Trekking in bhutan

Perhaps the way of life in Bhutan is what makes Bhutanese exceptional trekkers. Day hikes, easy walks, and trekking in the upper Himalayan region of Bhutan is the best way to experience Bhutan. While options are many, one may choose from the huge selection of treks offered on our Bhutan Trekking Packages page. Trekking in Bhutan allows one a license to experience Bhutan at its grassroots level in the backdrop of majestic Himalayan ranges,  rich flora and fauna featuring endangered plants and animals, pristine breathtaking view of the surrounding vista, Himalayan  glacier lakes, nomadic tribes living in the upper Himalayan region, camping amidst complete tranquility away from civilization and many more. The trek routes followed today, are what used to be the normal routes, used by villagers to cross over one valley to another, many years back. Mountains are revered in Bhutan, owing to which the mountains in Bhutan still remain unclimbed, with Gangkher Phuensum being the highest unclimbed peak in the world. It is imperative that one is of sound heath condition to trek in Bhutan. Allow oneself a good day or two to acclimatize, while guides and potter are trained to look for altitude sickness, its best to take precaution ahead, rest assured nothing can beat the experience of trekking in Bhutan’s pristine well preserved natural biodiversity. Below we have provided more details on Bhutan Treks.
