The daily routine on a Bhutanese trek

At Kandoo, we never put pressure on our trekkers to rush or meet strict travel deadlines. That been said, it is nice to be one of the first few groups to leave the village each morning and beat the crowds, especially in the high season.

Every morning, you will have a hearty breakfast and pack your bags, then a quick briefing with your guide(s) to discuss plans for the day when you have a chance to voice any questions or concerns. During this briefing your guide will do the daily health check and blood oxygen level test. Once this is complete you will start the day's trek.

On the trek itself, most of your luggage will be carried by porters and / or pack animals (depending on route). We do ask you to keep your main equipment bag to below 15 kg. All you will have carry is a day pack which holds your water bottle, sun screen, a spare jacket or extra layer, camera, etc. 

You can expect to walk for 3 to 4 hours then stop for a picnic lunch along the trail.  The afternoon’s travel is generally shorter, and you can expect to arrive at the next campsite by afternoon tea.

Sometimes, because you cannot ascend too quickly, the entire day’s travel will be achieved before lunch, and you can spend the rest of the day exploring, having a wash, or even sitting down with a book. After dinner, the evenings are free as well and we would recommend that you bring cards, scrabble and a good book.
