A trek in Bhutan must be the ultimate goal of the Himalayan connoisseur. Trekking here is highly exclusive, with only a handful of walkers joining the nomadic yak herders and local villagers on the trails. Our route takes us from the idyllic Paro Valley past abandoned dzongs (forts) to higher pastures overshadowed by the magnificent peaks of Chomolhari and Jichudrake. Next is a traverse close to the Tibetan border over high passes to the little-visited village of Laya, whose inhabitants have a unique dress and language. We then head south to the capital, Thimpu, where there will be time to visit the memorial stupa and the magnificent Tashicho Dzong, the seat of government. Two of the departures are scheduled to witness the famous Paro or Thimpu festival , whilst the October departure promises fewer tourists at that time of year.

The given itinerary is a sample, intended to give you a  general idea of the likely trip schedule. Numerous factors such as weather, road conditions, the physical ability of the participants etc may dictate itenirary changes either before departure or while on the trail. we reserve the right to change this schedule in the interest of the trip participant’s safety, comfort and general well being.

Recommendations: The Trek is relatively difficult requiring good physical fitness. Few weeks training is advised and a physical fitness check-up is must.
