Kandoo's trekking routes in Bhutan

The development of trekking in Bhutan is still in its very early days and this is one of the great things about visiting now. It is as close to unspoilt and pristine trekking as you can find. All the trekking is camping based as Bhutan has none of the lodge infrastructure that has grown so rapidly in Nepal. And far fewer people in Bhutan actually live away from the main valley regions so as you trek higher you really do get into wilderness and the only people you will encounter are nomadic yak herders.

In Bhutan, we have decided to focus on three trekking routes. The very short Druk Path trek, which is a really short trek that allows you to include the most inportant cultural destinations; the longer Chomolahri trek which takes you into the heart of the big mountain country on a 6 day trek and the famous Snowman trek. At 25 days this is the longest trek we operate and is up there with Aconcagua for difficulty. 

A map showing the location of these routes and a brief introduction to each route is below.  Check out our blog on the top 5 trekking routes in Bhutan.

Druk Path Trek

The Druk Path trek is a six day trek, which leads from Paro to Thimphu, crossing stunning natural landscapes through blue pine forests, dwarf rhododendrons, high ridges and crystal clear lakes. There are many opportunities to view ancient lhakhangs, dzongs and quiet unspoilt villages.

Chomolhari Trek

The Chomolhari trek is fantastic for trekkers looking for an off-the-beaten path, high altitude experience that isn't too long. And with Kandoo we make sure to build in enough time to soak in the cultural gems of the Tiger Monastery and the sites of Paro and the capital, Thimphu.

Snowman Trek

The Snowman trek goes to the remote Lunana district and is considered to be the most difficult trek in Bhutan. The attributes making it a tough trek are; distance, high altitudes, weather conditions and remoteness and should only be considered if you have experience and a good level of fitness. The trek is subject to closure because of snow and is almost impossible during winter. The recommended season for this trek is March-May and September to November.
