Bhutan treks are unrivaled by many of the more treks offered in Asia – it is quite challenging and it is for real adventure seekers. The hill side tends to be almost vertical, the climate is windier, damper and colder, and the daily altitude gain is more than in any other Himalayan nation.
Hidden in the folds of the Himalayas, Bhutan is a beautiful country, comprising rolling hills, dense forests, and deep valleys steeped in Buddhist tradition and culture. With the highest unclimbed mountain massif in the world – Gangkar Punsum (7,541 m) and several other climbed and unclimbed peaks of more than 7,000 m high, its offers beautiful but overwhelming views of the Himalayas.
To enjoy the beautiful landscape, its flora and fauna, there is no better way than trekking in Bhutan. Bhutanese have wondered all over their country on foot for centuries carving out treks through valleys and passes. Each Bhutan trek has its own special features.
Bhutan treks do not require any special skill. The trails are generally in good condition. Fit and experienced walkers would have no difficulty navigating them, although natural obstacles such as snowfall or landslides could require a change of plans. For the less experience trekkers, there are several trails like DrukPath trek, Bumthang culture trek, Samtengang trek, Merak and Sakteng community trek, and Nabjikorphu community trek, and many more.
Bhutan trekking started in 1978. Around 1000 tourists a year visit Bhutan for trekking, and most of them opt for Jomolhari Yaksa trek and Jomolhari Round trek, easy accessible from the north of Paro.
However, the Bhutan trek comprises long days with several ascents and descents each day. The valleys are steeper here than in other Himalayan destinations.
