Trekking is probably the best way to discover a country, especially for a mystic destination like Bhutan. Gifted with the massive Himalayan mountain ranges, lush forests and picturesque natural scenery, Bhutan is every trekker’s dream.
There are 5 national parks, 4 wildlife sanctuaries and 1 strict nature reserve covering about 51.44% of the country, which is why Bhutan is the first and only carbon-negative country until now. Due to its geographic location, the flora and fauna are very diverse, and some species can only be seen in Bhutan. Because of the sparse population and limited visitors, trails are not heavily travelled. So you can fully enjoy the pristine nature along the trek.
Bhutan is a Buddhist kingdom and travelers can learn to appreciate their rich culture when visiting dzongs, temples and other religious landmarks. Some of the famous sites to visit are the Tiger’s Nest, Punakha Dzong or Paro Dzong, they are the great examples of Bhutanese architecture. They are also the best location to have the whole view of Bhutan’s charming scenery.
There are all kinds of treks in Bhutan, from easy ones like the Druk Path Trek for beginners to one of the toughest treks in the world like the Snowman Trek for experts. Spring (March – May) and autumn (September - November) are when the weather is most ideal for trekking, but winter is a good time as well with the clear sky for the best view of the Himalayas.
Tour duration – 18 days/ 17 nights.
Trek duration – 9 days
Tour destination – Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, Bumthang, and Paro.
Bhutan is a charming yet mystic destination in the Himalayas. Only when you have set foot on this land, you will see why it’s dearly named the Last Shangri La. If you wish to discover the country’s stunning landscape along the treks as well as to understand more about the Bhutanese culture and traditions, the Dhur Hot Spring Trek may be the one for you!
This is a difficult trek in Bhutan, so it requires a professional level of trekking, but it will definitely worth the effort.

The heritage museum has is constructed as a rural house from the mid-19th century with rammed mud timber and household objects, allowing visitors to best imagine people’s life back at the time. You will then see the practicing of thagzo – Bhutan’s art of weaving using different styles and materials at the National Textile Museum.
Later, we will make our way to the National Institute for Zorig Chusum. Opened by the government, the institute plays an integral role in the preservation and promotion of the traditional arts and crafts of Bhutan. The locals call it the ‘Arts And Crafts School’ or the ‘Painting School’, and students learn traditional arts of Bhutan here. From embroidery, painting to statue-making and more, visitors will definitely be impressed with the skills and disciplines of the students at such a young age. There is a gallery where you can see more of the students’ works.
The rest of the day will be for you to acclimate and we will stay the first night at the hotel in Thimphu.

Tashichho Dzong is a must-visit site for any travelers to Thimphu. It is a striking construction which stands on the bank of the river. First built in 1216 A.D, the complex has a long history, consisting times of being damaged by fire and rebuilt, before being renovated by King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck when he moved the capital to Thimphu. Today, it houses the Bhutanese government.
The rest of your first day will be for city exploration. Thimphu is a charming city, bustling with shops, bazaars, and hospitality locals. You will see that everyone wears their Bhutanese traditional dress, this is a way to preserve the country’s culture.

There is nothing can quite compare to the feeling of standing from Dochula Pass and looking out to see the magnificent scenery. Not only the stunning view, you can also see 108 “Druk Wangyal Chortens” built to commemorate the soldiers died in the war against insurgents from India.

The temple is specially popular with women who wish to have children and those who just have newborns, they believe and come here to receive blessings. Don’t worry if you come here without looking for fertility or blessings, you are still welcome here. This is still a nice experience which lets you learn more about the Bhutanese culture.
Similar to Tashichho Dzong, Punakha Dzong, or the ‘Place of Great Happiness’ is one of the sites that should not be missed. Regarded as one of the most spectacular dzongs in Bhutan, this landmark has witnessed some of the most important moments in the history of Bhutan. Punakha Dzong offers a great view of the Pho Chhu and Mo Chhu, since it stands right at the confluence of the 2 rivers.
Not far from Punakha Dzong, we will head to Pho Chhu Suspension Bridge. With 160m in length, it is the longest suspension bridge in Bhutan. From the bridge, we can enjoy the wonderful sight of Punakha Dzong and Pho Chhu Valley.

