I am a simple minded businessman in the hospitality sector. I live with my family at Dokothang, which is our ancestral home. Being involved in the hospitality sector has enabled me to travel to different places and meet different kinds of people from all walks of life. Our family aims at providing the guest with traditional Bhutia hospitality.
