Treks in Bhutan are not easy to come by. They require a lot of prior planning and the logistics are daunting. But hiring an authorised tour operator means that you can simply show up and the rest is taken care of!
Amongst the better known treks in Bhutan is the Druk Path Trek which takes you from the city of Paro to the city of Thimphu. A trek that lasts 5 days meanders through some of the most outstanding and picturesque locales you will have seen.At one point of the trek you climb up to 4100 metres!
You may see snow, get caught in snowfall or rain or both, camp next to pristine lakes and eat authentic Bhutanese food cooked by the cook accompanying your trip along with the horseman, the assistant and the trek guide.
Trekking in Bhutan is like travelling with a community – there is never a dull moment, the booze is brought out at sun down and there may even be singing and dancing!
You can get a ‘feel’ of the terrain in this time lapse video that we shot at Jigmelang-Tsho.
