Trekking in Bhutan amongst the lofty ridges of the Himalayas, breathtaking views abound as we witness a rich Buddhist culture, friendly people, and few other visitors.
The Kingdom of Bhutan is ancient Asia's last enclave, hidden in the mighty Himalayas. It is a land that will captivate your senses and one where strangers are treated as friends. Our 13-day adventure along Bhutan's premier trekking route leads us into a breathtaking Himalayan valley, to the base of Bhutan's most sacred mountain, Chomolhari (23,997'). We follow the path of nomadic yak herders, hiking through wild rhododendron forests, and alpine meadows carpeted with wildflowers, over trout-filled streams, and into pure Himalayan grandeur. We catch a glimpse of nomadic life as we see locals making butter and cooking over open fires. In the days before and after our trek, our itinerary allows us to acclimate while visiting the cultural centers of Paro and Thimphu, with their distinctive architecture, welcoming people, and fascinating sites
