Footloose Bhutan offers you the chance to explore Bhutan’s incredible beauty, clean air, unspoiled and un-crowded trails that offer trekker an exhilarating and memorable experience. Trekking in Bhutan is an unforgettable experience – a journey to a remote land often far from civilization, a journey of cultural exchange, a journey back in time, a journey of discovery about others and about one’s self; above all it is a complete and unique experience which satisfies adventurous ambitions and provides inner fulfillment.
You walk with a daypack, typically containing your camera, water bottle and small personal items. Pack animals will transport the rest of the equipment, along with camping gear and food. Excellent and nutritious meals are prepared by our experienced cooks and are served in our enclosed dining tent with tables and camp stools. Our private guides lead the way, explaining the sites and traditions and natural history of the area. Local staff handles all the camp chores.
We offer a variety of treks to suit every level of fitness and age. The descriptions provided here are brief. Please write for detailed information on the treks that interest you.
When to Trek
For walkers the most appropriate trekking times are mid-March to mid-May and mid-September to the beginning of November. There are however also trekking routes that are better suited to Summer or Winter. Earlier in the year the light is sharper but the nights are very cold. In autumn, after the rainy season, the skies clear and the leaves begin to turn yellow. Between mid-June and mid-September one should expect regular rainfall.
