Trek Bhutan Trek Bhutan

The mountains of Bhutan offer some of the finest trekking in the Himalaya. The lower hills are cloaked in semi-tropical and alpine forest containing a wealth of plants and flowers, while above the treeline the country is wild and rugged with spectacular mountain views.

The 5-day Druk Path trek, which runs between the main towns of Paro and Thimphu, is a Himalayan classic. Reaching a maximum altitude of 4,300 metres, it traces a route through pine and rhododendron forest, along mountain ridges and past high alpine lakes to isolated hilltop monasteries, from where there are stunning views of Bhutan’s highest peaks. You will have an English speaking guide looking after you, supported by cooks, camp staff and pack animals to carry all the gear, and safari style walk-in tents to sleep in that come with camp beds, mattresses, pillows, bedside tables, floor rugs, solar powered lamps and even hot water bottles!

You have a day to acclimatise before the trek in the Paro Valley - this is best spent hiking up to the legendary Tiger’s Nest, a seemingly impregnable fortress monastery clinging to sheer granite cliffs high above the valley floor - and also a day to explore the kingdom’s charming capital of Thimphu at its conclusion.
