Best treks in Bhutan

Trekking in Bhutan is set in the silent mountain paths, rural villages set back in time. An escapade in the Land of Thunder Dragon is a culmination of culture, traditions and religion interwoven to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity. Bhutan is one of the best destinations for trekking due to its location in the eastern Himalayas with sparsely populated small villages scattered around the rolling hills. The land is blessed with a subtropical climate in the central areas. While the higher mountains witness snowfalls in the cold winters, the hills observer cool winds, making it an idyllic landscape.

Bhutan’s government, to protect Bhutan's pristine land and culture, has initiated a high value and low impact tourism, which results in a comparably expensive fee. However, the price to travel to a country less traveled by, with the full support of your guide and all necessary facilities, is abundant. Read more: Top 10 Reasons To Visit Bhutan

7. Snowman Trek - 30 Days (Difficulty Level: Challenging

Snowman Trek

Snowman Trek Bhutan has amassed the reputation of being ‘the hardest trek in the world’ because it is the longest hiking trail in Bhutan spanning up to 30 days. Not just the distance, but the Snowman trek route navigates through some of the highest passes in Bhutan. To top it off, Snowman Trek's difficulty is also largely dependent upon the changeable weather so it is wise to go on the trek only in the best season.

The first half of the trek is similar to the combination of the Jumolhari Trek and the Laya Gasa Trek. The second half on the other hand is distinct and stimulating. Crossing the Keche La pass (4650m/15,255ft), Jazela pass at 5200m/17,060ft, Loju La pass 5170m/16,961ft and the maximum elevation of 5350m/17,552ft at Rinchen Zoe pass through raging storms and dizzying altitudes feels like a conquest at times but the close-up views of Mt. Gangkar Puensum (7520m/24,671ft), the highest mountain in Bhutan, is all worth it.

Snowman trek cost largely hinges on the variation of the trip, but in general, it is comparatively higher than other treks. However pricey the package might be, if you are a professional trekking enthusiast then this is the most acclaimed trek in Bhutan and perhaps the world.

Accommodation And Food In Bhutan Tours And Treks

The government of Bhutan’s tourism initiative to have a registered tour operator arrange tours for foreign travelers in Bhutan has made it easier to find accommodation. You will not have to worry about finding accommodation because the tariff paying tourists whose tours are arranged by tour operators get to stay in 3 star rated hotels and guest houses.

Most of these hotels have twin sharing beds. In major cities and towns of Bhutan, like Paro, Thimpu, Punakha, Bumthang and Wangduephodrang, you may find luxury hotels where you can upgrade the room by paying an extra cost. There is also an option for homestays in local villagers to gain a true experience of their lifestyle. Homestays offer a homely warm feeling and they are clean and comfortable. On the trek, you will stay in tented accommodation. You can find state-of-the-art requirements in camps set up with the help of your trekking crew.  

Although Bhutan's food is decent, one should be aware that trekking foods will not bring you any closer to world-class culinary. Bhutan places to visit like Thimphu, Punakha and Paro have restaurants with continental dishes from India and Tibet. However, in village homestays, you will only find local food made with farm-grown products. On camping trips, you will get delicious foods freshly prepared by the guide with fresh produce. Hygiene and freshness are important factors for Bhutanese locals.

Predominantly, you can find Ema Datshi which is a mixture of chill called ‘ema’ and Cheese called ‘Datshi’ in almost all parts of Bhutan. They even consider it their native dish. Apart from that, visitors must try local dumplings-Mo: Mo, locally brewed maize, millet wine Ara and butter tea Suja, on their visit to Bhutan.

Best Time For Trekking In Bhutan

It is very important to prep for any tour in Bhutan. Apt information about the best time to visit Bhutan may help you avoid harsh weather conditions. The best time for trekking in Bhutan is considered to be during autumn from late September to November. During this time the weather is clear with unobstructed views of the high peaks. There is generally less chance of a rain shower.

Spring season from March to May is also considered to be equally good for trekking and tours. Rhododendrons, wildflowers give a vibrant appeal to the landscapes. However, you may experience a slight rainfall at times.

The winter season from December to February is cold and harsh in the higher elevation. You can go on cultural tours in villages and flat southern areas, which has a subtropical climate, during the winter. You do not have to face snow blizzards, usually found in trails above 4,000m/13,123ft elevation.

Monsoon season running from June to mid-September typically sees rainfall. The downpours make the trails muddy and slippery, thus less favorable to travel. However, the mid of September observes lesser rainfall than the onset of June, so it can also be favorable for tours.

Nights are generally chilly in all these seasons in elevations above 3,000m/9,842ft. All these seasons have their distinct characteristics making it good for trekking in Bhutan. That being said, you need to have an apt discussion with your tour guide for setting the date as per the Bhutan trekking package you will take. In challenging treks like the Snowman trek, where you will have to cross 5000m/16,404ft of altitude it is safe to travel in the prescribed season like autumn when the mountain wind is calmer. For short treks and treks that don’t take you beyond 4,000m/13,123ft altitude, you can visit at any time of the year.

Apart from the seasons and the weather, you can also ask your tour operator to time your trip during major festivals in Bhutan. Visits during the Punakha Festival, Royal Highlander Festival, Haa Summer Festival and Black Crane Festival mark the best time to get to known the Bhutanese culture and religion.

Tips For Trekking In Bhutan

Trekking in Bhutan can get challenging if you do not plan well. Hence it is wise to do some research to fully prepare for the adventure of your lifetime. Following are some of the tips you might consider during your trek to Bhutan:

  • Visit a travel doctor in your home country to get health advice and obtain your necessary medication and insurance before your trip to Bhutan, particularly for challenging treks.
  • Don’t rush to your destination when you are at an elevation above 3,000m/9,842ft. Rather, take slower steps to avoid altitude sickness.
  • Since Bhutan trekking takes you to the Himalayas in a rugged landscape, it is best if you do some regular exercise, swimming, running activities, a month before your trek. You might have to walk 7-9 hours per day for the physically challenging treks per day with lots of ascends and descends, so prepare accordingly.
  • Carry ample batteries and power bank as you will not find electricity in the campsites and rural villages
  • Be decently and properly dressed while visiting a place of religious significance- Dzong, temples You can wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants and closed shoes.
  • Since many of the religious landmarks do not allow photography of the interiors, be sure to read the signs nearby. Also, take permission before taking photography/videography or consult your guide.
  • Tipping your travel crew is a personal choice but would be appreciated by them.
  • Refrain from any immoral activity or even smoking in the religious and spiritual landmarks of Bhutan. Ask your guide for any social etiquettes if you have a doubt.
  • Carry a bag no more than 15kg which is a limit for one trekker as the horse/yak carry two trekkers baggage weighing 30kg collectively.
  • As far as possible, consider homestays because it is a great way to interact with the local people and get engaged in their chores and activates.

Conclusion

A trip to any of the above mentioned treks, whether challenging or undemanding, gives you an appropriate insight into why Bhutan is regarded as the happiest country. Bhutanese locals are hardworking but have a contented way of life that is mostly encircled around meditation, spirituality and religion, promoted by Buddhism. These tours offer you views of the high standing mountains, religious landmarks and lush forests.

Trekking and tours in Bhutan can be exciting and pleasant if you take proper precautions and make proper planning with your travel operator's help.
