This trip takes us on a journey along an ancient, high-level, trade route in a country visited by only a lucky few. We trek through splendid rhododendron forests, past yak herder settlements, across several passes and camp beside clear, blue, mountain lakes with spectacular views of the peaks which border Tibet. We also experience Bhutan’s fascinating culture and its colourful festivals with masked dances and general joviality. Note that different departures follow different itineraries.
