Trekking in Bhutan can not only be physically challenging but also mentally arduous. Weather is unpredictable and thus the spells for good high-altitude Bhutan trekking tour are rather short: about 3 weeks in April and 3-4 weeks in October. The chances of a completely blue-sky weather are most in the second half of April or the first three weeks of October. There are a number of low-altitude short-duration winter treks though. You may consider trekking these routes in other seasons as well.
With some of best trekking routes in the world, Bhutan has always fascinated the insatiate traveler with its rugged beauty, a living Buddhist culture, and friendly people. Bhutan trekking tour starts with relatively easy 5-day Druk Path to the formidable 24-day Snowman Route, the country offers its unique geography to the thirst of those with tough legs and sinewy guts.
A cross-country Bhutan trekking routes will take you through the extreme bounties of nature: thick evergreen forests, undulating hills and vertical cliffs, bald and snow-capped mountaintops, deep ravines and gorges, gentle valleys and foothills. Most Bhutan trekking tour routes start at the temperate region and run through alpine regions covering a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions.
The rugged terrain and high altitude means extreme difficulty in reaching instant rescue services. Those with altitude sickness must take extra precaution. However, in times of emergencies choppers are arranged for rescue operations. There are no lodges for night halts or eateries in the higher regions. All food and camping equipment must be carried on horseback.
The Tourism Council of Bhutan has approved and opened 11 Bhutan trekking routes at the moment. They range from 3 to 23 days hike. However, several routes around Thimphu and Paro offer brisk day hikes.
