Trekking in Bhutan

The majesty of the snow-laden Himalayan mountains, rising abruptly from the plains of the Indian subcontinent is a sight beyond compare. With sacred high-altitude peaks soaring above ancient and dense forests, the Bhutanese Himalayas remain one of the most unexplored region of the Himalayas.
Most of the Trekking routes in Bhutan are in the central and northern regions, where trekkers start from altitudes of around 2,000 meters and can cross passes as high as 6,000 meters.
All treks in Bhutan are a paradise for lovers of flora, fauna and photography. Bhutan has close to 700 species of birds. Of these, 24 are registered as endangered species. There are 46 species of Rhododendron with at least 4 found only in Bhutan. The Snow Leopard, Blue Sheep, Golden Langur and Takin are some of the rare animals that can be found in Bhutan. A trek in Bhutan takes you through dense mixed forests of oak, wild peach, bamboo, rhododendron, magnolia, azalea, blue pine, chir pine, cypress and fir
Due to the very low population density in Bhutan where treks often take us far from any habitation, all our treks are organized camping expeditions. This means that following us will be a whole array of ponies or yaks that will carry our personal load as well as camping and cooking equipment. On a trek you will only be required to carry your own day-pack and a water bottle.
All the treks in Bhutan follow traditional routes, well-trodden by men and ponies before the days of the road. Daily distances vary from trek to trek but the longer, high-altitude treks usually cover a distance of 10-17km per day. The time spent trekking ranges from 3 to 8 hours but averages 5 to 6 hours per day. We usually set off early in the morning and finish around three or four in the afternoon.
