Event description
Immerse into the pristine natures of Bhutan on this popular trekking adventure with curated cultural tours in Paro, Thimphu & Punakha valley

About this Event

The actual trekking is for 6 days only. The first full day is spent on an excursion trip to acclimatize and the last day of the Trek offers you some opportunity to spend whole afternoon in Thimphu, the capital city.

The six day Druk Path Trek is one of the most popular treks in the country as it passes through a gorgeous natural landscapes of blue pine forests, high ridges and pristine lakes while at the same time offering opportunity to visit some ancient temples, fortresses and villages. Although graded Moderate – Difficult, the Druk Path Trek is a fairly easy hike to undertake as the distances between rest camps are shorter. The trail takes you through forests of fir, blue pine and dwarf rhododendrons at altitudes ranging between 2400m – 4200m above sea level. On the third day of the trek, we will arrive at Jigmelang Lake whose crystal-clear waters are home to gigantic trouts.

This trek also offers stunning views of Mt. Gangkar Puensum, the highest unscaled peak in the world. The best times to embark o this trek are from early February to Mid-June and September to Mid-December.

The last two days of the trip will be spent on cultural tours in Thimphu and Punakha valley.
