“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain

After completing my under-grad studies, I started exploring my country. I discovered my land of stunning nature and pure smiles from the heart of our friendly people. The mountains of Bhutan have now become the center of my life. I feel extremely fortunate to be part of Bhutan’s sustainable tourism industry. During my free time, I like to hike, work out & explore local cafes.
I love meeting new people, learning new things, and looking beyond what’s right in front of me. After my under-grad studies, I joined Etho Metho in hopes of expanding my knowledge and learning about my great country. I have the passion for football and the outdoors.

Senior Travel Consultant
I joined Etho Metho in May 2010. Specialized in making arrangements for tours, preparing detailed itineraries for travelers and ensuring pleasant travel experiences. In addition, photography is my passion and the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday. Bhutan provides a stunning array of photographic opportunities- mountainous landscapes, ancient temples and monasteries, lively, colorful festivals, a timeless Buddhist culture and fascinating people.
Having been raised and tutored by a man whose very being is the embodiment of a “Bhutanese”, I joined this industry so that I could follow in the footsteps of my father. On my journey I experienced the diverse culture of our country, met many people, befriended many animals (Like my little buddy in the picture J) and discovered hidden paradises. Slowly, I fell more in love with my beautiful country and now I am on a new journey to find my own unique way of being a “Bhutanese”.
