Experience the Bhutan that only Few Travelers Get to See!
Considered one of the strongest contender and most difficult treks in the world, it takes us through one of the wildest and remotest regions of the Himalayan world. The Trek is strenuous, crossing eleven passes, three of which are well over 5,000 meters. This is the trip of lifetime for walkers, like you who dream of a major expedition in the style of the first foreign explorers to the Himalaya. We hike, beneath sky-piercing peaks, like Mt. Gangkar Puensum, the most scared mountain in Bhutan and through the heart of one of nature’s most spectacular mountainous landscapes, past turquoise lakes and remote highlands yak herder’s village. This trek ranks among the most challenging anywhere and takes you through remote areas of Bhutan that few travelers- and even few Bhutanese ever see.
Most of our trips take place during busy and festival season so it is difficult to secure reservations on Druk Air and Hotels in every places. We request you to book as far in advance as possible to confirm the reservation you choose and do not hesitate to contact us at the last minute if free time suddenly comes your way.
