Great Team
The Jhomolhari trek has been one of the most organized adventure I have been on and I am grateful to Third Rock for this. The Bhutanese guide Pema was fantastic and they anticipated all the needs of the group. The hiking was well paced and everything was wellmanaged. The whole Bhutanese team worked very cohesively together and it impressed us. Even the food was great.

Laya Trek for 17 Days
Everything was great. We had an exciting adventure wth Third Rock. Pema Sonam was our guide for this trek and he is a superb person. We also had 10 days of camping on the Laya Gasa trek. The food on trek was excellent. Our local guide who is very knowledgeable worked hard and kept us safe. Pema always wants his clients to have safe, enjoyable and memorable trips. My trek this year was my fourth one with Third Rock Adventures, and I have been fortunate that Pema actually led two of my trips. I highly recommend Pema for any adventure to the land of Bhutan.
