In Bhutan, where human settlements are far and few between, the distance between urbanity and wilderness is blurred. Most often, within a one-mile radius, there are more trees than people. So they say the best way to see Bhutan is on foot, lugging tents and food on yaks and horses.
Typically, you begin a trek in Bhutan in scented pine trees on the lower slopes before entering brooding oak forests where gnarled branches drip in velvety green moss. Above you cypress, spruce, juniper and birch scamper up the mountainside clinging improbably to sheer ridges where their feathery branches catch the sun and line the mountains with tinsel. That’s what you don’t get in the rest of the Himalayas, ancient forests.
Mornings, you may unzip your tent to discover one of those crisp days that gets your senses jangling. Unsure of where to look first, your eyes ricochet from a snowy peak to a dewy pine forest to an al fresco breakfast table bearing a combination of porridge, bread and jam. Just meters away a river roars relentlessly, a deafening rush that means you have to bellow across the table for someone to pass the sugar.
Beyond the trees, you climb ever higher through a landscape that looks like the highlands of Scotland – bleak and beautiful, with teeth-clenching glacial wind that hurtles straight through you, laughing in the face of Gore-Tex. Trumpet gentian and edelweiss huddle close together as you tramp past, while hardy gorse bushes stand their ground in defiance.
A trek in Bhutan may or may not affect your body. But it will affect your spirit.
You have the option of selecting your own trek, with regards to days of trek that you prefer. The shortest trek would be of three or four days (like the Druk Path Trek), or a week, but if you want to get immersed into the realms of trekking in Bhutan, you got the option of trekking for more than 25 Days(Snow Man Trek-Toughest Trek In the World).
While on trek, we would provide you the best of services, ranging from a packhorse to carry your personal gear, tents and food or yaks at higher elevations. You would be provided with two-person tent, with a foam to replace your mattress. Far away from the standard hotels, but you would be provided with a certified cook who would give you the pleasure or even more, then you would get in a hotel or restaurant.
Hikes is Bhutan usually means a day hike at the most to some temples or monasteries, or just birding and nature walks through the wilderness or remote villages
