Trekking in Bhutan is a unique experience unlike many of the more crowded treks offered in Asia. The variety of treks range from a simple three-day trek from the district of Thimphu to Paro (and vice versa) to the 25-day legendary snow man treks through some of most exquisite spots in the country. The snow man trek also labels the most toughest trek as it goes over 12 mountains passes, all of them over 4,500 meter.

On your trek you will pass through small communities several days walk away from the nearest road where life has changed little over the generations. On trek one will see the amazing amount of forest that covers the major portion of Bhutanese land. More that 70% of the land is under forest cover.

Trek in Bhutan takes you though dense mixed forest of Oak, Wild Peach, Bamboo, Rhododendron, magnolia, Azelea, Blue pine, Chir pine, cypress and fir.
