Bhutan trekking and walking holidays

Trekking in Bhutan is unique, unlike anywhere else in the Himalayas. The walks are long and arduous but crystal air, lonely paths and views that defy description compliment them. The trails lead you through alpine meadows rhododendron forests around the foothills of the snow peaked Himalayas, emerald green valleys and crystal clear lakes. One also gets the opportunity to see a wide variety of flora and fauna. The Bhutan treks vary from short 3 day walks over relative low altitudes to 3 week long treks which takes one through some of the highest passes in the kingdom of Bhutan. The Bumthang trek is a cultural trek that takes you through villages and heritage sites in the valley of Bumthang.

The lovely Bumthang valley is the religious heartland of the nation and home to some of its oldest Buddhist temples and monasteries. Bumthang Cultrual Trek is through Choekhor and Tang valley, passing and visiting Bumthang's remote villages, ancient temples and even a manor of Ugencholing. This trek is so named because, the opportunities to visit villages and temples are greater than on most other treks in Bhutan. Though it is relatively easy and a short trek, there is one day of a long climb and descend (about 500m) to Phephe La (3360). However, there is no significant altitude gain as with other treks and your night halts are all below 3100 mtr (10,100ft).

This three day Bumthang valley cultural trek passes through several villages on its meandering route through Bumthang countryside, and provides an exceptional opportunity for contact with Bhutanese rural life.

Season for Bumthang valley trek in Bhuta: The trek is recommended from March to May and then again from September to November.

The trekking or tour of Bhutan can be combined with Nepal trek, tour to Darjeeling and Sikkim or even cultural journey to India like Taj Mahal Agra, Jaipur  etc. Similarly Bhutan tour can combined with Tibet ( Lhasa ) or Buddhist circuit tour like Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Sarnath and Kushinagar etc. Which are the birth place, enlighten place, first teaching given place and Pari - Nirvana place of Buddha. Kindly ask us for details.
