Jhomolhari Base Camp Trek
from $3,300 / 11 days Bhutan's Most Famous Peak
One of Bhutan’s most popular treks, Mount Jhomolhari (a.k.a. Chomolhari) offers spectacular views from over seven-thousand meters of elevation.
Bhutan’s deeply venerated guardian peak, rises on the Tibet-Bhutan border near the major ancient trade route from India into Tibet’s Phari Valley. It is thought by many to be the most beautiful mountain in the whole length of the Himalayas. The trek passes through Bhutan’s little-visited villages, valley’s and forests, with opportunities to see blue sheep, along with a huge variety of bird life.
The trek is possible from late march till November. However it is best in either in spring months of April and May, or in the Autumn from late September until early November. The rainy seasons affect from late June and can stay as late till early September. However this is also the blooming season in alpine meadows. Snow usually closes the high passes from mid to late November and don’t reopen until late march or early April.
This trip is recommended for individuals with a bit of hiking experience that are in good physical shape. A modicum of training befoehand is advised, as physical activity at this altitude can be strenuous.
from $4,200 / 14 Days Explore Bhutan's Treasures
Our two week tour offers a full chance to explore the best Bhutan has to offer without the need to rush about.
This tour will take you to the wild east of the nation, driving through six distinct regional districts. When you reach the far eastern part of Bhutan you will see the roads winding through a series of passes, through dark pine forests, wild green meadows, and a range of fruit orchards.
Travelers seldomly visit this eastern area, but it is rich in cultural and architectural assets, and full of amazing surprises. While in traveling through the six districts you can see the variation in the social-cultural life of the Bhutanese citizens, and experience a range of geographies. We will also visit significant historical and cultural places of interest along the way, such as the famous Bhutanese Dzongs (temples).
This tour can be taken any time of the year, but you may opt to coincide your trip with the festivals of the region (contact us for more details on upcoming events).
from $11,000 / 30 Days The Ultimate Trekking Experience
From the multitude of treks available in the Himalayas, The Snowman Trek stands alone on the top.
This will be an epic mountain trek with amazing wilderness and culture, a true experience of a lifetime. However, this trek is not for everyone. It takes many days -- the most difficult trek in the country. We’ll cross dozen of high passes, many over 5,000 meters, as we pass through the highest and wildest corners of Bhutan. If you are the kind of adventurer who wants to push your limits with the most challenging, remote, and beautiful trek imaginable, then look no further than The Snowman Trek.
The Snowman Trek is not an easy trek to organize because of several logistical challenges, such as arranging the Yaks and porters, arranging proper guiding services, pre-planning rescue in case of emergencies, and providing good equipment and supplies. Luckily, Bhutan Trips has experts guides in our team, who have done The Snowman Trek many times of the past decade or so.
The window for good trekking on the Snowman Trek is extremely small as the trek is very long in duration. The best time to start in the spring is from last week in April, and in the fall it's best to start between last week in September until the first week in October.
