Things to know for Trekking in Bhutan | Bhutan Trekking Tour

Bhutan Trekking Tour: Trekking in Bhutan is almost an entirely different proposition when it comes to a high mountainous Himalayan country like Bhutan is. High elevations starting at an average of 2000 m does have a different platter on offer. Thin atmosphere when one goes up and up, the chill of cold snowy winds, acclimatization becomes a key factor that cannot be ignored at all times. So getting a hang of the high altitude for a day or two at Paro or Thimphu is advisable. One of the key basic factors in trekking, yet it gets missed by all and sundry which results in not completing a full trek or having to put your hands up and call it quits midway. So please remember not to forget the altitude factor, or simply think about how a magnificent soccer team like Brazil lost out 0-7 in the highlands of La Paz in Bolivia. That’s the fine line a spirited trekker needs to remember all the time.
