Bhutan is an excellent country for trekking, with beautiful mountain scenery, friendly villages and quiet trails. The best periods for trekking are October and November and between March and May (for trips over 4000m). Some lower altitude treks are open all year round. The best views of the snow capped Himalayas are most likely seen in the clear skies of the autumn while spring offers less reliable atmospheric clarity, but this may be compensated by valleys covered in rhododendron flowers and other blooms.
All trekking in Bhutan is camping based, normally with ponies used to carry your baggage and equipment instead of human porters. Trekking with you will be an experienced trekking guide, pony handlers, cook and camp crew (your camp crew and ponies may set off early each day so your camp is ready when you arrive).
We offer a wide range of treks in Bhutan, normally run on a private basis, ranging from just adding a day or two's walking into a cultural sightseeing themed tour, right up to high altitude routes taking over 2 weeks to complete. Between these extremes are several delightful treks of around a week's duration which can be combined with as much or as little sightseeing as you wish.
The same nightly rates apply for trekking in Bhutan as for any other tour, though discounts are available for treks over 10 days long.
