak Holidays International. Established in 2003, we are a travel company licensed by the Tourism Council of Bhutan, an autonomous body which oversees the tourism industry. Our company is also a member of the Association of Bhutanese Tour Operators.

YAK has a track record of excellence in the industry because we work hard, value our guests and their sensibilities, and assure hundred percent reliability at all times. We at YAK Holidays strictly adhere to the tenets of responsible tourism and ensure that there is adequate economic benefit for local people from your visit to our beautiful country. We arrange tours and treks in ways that enhance the well being of host communities. We make positive contributions to the conservation of natural and cultural heritage.

YAK does so by encouraging travelers to purchase and utilize materials available locally, thereby creating an outlet for local products instead of exacerbating demand for imported commodities. YAK Holidays is extraordinary, because we provide more enjoyable experiences for tourists through meaningful connections with local people and a greater understanding of local cultural, social and environmental issues. We minimize negative economic, environmental and social impacts.

What makes YAK distinct from other travel companies is that the owner and managers of the company are well experienced and know about the country extremely well. We are uniquely positioned to provide unrivalled services in the industry. We have experience, discipline and passion. And we have wisdom. All this goes on to enrich your visit to Bhutan, be it a cultural tour or a tough trek through the rugged terrains of the country.

At YAK, we do not design tour itineraries for you. We provide the details of places and things that could be of interest to you, so your itinerary is developed in consultation with you.

YAK specializes in tour packages that enable its guests to experience real Bhutan, those untouched, pure and untainted corners of the country where life is what it exactly was many years ago. YAK is extraordinary because it is owned by a social entrepreneur, a man whose ambition and passion for the business fuels YAK. Sithar Tamang relishes the satisfaction of his guests. For him, tourism is about uniting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel.

It may be fair to say that at YAK Holidays International, tourism is not just a business. It is a way of life.
And, yes, YAK walks the talk. See it for yourself!
