Trekking in Bhutan

Trekking in Bhutan is a unique experience unlike many of the more crowed treks offered in Asia. The variety of treks range from a simple three-day trek from the district of Thimphu to Paro(and vice- versa) to the 25- day 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 if 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 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 wildflowers, butterflies,and grazing animals. Trekkers often get to spot blue sheep , takin and a variety of birdlife including the wild pheasants. Bhutan’s treks are also famous for the majestic views of the Himalayan peajs that provide sense of awe and wonder and a point of contemplation for trekkers along the way.

One of them is the Jhomolhari trek where trekkers go to the base camp for Mt.Jhomolhari ,Bhutan’s most deeply venerated peak on the border of Bhutan and the Tibet region of china. Trekkers often come back with a sense of the majesty of high altitudes,where life ticks to a different time . The Bumthang cultural trek is a trek that takes you through villages and heritage sites in the valley.
