In the eastern edges of Himalayas, Bhutan is one of the dream destinations to visit. Bhutan lies between India and Tibet which makes approachable from both the countries and a popular tourist attraction. One of the best ways to explore this Buddhist Kingdom Bhutan and its spectacular mountain ranges is through Trekking. Bhutan is eminent for mountain adventures like trekking.


Bhutan Tour Packages


Many Bhutan tour packages are offered from different destinations of the world. The visas are given to travelers who book these tour packages through tour operators. That is the reason transfers, accommodation, guiding etc. Travelling with a support group is always suggested.


Snowman Trek

Snowman Trek is one of the most beautiful treks in the world and ranked as one of the hardest treks by trekking experts. Paro the western district as the starting point and central region of Bumthang and Trongsa as the finishing point, this wonderful trek covers almost the whole part of the higher mountain peaks of the Himalayas in Bhutan. The highest of this trekking is splendid with the views of mountains, the highland villages, the lush green and turquoise glacier lakes.

Laya Gasa Trek


Situated in a remote area of North Butan, Laya Gasa Trek is beautiful and has a mesmerizing view to amuse you. However, the rugged location, which is occupied mostly by nomadic communities, may reduce your interest in visiting the trek.
