Bhutan Walking Tours
Travel & Transportation
This Bhutan walking tour is a tailor made, eleven day itinerary which can, of course, be adapted to suit your interests and needs. But if having the option to arrive at some of Bhutan’s most splendid cultural sites on foot rather than by vehicle appeals, then this Bhutan walking holiday will certainly do the trick. Walking rather than full on trekking and wild camping, this trip is for visitors who love to walk but perhaps not all day every day, and also enjoy the comfort of hotels.
The reason why walking holidays in Bhutan are such a wonderful way to discover the country is mainly because some of its isolated regions, remote monasteries and villages are only accessible on foot. You will, therefore, also be walking in the footsteps of ancient pilgrims or traders and in many places will feel as if you have walked back in time, exploring the wonders of the country’s splendid Paro, Punakha, Thimphu and Phobjikha Valleys.
Highlights of this trip include hiking in the Phobjikha Valley, famous for being home to the black-necked crane between the months of November to March, trekking up to the stunning Taktshang Monastery, perched on a 900m high cliff, and also walking up to 18th century Lungchotse Lhakhang. From here, you will have earned a view over the Bhutan Himalayas.
As well as the bigger pictures of the Himalayas, you will also get a chance to see every day life in Bhutan, visiting small villages, farms, having a cooking lesson or taking part in a Buddhist meditation. Because this walking holiday is not only about taking steps through Bhutan’s stunning landscapes, but also into its everyday life and precious culture.
