Bhutan trekking is the ultimate in outdoor adventure that offers an opportunity to experience the unique Buddhist culture in this Himalayan region. It is perhaps the last place on earth that has withstood the far reaching outside influences by maintaining a delicate balance of its natural environment, its ancient customs and culture with the modern-day world.
Bhutan trekking offers the best way to see the pristine countryside and its people happily living in the ways of their ancestors. Most of Bhutan is mountainous with only a small percent of flat lands is in the low lying areas of the south. Trekking Regions in Bhutan cover mostly the northern part of the country and some along the foothill regions. You will find that trekking in Bhutan is difference from trekking in Nepal mostly due to geographical conditions, although both are situated in the great Himalaya. The hillsides are near vertical and have deeper canyons with fewer farms and villages. The average distances covered between camps are greater and treks tend to be longer. Trekking in Bhutan is more physically demanding with levels of difficulties ranging between moderate and strenuous. If you are not too inclined for long treks then there are many opportunities for short hikes which are easy and as enjoyable.
The trekking season in Bhutan is from October to May, and the best time is in spring with rhododendrons, magnolias and other spring flowers are in full bloom. Many of the popular festivals also take place in spring so you will have the opportunity to combine the treks to coincide with the festivals.
