Trek Adventures are wondrous experience anywhere; in Bhutan it is unequalled. It offers you an opportunity that is already lost elsewhere. More than 65% of the land is protected by law. You walk in pure, pristine, wilderness — sometimes long and arduous. However, crystal clear air, lonely paths and views that defy descriptions complement them. Experience the kingdom’s lush terrain and pristine forests, meet with yak herders and spot its unique wildlife such as takins and golden langurs, cross its awesome passes and gaze at its stunning peaks. In Bhutan it is still very likely that you will find no other trekkers on your trail. Trekking in the late April and May offer extra benefits of hundreds of species of exotic flowers in bloom. All our trekking adventures can be combined with extensive sightseeing and cultural activities.
Learn more about Moderate Treks
Generally no more than 5 or 6 days in duration with a maximum altitude of 12,000 – 13,000ft, which is just below timberline. While no previous experience is required, you need to be in good physical shape and should enjoy hiking for most of the day and camping at night. It is for those who enjoy a weekend in the hills or mountains at home and are capable of roughing out a bit for 3-4days. Ideal for those with fewer days and looking for something a little more challenging, energetic and wanting to combine it with the kingdom’s cultural highlights.
Learn more about High Treks
Can be from 7 to 21 days in duration and reach altitudes of above 13,000ft. Previous experience is necessary. You are not only away from all forms of modernity, you are in true wilderness and villages are quite rare. There are no roads and even fewer trails. Starting with rhododendron forests at the foothills your trail will lead you through alpine meadows around snow peaked Himalayas opening into emerald green valleys with crystal clear lakes. Awesome passes crossed can be as high as 15,000 – 18,000 feet. While no technical climbing skills are required, you need to be in exceptionally good physical condition and should enjoy strenuous hiking and camping overnights for extended periods.

Bhutan Travel’sGlamping (or Luxury Camping) is the best way to love and achieve contentment with pristine nature with some tone of modern comfort. Imagine your own luxury tents with comfortable plush, pillow-top beds inside them. Then imagine that some elves set up these lovely tents for you in one of the most exquisite pine forests or at a fabulously scenic location. Then imagine waking every morning to a cool breeze and chirping birds outside your canvas as if you’re roughing it— but not really. You woke up to a hot tea in bed inside your tent. You freshened up in the toilet and the bathroom tent. You enjoy hot cooked breakfast – not over a campfire, but in the kitchen tent prepared by our gourmet cooks and served by our staff. Experience pristine nature where you enjoy breathtaking landscapes for the day before returning back to your luxury camp perhaps to enjoy your evenings in traditional hot stone baths.
