Though it is relatively easy and a short trek, there is one day that involves a long climb and descends (about 500meters) to Phephe La (3360 meters). However, there is no significant altitude gain and your night halts are all below 3100 meters (10,100feet).
This three day Bumthang valley cultural trek passes through several villages on its meandering route through Bumthang countryside, and provides an exceptional opportunity for contact with Bhutanese rural life.
