Kelly and his team consisting of some of the most experienced experts in the Bhutanese hospitality and travel business personally direct Terton Travel Bhutan.

Visiting Bhutan has, for most outsiders, been a dream; and since Bhutan opened its doors in 1971, many foreigners aspired to make this ‘once in a lifetime’ journey to the ‘last Shangrila’. Today, discerning travellers increasingly choose Bhutan as a holiday destination because it is still natural in its beauty. It offers a true travel experience balancing modern development with conscious Buddhist values.
