This time we got an email from IMG Bhutan leader, Mike Hamill. He said that everyone’s now in Thimpu, Bhutan’s capital city, and that all is well. Shopping and sightseeing are the order of the day prior to driving back to Paro. The only airport in country is in Paro and flights out are typically earlier in the morning so it’s just easier to spend the night there prior to heading for Bangkok.
They did it. 14 days on the trail and everyone came through without a scratch. Bhutan’s a special country, perhaps the most exotic travel destination in the world. If IMG goes back in 2010, don’t miss it. No one comes home unchanged.
