Trekking in Bhutan is an experience you will remember for a lifetime! Trekking here involves being cut off from all modern amenities except the bare necessities. It is like a travelogue poetry. You can write and reminisce about it. Once you set along the trekking route, the open skies, free surroundings, crystal brooks, the hidden animals and the butterflies and birds will be your friends. However, be prepared! It is not all as easy as it sounds. Trekking in the kingdom requires at least 7-9 hours of walking at a stretch so that you can reach your destination on time. It often involves walking for long arduous hours. The best times for trekking most often depends on the weather.
Summer times you have to be prepared for the sludge and leeches but the verdant vegetation makes for great viewing. During Autumn, the nights are colder but the skies are clearer offering better photo opportunities. Late springs are great opportunities to take pictures of the luxuriant rhododendrons in the valleys.
Treks in Bhutan can last anywhere from three days to the 25-day Snow-man trek. Tourists usually trek for a week or two. The highlanders above the Snowline – Lunaps are a friendly people and you will enjoy interacting with them.
