The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Longer Journeys, Trekking & Walking

To many, no trip to the Himalayas is really complete without getting into the countryside and walking through the rural villages and farmland that line the foothills. Breathe in the fresh air, and see the traditional way of life that has such a timeless charm and quality. This itinerary features a range of day walks, so that you can have a superb trekking experience, but each night return to the comfort of a lovely hotel and not have to put up with a tented camp. We can of course arrange for adventurous treks, such as the Druk Path Trek of Bumthang Cultural Trek, but we feel doing it this way gives the perfect balance between adventure and comfort.

The itinerary includes day walks in Paro and Thimphu, the Giligang Trail in Punakha, the Longtey Hike in Gangtey and the day treks to the Tang, Ura and Chhume Valleys in Bumthang.
