Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, is no ordinary place. It is a Himalayan kingdom replete with myths and legends, where the best of traditional culture thrives and the latest global developments are enthusiastically embraced.
Bhutan is rich in its culture as well as in its biodiversity. Nearly three quarters of the total area is covered by forests. The lush valleys, the radiant snow capped peaks, the beautiful rural landscapes and the rich Himalayan flora and fauna of Bhutan will leave you in awe. Bhutan still maintains its culture and traditions in the same way it did centuries ago. The scope for trekking in Bhutan is immense from short walks to arduous treks. Trekking gives an opportunity to see the beautiful Kingdom of Bhutan at its most magnificent form. Most trek routes follow the old trading route between different valleys. From the towering snow peaks of the inner Himalayas to the verdant forests which cloak the hills above its peaceful valleys, the trails are clean, unspoiled, and the wilderness still pristine in its beauty. Some of the itineraries that are listed below offer enchanting vistas of the Himalayas. All our programs are well planned and accompanied by efficient, trained team who take care of all the necessities.
