Bhutan is no doubt, a trekker's paradise. Located in the heart of the Himalayas the trekking routes range from the beautiful scenic nature paths to the more rigorous trails along the foothills of the Himalayan peaks for the more adventurous.
The high altitude and the low altitude treks are designed in such a way as to enable magnificent and in-depth views of the beautiful country. High altitude treks in Northern Bhutan are most challenging and rewarding. The highest peaks in the Himalayas form a border between Bhutan and the beginning of the "Roof of the World", Tibet. The higher reaches of these trails are accessible only at certain times of the year mainly between the end of the rainy season and the beginning of winter. These trails are clean, pristine and un-spoilt allowing for some of the most exhilarating treks ever.
The low altitude treks are comparatively easier leading through ever- green forests populated by various plant and animal species, which makes a scenic path to follow. These treks provide an opportunity to visit villages, farms and religious temples allowing a chance to appreciate the rich culture and the life of the Bhutanese people. These treks are accessible even in the winter and are a great delight to those trekkers who appreciate the finer sides of nature.
We provide you with knowledgeable and friendly guides, cooks, porters, assistants and pony handlers - in short, to ensure everything you need to enjoy the trek with only a camera in your hand as you take the shots of breathtaking sceneries and meet up with the indigenous people. Besides the treks mentioned in our website we can even design treks to meet your needs and desires. No trekker's life will be complete until one has trekked in the Himalayas of Bhutan.
