TREKKING 

One of the best ways to experience the heart and soul of this unique destination is to incorporate a trek into your itinerary. With much of the kingdom covered with ancient forests and high alpine meadows, a trek will not only bring you closer to nature but provide you with the opportunity to meet rural people.
Whilst you will need to be physically fit and used to long walks, our trekking itineraries have been designed to travel at a gentle pace. You will be accompanied by a local trekking guide, cook, camp hand and horsemen who look after the yaks and ponies that transport your luggage and camping gear. The crew take care of all the camp chores and will provide you with simple but wholesome food along the way.

LAYA LINGSHI TREKS

The Laya Lingshi Trek is considered to be the second most difficult trek in Bhutan, with the Lunana Snowman Trek being the toughest.

The trek spans 15 days and four high altitude passes. Beginning in Paro, the hike initially leads to the Jumolhari Base camp. Jumolhari is one of the largest, most renowned mountains in Bhutan. From there, the trail begins to parallel the Tibetan border as it climbs over the first of its passes, Nyele La.

It then descends to the first of the remote villages on the trek, Lingshi. This village is home to the 500 year old Lingshi Dzong and over a dozen monks. From here, the trail continues for several days in the same manner, crossing high passes and following along narrow ridges and steep valleys until it reaches Sinchey La, the highest pass on the trek. At 5005 meters, the effects of altitude are definitely felt here. From Sinchey La, the trail begins a gradual descent to the village of Laya.

Laya is the one of the largest and most unique mountain villages in Bhutan. It has its own style of dress and a very unique pointed hat worn by the women. From Laya the trail continues to descend to the town of Gasa, home to some of Bhutan’s best hot springs as well as the massive Gasa Dzong. After a day of soaking in the springs, the trail continues on to its terminus in the town of Punakha.

Apart from trekking along the northern frontier, you will be also visiting the main western towns of Thimphu, Paro and Punakha. Western Bhutan is comparatively more developed than the rest of the country. Thimphu, the capital, has all the important government offices, including the King’s Secretariat. Paro has the only airport and Punakha is the ancient capital of Bhutan.
