The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Trekking & Walking, Adventure & Off-the-beaten track

This amazing itinerary combines two incredible trekking experiences; the Druk Path Trek and the Bumdra High Camp. Instead of taking the main road between the two towns, you can get off-the-beaten track and into the mountains behind it, walking along a trail that has been used for centuries. This is a far-flung corner of Bhutan, little visited by tourists. Stop in remote monasteries, look out over snow-capped mountains and camp in breathtaking locations. You’ll be walking through local villages and farmland, stopping to have tea with the locals and seeing what Bhutan is truly about. We will provide you with a private guide and porters and set up a private camp each night complete with proper camp-beds, bedding, toilet tent and shower tent.

Anne Borlon & Mark Edmonds, Bhutan March 2018

We wanted to spend a few minutes of our time to write and email to you and your extended team in the UK and Bhutan. We have tremendously enjoyed our 8 nights here and the highlight “wow” hotel was the very kind upgrade you gave us to the Gangtey lodge. This was an amazing experience!!!
The team you have in situe with Rishi, Legden and Doedgey are extremely efficient and professional. The background work for our trip and the special surprises were very well timed and executed. And indeed add the extra difference to our wonderful visit.
A few words on Legden, our guide, as we not only found him to be polite, punctual and professional but instilled with a national pride and courtesy that we do not find very often in the modern world. 10 out of 10!
We close this short email with a final word of gratitude for our unforgettable experience and the holidays of our dreams which you made happen for us.
Thank you so much.
