Which are the best trekking routes in Bhutan?

Trekking in Bhutan is still quite new. Most visitors are there only for the cultural highlights and only walk as far as the Tiger's Nest. In 2016, fewer than 2,000 people booked trekking holidays in all of the country. This is one of the great things about visiting Bhutan now. Bhutan treks are still unspoilt and even the best trekking routes are incredibly quiet. 

Having trekked a lot in the country we know which are the best trekking routes in Bhutan. And we also know what are the best itineraries for those treks. In Bhutan, we have decided to focus on three routes. The very short Druk Path trek  with visits to  the most important cultural destinations. The longer Chomolhari trek which takes you into the big Himalayan mountain country. For most trekkers we believe this is the best Bhutan trek to choose. And finally, as a private trip we also offer the famous Snowman trek. At 25 days this is the longest trek we operate and is as difficult as climbing Aconcagua.

A map of these three routes and more detail on each route is below.

The Druk Path trek is a four day trek which leads from Paro to Thimphu. It crosses 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

Chomolhari Trek

The Chomolhari trek is fantastic for trekkers looking for a high altitude experience that isn't too long. And with Kandoo we make sure to build in enough time to soak in the cultural. This includes the Tiger's Nest Monastery and the best of Paro and Thimphu.

Snowman Trek

Snowman Trek

| 25 Days

The Snowman trek goes to the remote Lunana district. It is the most difficult trek in Bhutan. It should only be considered if you have experience and a good level of fitness as it crosses three passes over 6000m. The trek can be closed by snow and is almost impossible during winter. The recommended trekking season is March-May and September-November.
