Overview

Book
Starting in the original Bhutanese capital of Punakha, this superb new trekking holiday begins by following the ancient trading route to Thimphu over the Sinchu La (3530m). Until the road building programme of the late 20th century, the only access between the valleys of Punakha and Thimphu was across the ridges and passes connecting these two important valleys. The second section of our trek takes us up and across the Dagala range, including the Laba Chung Laptsa (4520m) from where we will have a stunning perspective on the Eastern Himalaya and then traverses the Valley of a Thousand Lakes, before we end our holiday in the modern capital of Bhutan, Thimphu. Very few visitors to Bhutan have followed this route and when founder Glenn Rowley made this trek in November 2016, he saw no one else at all. Glenns opinion of the trek: Ive completed many short treks in the Himalaya but the view from the Dagala range, which reaches from Chomolhari (7314m) in the west to Gangkar Puensum (7570m) in the east, is one of the best in Bhutan, you can literally see every peak. The lack of other trekkers, pristine campsites, the feeling of remoteness whilst being only a few days away from civilisation, the beautiful Dzongs, and contact with welcoming Bhutanese people, made this trip extra special for me.

BOOK EARLY for BHUTAN! With only two airlines operating flights into Paro from Kathmandu, seats are limited and in high demand. Book early to guarantee your place on your chosen departure. We strongly advise booking a year in advance where possible.
