Trekking in Bhutan is the best way to experience its well-conserved pristine natural environment. Trail meanders through green meadows where hairy yaks graze; elusive blue sheep and takins gallop on mountain slopes and tall rhododendron trees bursting with pink and red flowers adorn the valleys and mountain tops. You will also pass through villages of nomadic yak herders and be captivated by their closet rustic lifestyle. As mountains in Bhutan are considered abode of deities and home for legendary yeti – hence they remain unconquered.
The Land of the Thunder Dragon is one of the most beautiful yet remote and inaccessible countries in the world. So whether you’re going on a short hike in the lowlands or challenging yourself to an epic high-altitude trek, you need to prepare yourself for the raw wilderness and harsh conditions that any traveller to Bhutan faces.
The small Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon, lies in the soaring peaks and forested valleys of the eastern Himalayas. Isolated from the world for centuries, it is famously protective of its traditional, sacred heritage. Access to most of the country is restricted, though any trekker making the effort to travel to this remote mountainous region will receive a warm welcome.
