Bhutan is a small country nestled in the wings of the mighty and spectacular Himalayan ranges; one of nature’s most crafted possessions and the lofty Himalayas presents the ultimate paradise for trekking and hiking enthusiasts. Bhutan Trekking Adventure holiday offers short beautiful treks for beginners, moderate in terms of difficulty for the mid-level and some of the most difficult treks in the world for the ardent trekker. Despite the high altitude and tough terrain the view of the snow capped mountains, peaceful meadows, secluded nomadic and highland villages and settlements, beautiful lakes, diverse flora and fauna, breathtaking sunrise and sunsets, un-crowded serene walking trails and many more are the regular highlights of trekking in Bhutan.
To make your trekking all the more comfortable you will be accompanied by your very own dedicated trekking team consisting of a trekking tour guide, a trained chef and helper, horse men and horses to carry your luggage. All you need to carry is a sunscreen, camera and a water bottle. Medical assistance will be at your call if necessary. Your trekking team will take off before you so that the campsite is well prepared once you get there; you will be welcomed with a hot beverage with snacks, bonfire/campfire where possible and your pitched tents.

We plan to run more exploration treks along different sections of The Great Himalaya (“GHT”) in the future such as Kanchenjunga Base Camp to Makalu Base Camp (Nepal)
This turned out to be a major hitch for the team — consisting of Ben Clark, Timmy Olson, and Anna Frost — who had to book a guided package tour with a licensed Bhutanese Tour Operator. Then they had to figure out how to get their guides to keep up. The entourage that was forced on them consisted of one guide, five cooks, two horsemen, and 21 horses carrying food, water, and expedition gear. The guide, Wang Chuk, told Clark that 18 days was the fastest he could commit, and even then, he’d be forcing the staff to go without any breaks, moving twice as fast as the normal expedition pace. “I found out later that the more senior guides had left when they heard we were arriving,” says Clark. “They all thought we were insane.”
On the trail, Clark and team encountered relentless rain and snow that kept them constantly wet, and turned paths already churned up from horse hooves into knee-deep ravines of shoe-sucking mud. Temperatures dipped into the teens, resulting in some close calls with hypothermia. The altitude was a constant stressor, with 11 mountain passes topping 16,000 feet. A fourth teammate, Chris Ord, was forced to accept a medical evacuation after succumbing to pulmonary edema. But Clark says their most critical challenge was getting the Bhutanese crew to understand, and buy into, the speed-record goal.
