  1. Tshering Denkar

Denkars Getaway to Chimmi Lhakhang

Tshering Denkar, well known to most as “Denkars Getaway,” is an inspiration and a role model to all Bhutanese women. Her love and passion for traveling and exploring have led her to many places in and around the Kingdom, manifesting the Bhutanese lifestyles and beauty. She is one of the first-ever solo travel bloggers and vloggers in Bhutan, where she shares personal experiences from her exciting adventures. 

In one of her blogs, ‘The power of “Blogging” in Bhutan’, Denkar wrote, “Travel blogging needs more storytelling because responsible and good writing transforms opinion. Because emotion and understanding and empathy are all things that the world needs more of, and we — as wanderers who write online with the power to reach millions — have a responsibility to leverage them and tell the stories that matter AND MAKE THE WORLD WE LIVE IN A BETTER PLACE!”. 

So her conception of putting her experience and passion into words with the platform that she has is to become a storyteller where her audience can understand each other and bring them together, where they could think, change and learn to be better.

The way Denkar has been an influencer in constantly providing great content through her blogs has inspired many fresh Bhutan bloggers to follow in her footsteps.
