Druk Path Discovery Trek

Trekking
11 Days

Tour Description

Experience the beauty of Bhutan as you hike through beautiful rhododendron and pine forests, camp near high-altitude lakes, and, in clear weather, panoramic Himalayan views. At its peak, the trek reaches 13,800 feet (4,100 meters), and is the perfect option for those looking to combine an adventurous wilderness exploration with a fantastic experience of Bhutanese culture.

We’ll give you plenty of time to visit some of the many highlights of the Paro and Thimphu Valleys including historic Dzongs, ancient monasteries, temples and thriving villages. Due to the altitude, it is best to be fit and healthy for this moderate trek.

Along the journey, we’ll provide luxury accommodations at our hotels and resorts with comfortable campsites en route. All luggage and camping gear will be transported by a support crew. Trekking brings you closer to the heart and soul of Bhutan.

Let your journey begin today.
