Trekking in Bhutan

Trekking in Bhutan is entirely different from Pakistan, India and Nepal. Bhutan has not been properly surveyed, altitudes have not been correctly determined and there are no detailed maps.  Valleys are narrow and few habitations or buildings are seen.  Bhutan is a little piece of heaven on earth - a virtually untouched world where spirituality is still the way of life, where time moves at a much slower and peaceful rhythm, and nature is bestowed the respect it deserves. Its pastoral valleys are dominated by 16th-century monasteries presided over by red-robed lamas, and nomadic yak herders roam the high mountain valleys.

Monsoon season is long-mid-June to September, and clouds trapped in the narrow valleys are slow to disperse.  Trails are generally wet and really good boots are needed to keep feet dry.  Carrying several pairs of socks becomes a necessity.  As the country is thinly populated, mules and yaks are the only way to transport loads.  Village folk are always busy, tending to crops, looking after domestic animals, taking care of daily needs, so they have no time to spare.  Yaks and mules must be changed in crossing from one district to another.

If pack animals arrive late (a common occurrence) patience and a different philosophy of looking at delays will help to make the trip more enjoyable. Although the Himalayas have always held a long-standing attraction to the western world it is a recent development here. Bhutan is one of the most exclusive and rare destinations for any tourist. The unique culture, architecture, lofty snowcapped peaks, fortress like dzongs, Lamaist Buddhist traditions and its friendly people leave an everlasting impression on the visitor. Like all tours to Bhutan, trekking in Bhutan can only be organized through a registered agency in Bhutan.

Trekking Season - The best periods for trekking in Bhutan are October-November and March-May for all high altitude treks going over 4000 meters. Some of the shorter treks (Druk Path trek, Bumthang Cultural trek, Gangtey Nature trek) can be undertaken anytime from October to May through the winter. In the autumn clear warm days prevail affording the best mountain views. In the spring mixed weather pattern prevail with clear spells followed by occasional thunder showers and light rain. Spring is best for flowering rhododendrons (which Bhutan is famous for) along with magnolias and other flowering plants.

This short 5-day Druk Path trek goes from Paro valley to Thimphu (or vice versa), crossing a chain of mountains that separates the two valleys. Although there are v ery few villages to see, there are wonderful lakes teeming with fish at 4000 meters (13,000 feet) and spectacular rhododendron forests that bloom in May. In clear weather there are magnificent views of the high Himalayan peaks. The Druk Path trek can be done in all seasons, but the best times are from October to November and March to May. Bhutan's best short trek.

|Trek -II|  Gangtey Trek

This is another short trek, which can be reduced more and is recommended in spring, when rhododendron and magnolia are in full bloom. A moderate trek reaching only at an elevation of 3440 meters /11,290 ft., it is a paradise for nature lovers. Beginning from the glacial valley of Phobjikha at an elevation of 3000 meters /9840 ft, winter home for the rare black-necked cranes. You will traverse through the village of Gogona, Khotokha and finally ending the trek at Wangdue Valley at an elevation of 1350 meters / 4430 ft. The program also offers sightseeing in the valleys of Wangdue, Punakha, Paro, Thimphu and a short hike to Chimi Lhakhang temple, dedicated to Drukpa Kuenley Popularly known as the "Divine madman".

|Trek -III|  Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek

This is a short trek, near Thimphu, to a large numbers of lovely high altitude lakes. The trek is not difficult and most trekking days is short but there are some long steep climbs. Dagala mountain range divides two prominent valleys of Thimphu and Wangdue, and the highest pass you will cross is 4500 meters / 14760ft. It is a paradise for people who love fishing, the lakes are filled with trout. Alpine flowers, rhododendron, different species of pheasants, musk deer are found in abundance.

|Trek -IV|  Bumthang Cultural Trek
