The remote Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is well known for its untouched wilderness, rich Buddhist culture and a history steeped in mystique and legend. On this unique journey, join Australian Himalayan Foundation Chair Simon Balderstone in exploring this fascinating country.
Travelling with Bhutanese operator Trophel Tours, the trip begins from Paro, after a stunning flight along the Himalaya. We spend time discovering the sights of the capital city of Thimphu, then visit the Dochu-La Pass with its many chortens and then journey to Punakha and back to Thimphu. From here the Druk Path Trek begins.
Druk Path trek is the most popular trek in the country as it passes through a gorgeous natural landscape of blue pine forests, high ridges and pristine lakes while at the same time offering the opportunity to visit some ancient lhakhangs, dzongs and villages. The trail takes you through forests of fir, blue pine and dwarf rhododendrons at altitudes ranging between 2400-4200 m. This trek also offers hikers stunning views of Mt. Gangkar Puensum, the highest unscaled peak in the world
We hope you can join Simon Balderstone and the Australian Himalayan Foundation on this incredible journey.
