Trekking in Bhutan


Trekking in Bhutan is unlike anywhere else in the Himalayas, complemented by crystal clear air and views that sometimes defy description. Some treks are short and suitable for beginners while others can be long and challenging. Trekking facilities are constantly being improved. All treks in Bhutan use tented campsite accommodation and on many routes you will be the only trekkers in sight! Less experienced trekkers are recommended to consider either the Sinchula Trek, Chele La nature trek or the Druk Path trek which leads across the chain of mountains separating the two main western valleys of Paro & Thimphu passing crystal clear lakes and on clear days offering splendid views of the high Himalayas. Strenuous rated treks take in northern villages and pass yak herdsmen who spend most of the year tending to their herds. Some of these treks climb as high as 5,500 metres and should only be attempted by exceptionally fit & strong trekkers with alpine experience.
