Trekking Adventures

mountainTrekking in Bhutan is unlike anywhere else in the world. Walking along the rolling Himalaya can be hard work at times. It’s rarely flat – more a succession of ascents and descents, often steep. But it’s certainly worth it for the crystal-clear air, little-frequented paths, flora and fauna, and incomparable views. You will see snow-peaked mountains, alpine meadows, rhododendron forests, crystal mountain lakes, traditional farmhouses and villages.

All trekking in Bhutan is being arranged as camping trips as there are no hotels or lodges along the trails. Your trekking camp is at designated place where there is ample water suppy to cook your meals and meadows to feed your ponnies. The company trekking crew treks with you to set up camps, carry your pack lunches, prepare tea and serve meals at the campsites.  You will trek with your back-pack with only water bottle, batteries, cameras, jackets and your basics daily stuff such as medicines, toiletries and own supplies of chocolate bars, insect repellents and treatment tablets. Your heavier stuff such as tents, personal gear, kitchen and food supplies are carried by horses or yaks at higher altitudes. We do not rely on porters.

Most of the treks are in the region of 3000m (9000ft) to 5000m (16,400ft), varying from short four-day hikes over relatively low altitudes to three-week long treks taking you over some of the highest passes in Bhutan. Depending on altitude a trekking day is usually about 6 to 7 hours in length (including stops).

The staging of our treks is designed to ensure that you don’t climb too high too fast, to minimise the risk of altitude sickness. Walking at altitude should always be approached with caution, however. Be aware of how your body is reacting and make sure you keep your guide informed of any concerns. Our treks give details of altitude, distance and average walking time each day – there can be a huge variation between a walker with a slow measured pace who takes the hills gently and a fitness fanatic who aims to get to camp by lunchtime! But either way we will make sure you have someone to walk with you to keep you on the right trail.

On all treks, we will provide one or more experienced guides, professional cooks, cook’s assistants or helpers (depending on the size of the group) and horses or yaks (for transporting luggage). You won’t need to carry more than a day-pack. Our trained staff will take every precaution to ensure your safety and comfort while in our care and you should listen carefully to their advice while on trek.
