A trek in Bhutan is one of the most exhilarating and unforgettable ways to experience the heart and soul of the Dragon Kingdom.
One of the best ways to experience the raw beauty of Bhutan is to incorporate a trek into your itinerary. With much of the kingdom covered in ancient forests and alpine meadows, a trek will not only bring you closer to nature but provide you with the opportunity to meet rural people. Whilst you will need to be physically fit and used to long walks, our trekking itineraries have been designed to travel at a gentle pace. Altitude sickness can be a concern over 3,000m so it is important to acclimatise before your trek and ascend slowly. You will be accompanied by a local trekking guide, cook, camp hand and horsemen who look after the yaks and ponies that transport your luggage and camping gear. The crew take care of all the camp chores and will provide you with simple but wholesome food along the way.
Trekking is best from March to April and from September to November (outside of the monsoonal summer season). These months offer the clearest views of the mountains.
