Bhutan Trek

Trekking and Adventure

Trekking in Bhutan is a unique experience. The variety of treks range from a simple 3 days trek from the district of Thimphu to Paro (and vice versa) to the 25 days legendary Snowman’s Trek that takes veteran trekkers through some of the most exquisite spots in the country. The Snowman Trek is also labeled the world’s toughest trek as it goes over 12 mountain passes, all of them over 4,500m.

Almost all the treks offer a combination of natural discovery and an insight into the country’s delicate and unique daily life. Many of the trails take walkers past remote and ancient monasteries, through deep forests, and close to villages. The trails pass grasslands and pastures for livestock, and meadows of wild flowers, butterflies, and grazing animals. Trekkers often get to spot blue sheep, takin and a variety of bird life including wild pheasants. Bhutan’s treks are also famous for the majestic views of the Himalayan peaks that provide a sense of awe and wonder and a point of contemplation for trekkers along the way.