Day 04: Punakha to Gangtey
- Altitude in Gangtey: 2,900m
- Distance: 87km
- Estimated travel time: 3hrs
The cool air in the morning will be ideal for a hike to Khamsum Yuelley Namgyal Chorten (1,500m). The chorten perches on a ridge above the Punakha Valley. We will cross the suspension bridge, then ascend 200m up the hill. The hike will be 1 hour, and despite the trail may be a bit muddy, it’s an easy walk. Khamsum Yuelley Namgyal Chorten is one of Bhutan’s finest architectural examples, yet it is the only one of its kind in the world. It is nothing similar to other striking sites you come through in Bhutan. The building is a pagoda-style stupa with 4 stories, and various smaller pagodas surrounding it.
Later, join a famous and pleasant hike - the Gangtey Nature Trail. It is a popular walk, especially for travelers to discover the scenery of Gangtey valley. From the small hilltop overlooking Gangtey Goemba, the trails will descend to beautiful meadows then to Semchubara village. After the village, the thick forest of blue pines will welcome us. You will certainly enjoy the feeling of being close with nature, listening to the small sounds from the inhabitants of the forest. Continue and we will soon arrive at a valley viewpoint.

From the impressive building, you will have the breathtaking views of Gangtey valley with stretches of green fields, untouched forests and great mountains.
Tonight, we will stay at the hotel in Gangtey.
Day 05: Gangtey to Bumthang
- Altitude in Bumthang: 2,800m
- Distance: 158km
- Estimated travel time: 6hrs
Say goodbye to the fairytale-like meadows and forests of Gangtey, we will travel to Bumthang. Bumthang comprises of four smaller valleys namely Tang, Ura, Choekhor and Chumey. Coming to the region, you will see to some of the oldest palaces, Buddhist temples and monasteries in the entire kingdom. And each of them will wow you with intriguing history and astounding architecture!
The drive today will be quite long. Trongsa lies between Gangtey and Bumthang, and it also owns some famous attractions. So, there is no reason to miss out on a chance to discover Trongsa. We will take you to a number of attractions to tell you more about this city. In the late afternoon, we will arrive in Bumthang.
The first place to explore will be the historic Ta Dzong, the famous watchtower which once guarded Trongsa Dzong from internal rebellion. After that, it now serves as the National Museum with impressively large collections dedicated to the Wangchuck Dysnasty. Visitors can gain an insight of kingdom’s history from the collections. The information is very well presented and the items are quite diverse, you can see from ancient relics to statues of deities.
Continue and visit Trongsa Dzong. The building has a strategic location, sitting high above the roaring Mangde Chhu river. Completed in 1644, the complex is considered the most spectacular dzong in Bhutan, and you may agree with that opinion even before arriving here. From afar, Trongsa Dzong catches the eyes for its striking architecture with a sheer drop to the south that disappears behind the thick veils of cloud. The buildings trail down the ridge and are connected by a succession of alley-like corridors, with wide stone stairs. Between the buildings, you will come across lovely paved courtyards. Trongsa Dzong is so massive that it is easily visible from anywhere in town, thus remains a captivating sight to behold for visitors and locals.
In the afternoon, we will take a tour inside the Yathra Weaving Center. At the weaving center, you can understand more about the intriguing process of weaving yathras, the local’s unique woven textile with deep colors and mesmerizing designs. Besides, we will drive slowly and make stops for refreshments and sightseeing at certain spots.
We will stay at the hotel in Bumthang for the night.
Day 06: Discover Bumthang
Enjoy breakfast and then we will head to the famous Jambay Lhakhang, one of the sacred temples built by the 7th-century Tibetan king Songsten Gampo. The locals believe the king built the temples in only one day to subdue a demoness from Tibet, and Jambay Lhakhang was to pin down her left knee. The ancient temple was later visited by Guru Rinpoche and renovated by the Sindhu Raja after the Guru restored his life force.
Next, visit the imposing and important temple complex Kurjey Lhakhang. The sacred site is where the body (kur) print (jey) of Guru Rinpoche is preserved, located in a cave in the oldest of the three buildings of the complex.
We will then see the holy water at Kurjey Drupchu, located near Kurjey Temple. Kurjey Drupchu is believed to have been blessed by Guru Rinpoche himself.
From Kurjey Drupchu, we will have the options of driving or walking to Tamshing monastery. The walk will be around 1 hour, but we recommend this option if you would like to sightsee. The building, formally called Tamshing Lhendup Chholing (Temple of the Good Message), is the most important Nyingma goemba in Bhutan. Established in 1501 by the great spiritual master Pema Lingpa, the site was privately owned by his descendants until 1960. The unusual structure of the building was erected by Pema Lingpa himself, with the help of khandromas, who made many of the statues.
In the afternoon, we visit Mebar Tsho (The Flaming Lake), one of the most sacred sites in the country. The lake has its name following a legend that Pema Lingpa had dreamed of the treasure hidden by Guru Rinpoche in the lake. So, with a lamp in his hand, he had dove into the water, retrieved the treasure and submerged from the lake; while the lamp still alighted. When coming here, devout Bhutanese always send a little lamp floating on the water and make a wish.
