Your expedition in global travel has begun as you head to Paro, Bhutan. As your airplane descends, take in views of mountainous terrain and deep valleys. A local guide will meet you at the airport to transport you to a local hotel. 

Take the afternoon to rest, unpack, and do a little bit of exploring. There are many monasteries in the area to discover, or you can stroll through town for some window shopping. In the evening, you’ll meet with your group and guides for an authentic Bhutan dinner, an excellent opportunity to get to know your guides and get an overview of the week’s schedule. 

Today will be the first trek of the week. Enjoy a spectacular hike on foot on a well-maintained uphill path. You’ll climb through pine forests, Spanish moss, and groves of prayer flags. Stop for lunch halfway at Taktsang cafeteria, part of a monastery that clings to a cliff that plunges over 1000 meters into the lower valleys. Finally, you will reach the Tiger’s Nest viewpoint to absorb breathtaking views of rolling hills, valleys, cliffs and mountains. Be sure to take lots of pictures! Following this, you’ll head back to your hotel in Paro. 

Start your morning with an easy one-hour climb before ascending more steeply. The trail will lead you through pine forests and rhododendrons until you reach Paro Valley with a snow-capped mountain backdrop. Enjoy lunch with a view! You’ll continue your trek on a narrow ridge. Keep an eye out for Mount Jomolhari. You’ll finally reach the camp where tents will be set up, and a well-deserved hot dinner will be waiting for you. 

Today’s four-hour trail continues along a rocky ridge where you can enjoy the adrenaline of walking over suspension bridges and cables. Keep a lookout for wildlife such as mountain goats, snakes, and exotic birds. You’ll finally reach the camp, which has incredible views of the Juchi Drake mountains. Get some rest before another day of adventures!

On today’s trek, you will descend from the mountains and hike along the glacial lake of Jim Lang Sho. This lake is known for its huge-sized trout. Enjoy lunch by the water and have a try at fishing. The trail will take you through dwarf rhododendron trees where you can take a second to appreciate how the vegetation in Bhutan differs from that of your home country. You will finally reach a yak herders camp, where the inhabitants will welcome you for the night. Learn how these groups survive and thrive in an extremely remote location. 

Today’s hike will bring you to the National Memorial Chorten, which was dedicated to world peace and prosperity in the early 1970s. After lunch, you will trek to Changangkha Lhakhang, which is a temple on the ridge near Thimphu. You’ll be guided to a nearby preserve to see the rare national animal of Bhutan, the takin, long associated with the country’s history and mythology. Enjoy a bus ride to a lookout point where you can see the capital, nunnery temple, and the Fortress of Glorious Religion. You will spend your last night in Bhutan in a luxury hotel in Thimphu as a reward for your efforts.

It has been an adventurous week in Bhutan, but the time has come to say goodbye. Enjoy one final breakfast with your group and guides before being transferred to the local airport for your flight home. We hope to see you at another one of our trips soon!
