Information Trekking in Bhutan

To see the spectacular Himalayan mountain ranges up close and personal and to be in sync with nature for a while, trekking in Bhutan through Bhutan Retreat offers you this and much more. You have a choice between short easy treks to tough challenging treks. We promise you an awesome journey into the wilderness where you travel through beautiful meadows and back breaking steep climbs, journey across virgin forests rich in flora and fauna and witness nature in its various shades and at its magnificent best. With our experienced trekking guides and team, we assure you a beautiful experience you will cherish forever.

Bhutan’s most popular trekking seasons. If you want to see alpine flowers you need to come during summer (July and August), but you should be prepared to encounter rain (and possibly leeches!). During the autumn, nights are cold but the days are clear, so you will enjoy spectacular views presenting great photo opportunities. Late spring is warmer, and the blooming season for endemic varieties of the Himalayan rhododendron, but there is a higher possibility of rain or snow. In winter, trekkers can enjoy several pleasant and not too taxing low altitude walks in the hills around the Punakha/Wangduephodrang valleys. Weather is very settled at this time of the year, with clear, sunny days and deep blue skies.

On your trek you will be accompanied by a small and efficient trekking team, who will guide you, prepare the meals, and look after all the camping arrangements. We provide two-person tents with foam mattresses, eating utensils, dining & toilet tents. Everything is transported by pack animals: horses in the low lands and yaks at higher elevations. There are no tea houses or lodges along the trekking routes.
