Who We Are

Bhutan Green Travel (BGT) was founded by two Bhutanese with a passion for the unique tourism industry in Bhutan. Ugyen Rinzin (managing proprietor), a United Kingdom finance and accounting graduate, has travelled extensively and lives in England and Bhutan. Following his graduation in the UK, he worked in accounting department and also in a 5-star luxury hotel in London, United Kingdom. While in Bhutan, he worked for the Department of Budget and Accounts, Ministry of Finance, Royal Government of Bhutan for more than a decade. During that term he had an opportunity to handle budgeting affairs of the Tourism Council of Bhutan (erstwhile Tourism Authority of Bhutan including Ministry of Trade and Industry). After all these years, he caught the travel bug and has joined the Bhutan Green Travel as a managing partner to dedicate his multi-skills in private tourism.

Chekey Gyeltshen (tour leader), a graduate in economics and geography from Sherubtse College, Kanglung is passionately interested in sustainable tourism and meeting people from all over the world. Also, he is an outgoing and articulate tour operator with a wealth of knowledge about Bhutan’s history, geography and languages.

BGT derived its name from the ‘Green’ concept because Bhutan is covered with more than 72% of the land by forest, endowed with a rich biological diversity, where many of the rare species of animals, birds, medicinal plants, flowers, etc. exists and is ranked as one of the top ten hotspots in the world. Furthermore, the Royal Government of Bhutan has an excellent environmental policy with a commitment of adopting the ‘middle path’ approach to sustainable development in order to achieve the maximum economic development without compromising the country’s socio-cultural and biological diversity. “This noble initiative is further evidenced by a statement of His Majesty the Fourth King Jigme Singye Wangchuck’s policy towards environment: Throughout the centuries, the Bhutanese have treasured their environment and have looked upon it as the source of all life. This traditional reverence for nature has delivered us into twenty-first century with our environment still richly intact. We wish to continue living in harmony with nature and to pass on this rich heritage to future generations.” This is why the “Land of the Peaceful Bhutan” is also a trekker’s paradise and an environmentalist’s dream.
