For four and a half years’ Tshering was guided and trained by Mr. Norbu. As a young and enthusiastic birder, Tshering is now familiar with calls, behavior, distribution, and habitats of Bhutan birds. From the past many years Tshering has been guiding both private and group tours independently. he also started leading groups for our oversea counterpart.
