Overview

This unique tour offers an in-depth visit of the Himalaya´s most unique and lesser visited destination, Bhutan. Sharing its ´roof of the world´ status with neighboring Tibet and Nepal, Bhutan is an anomaly in the scope of adventure travel. It remains a devoted and peaceful Buddhist Kingdom whereby all tourism is operated by a well-organized Government initiative that fosters direct representation by the Bhutanese themselves. Bhutan is a magical destination and we welcome you to discover it with us in 2020! This tour can be classified as an active tour of Bhutan´s diverse cultural ethnicity and wonderful mountain nature. The trip is rated as a trekking holiday with extended days in remote areas but not exceeding more than 10,000 feet. It is rated more difficult than a day hiking tour so expect to be hiking every day (with exception of travel days). Staying in tent camps / basic lodgings utilizing horses for carrying your baggage is part of this adventure. If you´re seeking a glimpse of Himalaya culture and an extraordinary Kingdom of happy citizens than this is a perfect tour for you! Bhutan is expensive and has some of the highest daily visa fees on the planet. For this reason, it receives much tourism investment and pours this capital back into tourism infrastructure. Our hotel standard is generally 3 star throughout and they are located in excellent locations. For our trekking days, our local outfitter supplies dome tents and a porter/cooking team. Meals are simple and nourishing. The food is clean and well prepared and mostly local specialty dishes are served. Our trip involves travel by modern, private coach and we also have 2 flights included within the country itself. Altitudes are moderate on this journey ranging from 7-9000 feet and at times we´ll hike passes that exceed just over 10,000 feet. October weather is autumn but it´s mild by our standards (65 F) however nights may be in the 30s. This is a great season to trek as weather conditions are in our favor. TOUR HIGHLIGHTS * Diverse landscapes from soaring Himalaya Mountains to rural villages, ancient plantations and temples. * Engaging local cultural aspects with an emerging music, art and culinary scene. * A real life insight into the ´happiest culture´ on the planet and a chance to pick up some tips in this department! * Sensible trekking distances to allow you to experience the landscapes and local cultures and to sleep under one of the most incredible star shows on the planet! * An opportunity to give back to the Developing World communities and to spread a message of peace and unity (Bring along any hiking gear you no longer need to donate to local community!)
