IS TREK OR HIKE POSSIBLE TO DO IN BHUTAN? YES, OF COURSE. IT IS POSSIBLE BUT JUST A BIT EXPENSIVE?
The Druk Path trek in Bhutan is a short five-day trek, which leads from Paro to Thimphu or vice versa, crossing the chain of mountains that separates the two beautiful valleys. Although the Druk path trek route is sparsely inhabited, there are wonderful lakes teeming with fishes and the area is famous for its spectacular rhododendron forests, which bloom in April or May. In the clear weather of late autumn and winter, there are great views of the Himalayas in Bhutan.
Our Bhutan exploration begins with a hike to Taktsang monastery (the Tiger’s nest). This helps you in getting acclimatized for the trek to Drugyal Dzongs, Shana Shana, Soi Thangthangkha, Jangothang, Dumzo Dhumzo, Thombu Shong, Shana Zam and then back to Drugyal Dzong.
The Druk path trekking in Bhutan provides breathtaking views of towering rugged peaks like Chomolhari (7320 meters), Jichu Drake (6900meters) and Tshrim Khang, ruined forts, pristine villages, rivers, lakes, lush forests of oak, pine, rhododendrons, spruce and abundant wildlife provides the trip with constantly changing sceneries and experiences along with a special connection with nature.
