Bhutan is a trekkers and campers paradise. You will get the opportunity to explore some of the most remote mountainous sections of the Eastern Himalaya if you go trekking in Bhutan. Along the journey, we make our way through thick forests and up into the alpine zone where we do some hiking. We travel along paths that connect the dispersed communities that are only reachable on foot or on horseback. Hikers and trekkers will find that Bhutan is a veritable paradise here. In Bhutan, two of the most common kinds of outdoor activities that visitors choose to partake in are hiking and trekking. In contrast to the hiking and trekking routes in Nepal, the routes around Bhutan feature almost no human settlements. The woodland walking routes that can be found all throughout this stunning kingdom are secluded, unspoiled, and unexplored, and they provide you with the best possible Himalayan trekking and hiking experience.
Hiking trips can be found in Bhutan that are suitable for people of varying fitness levels and ages. You can choose a hill-walking adventure that is suitable for your interests, degree of physical condition, and available time, with options ranging from simple one-day walks to challenging month-long excursions. We follow ancient trade routes that date back to the time when Bhutan and Tibet were both active trading partners. There are vistas available of some of the most towering peaks in the Himalaya. Chomolhari (7,326m), Jitchu Drake (6.970m), Masang Kang (7,194m), and Gangkar Punsum are among them (7,541m).
The Druk Path Trek, the Soi Yaksa Trek, and the Jomolhari Trek are among the most well-known hiking excursions in all of Bhutan. These hikes take you through lush forests, alpine lakes, and traditional Bhutanese farms as you travel through old footpaths that were used to connect Bhutanese cities before motorable highways were constructed. One is able to select a hike that is suitable for their level of physical fitness by considering the degree of difficulty. Every hiker and hill walker who is interested in seeing the stunning environment of Bhutan can find a suitable path to follow in Bhutan. This includes both novice and experienced trekkers.
Because there are no teahouse accommodations like there are on treks in Nepal, every trip in Bhutan is done in the style of camping. In the Bhutan Himalaya, independent travel is not possible at any point. whereas the majority of individuals who hike in Nepal do so on their own, guided treks are also available. You are need to make use of an operator in order to organize your trek according to the legislation in Bhutan. Visits to cultural landmarks in Thimpu, Paro, and Punakha, such as the legendary Tiger's Nest Monastery, which serves as an acclimatization climb for many treks, are included in virtually every one of Bhutan's trekking itineraries.
Routes, trails, and forests in Bhutan are mostly unexplored and, as a result, remain in their natural, unspoiled state. Bhutan provides access to these undisturbed areas. The experience of camping amid yak pastures and eating authentic Bhutanese food is an absolute must if you visit Bhutan. The views of Jomolhari and the peaks that surround it are a joy to see. Therefore, sign up to go trekking with Accessible Adventure in Bhutan!
Best time to go trekking in Bhutan
The springtime in Bhutan, specifically the months of March through May, is the ideal time to go trekking because this is when the country's valleys are at their most vibrant and picturesque. You are guaranteed to have a wonderful time in Bhutan, thanks to its natural setting and all of the stunning creations that nature has spawned, and you will leave the country with a memory that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. The months of June through August are known as the "shoulder season" due to the high amount of precipitation that occurs during that time. This is due to the fact that when it rains, hiking and other activities that take place outside are less pleasurable.
On the other side, the holiday season begins in the fall, making it more likely that you will have trouble obtaining a travel permit as well as a suitable hotel room. Even though it is one of the finest seasons to travel, there will be a lot of visitors on the trails, so despite the fact that it is one of the best times to go, these are things to consider. Summer is the slowest time of year for tourism when there are fewer people traveling to see the sights.
