Ugyen Wangdi

Owner and Guide

I founded this company LA and also a guide myself, I did my guiding course on culture, nature and trekking in Bhutan. Being very passionate about travel and adventure, my only desire was to guide my clients and share this little passion. I began to specialize in birdwatching and botany since Bhutan is one of the best place to see many endangered species. I hike and travel around the world and can relate with my clients for their needs.
