We offer 3 treks that are fun to do and easily incorporated into your itinerary if you would like to mix it up. Trekking in Bhutan provides an opportunity to experience our well-conserved natural environment. Forest trails meander through lush green meadows where yaks graze; full of rhododendron trees and if you are lucky – a chance to encounter elusive blue sheep, takins, and the golden langur. You will also pass through villages of yak herders and experience how they live by their nomadic lifestyle and culture. As mountains in Bhutan are considered to be the abode of deities – none of our high peaks have ever been climbed! All mountains are in their natural majestic state, revered by the people.
You will also witness stunning views of unclimbed snow-capped mountains. Whether you are looking for an easy 3 day trek or a challenging 21 day trek – we can arrange it all for you. All these treks go over prayer flag festooned scenic passes, which are as high as 5000 meters. Bhutan offers the most unique ways of trekking in the Himalayas.
