Trekking

Very few of the peaks have ever been climbed, and therefore they lie practically undiscovered, some of them even without names. The Himalayan chain starts at Jomolhari (7314 m) in the west and ends at Kulha Gangri which lies approximately in the middle of the northern border. The lower chain of the mountains stretch eastward to the Indian province of Arunachal Pradesh. Nestled in the eastern end of the grand Himalayas, trekking in Bhutan takes you into the heart of the most scenic and untouched natural world with the highest unclimbed peaks.

Trekking in the Himalayas is altogether an experience that simply cannot be expressed in words. Trekking provides the nature admirer such an opportunity, to feel the power and unparalleled beauty and sanctity of the majestic Himalayas. You will enjoy stunning views of snowcapped peaks, dense forested hillsides and river valleys, and the sounds of birds and gushing streams.

Furthermore, we take care of our trekkers and make sure that their journey into the mountains is a memorable one. We provide a crew of specialized staff to assist you along the way. The crew will include at least one cook, one trained guide, a horseman and horses or yaks, who will guide you, prepare the meals, and look after all the camping arrangements. All the provisions and luggage are carried by the horses or yaks and porters. However, if you are planning to go trekking in Bhutan you should be reasonably fit and bring along some trekking gear such as the following:

  • A headlamp torch and a normal torch (including spare batteries.);
  • Binoculars and Camera;
  • Small day pack;
  • Water bottle;
  • Sunscreen, insect repellant, sun hat and sun glasses;
  • Towel;
  • Small medical kit that includes aspirin, motion sickness tablets,
    (The guide carries a larger Medical kit but please bring own travel medications)
  • Quality footwear that has been previously worn in, warm clothing & wet weather gear.
  • Antiseptic hand gel for disinfecting hands without water.
