Trekking in Bhutan

Bhutan is situated in the Eastern Himalayas to the East of Nepal, the Indian State of Sikkim, and the Southern Border of China. The kingdom has been independent throughout its history, building on a unique cultural base of Buddhism, and the pursuit of Gross National Happiness. It opened its doors to the modern world in the early 1960’s, and it is only very recently that today’s tourism has begun to be seen in what many call The Last Shangrila. The majesty of the snow laden Himalayan Mountain, rising abruptly from the plains of the Indian subcontinent, remains a spectacular site that has few parallels.

Bumthang Owl Trek

Bumthang Owl Trek

The Bumthang Owl Trek offers an invigorating experience of the culture and environment of the country. It is a moderate 3 day hiking route which starts from Menchugang and ends in Jakar Dzong. The trail has an abundance of flora and fauna, and the panoramic views of the valleys beneath the hill tops and the Himalayas spread over a broad horizon would be an experience that one shall cherish for a lifetime. This trek could be a substitute for the Bumthang Cultural Trek that has been deteriorated to a great degree by the farm road constructions.

On this trek you have the opportunity to see:
-Village life in a very big village like Dhur
-The virgin temperate forest of blue pine, hemlock, fir, spruce, juniper with undergrowth of bamboo spices, rhododendrons, birch, maple, chestnut and many 
 others. In spring the rhododendrons flowers are in bloom that beautifies the whole trek route.
-The valley views and the Himalayan snow capped mountains in the north.
-Birds of different spices, among them the big monal pheasants can be sighted around the second camp and Tharpaling area during mornings and evenings.
-The Monastry life in Tharpaling, Choedak and Zhambala are yet very interesting.

Nabji-Korphu -based Nature Tourism Trek

Nabji-Korphu Community-based Nature Tourism Trek

Open from October up to the end of March. The trail goes through the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park located in central Bhutan, in an ecological rich environment. The park is also home to several cultural rich agricultural villages. The trail is a six-day low-altitude trek (between 693 m./23,100 ft and 1,636 m./5,453 ft) through six different villages located inside the park. Starting point Riotala (1,060 m./3,533 ft) and final destination Tongtongphey (1,061 m./3,537 ft) are two small villages along the Trongsa-Zhemgang road, situated in the buffer area of the park at the east side of the Mangde Chhu (river). On this trek, you will possibly see the Golden Langur (Trachypithecus geei), one of the rarest primates, which can only be found in Bhutan and neighbouring Assam. Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park is also home to the endangered Rufous-necked Hornbill (Aceros nepalensis). In addition to this, the trail is a superb place for birding (common mynas, blue-fronted redstarts, long-tailed shrikes and Eurasian sparrows, to name just a few common species, but spotted are also serpent eagle, golden-throated barbet, and the yellow-bellied flowerpecker) and has a wide variety of plants and flowers found in this Himalayan area (from Chirpine, broad-leaved trees and Bamboo, to Rhododendrons and wild Orchids). Besides the natural beauty of the area, the area also contains cultural history, witnessed among others by the presence of a commemorative pillar in the temple of Nabji. The pillar symbolises the occasion that peace was negotiated between the two kings (King Nauche from India and King Sindu from Bhutan) intermediated by Guru Rimpoche in the eight century. Along the six day trail more traces of Guru Rimpoche’s presence during his visit to Bhutan in the 8th century can be found.

The last two days of the trek will go through the homeland of the Monpa people. The small traditional villages of the Monpa community are scattered on the slope overlooking Mangde Chhu. The Monpas are thought to be the first settlers in Bhutan, the Mangde Chhu valley representing one of the earliest areas of settlement in Bhutan. The Monpas practice a mix of animistic shamanism and Buddhism. Monpa refers to “the people of darkness” referring to their isolated position in the past. In general term Mon refers to people without religion that symbolizes period before the advent of Buddhism in Bhutan. They were originally hunters and food gatherers and their culture, tradition and practices are intrinsically linked to the forest around them. They are traditionally cane weavers and bamboo crafters, using their skills for house construction, making baskets and other household items.

Community Tourism 
The Nabji Trail supports the park management in their efforts to conserve nature by creating more awareness on natural and environmental issues, through tourism awareness programmes and by introducing socio-economic benefits. Specific measures are put in place to maximise socio-economic benefits and minimize negative impacts from tourism development to support the livelihood of the local community in the area and to create more awareness on natural, environmental, and cultural issues.

Facilities provided
Raven Tours and Treks will offer a service package that includes campsite, porters, guides and cooks. Others services and products offered by us are a cultural program, handicraft made out of cane and bamboo, vegetables and firewood. The entire campsite will have more or less the same facilities such as camping ground, toilets, shower, kitchen and a mini theatre (two campsites) for cultural program.

Rodungla Trek

Rodungla Trek

This route was the most important trade route to eastern Bhutan till the road was built. Nowadays hardly anybody, except some ardent trekkers, travels along this route anymore. The route can also be seen as an extension of the Snowman Trek ending in Bumthang. The combination of the two of them, Snowman and Rodung La trek, connects the country from the west (Paro) to the far East (Trashi Yangtse). Although the trek does not lead into really high altitude, it is tough and involves long steep descents or ascents, depending on the side you start the trek. Definitely one of the harder treks in Bhutan!

Snowman Trek

Snowman Trek

The Snowman Trek is an extension of the beautiful Laya Gasa Trek, and leads from Laya into high altitudes of the Bhutanese Himalayas. It takes tough and enduring trekkers into the Lunana region and further on to Gangkhar Puensum and Bumthang or down to Sephu in Trongsa district, depending on which route you choose. The Snowman trek leads through the most remote areas up to very high altitudes. Trekkers have to camp in altitudes above 5,000m more than once, and depending on the seasonal temperatures, the camps are sometimes on snow.
