Experience Bhutan Trekking  with us.

Bhutan  trekking routes are some of the best  in the world. Bhutan has always fascinated the insatiate traveler with its rugged beauty, a living Buddhist culture, and friendly people. From relatively easy 2-day Bumdra trek  to the formidable 24-day Snowman trek route, the country offers its unique geography to the thirst of those with tough legs and sinewy guts. A cross-country trek will take you through the extreme bounties of nature: thick evergreen forests, undulating hills and vertical cliffs, bald and snowcapped mountain tops, deep ravines and gorges, gentle valleys and foothills.

Most trekking routes start at the temperate region and run through alpine regions covering a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions. We have a team of experienced and highly skilled trekking guides. Experience and skills are indeed essential for anyone daring to trek in Bhutan because most high-altitude routes are not well-defined trails, and therefore, only a seasoned guide can lead the trekker(s).

We have intimate knowledge of the trekking routes and skills of a seasoned trekker. We value our sixth sense while traversing the challenges of a real trek.
Yak stresses on green trekking as part of responsible tourism. This means we hike with zero damage to the natural environment. We just leave the footprints and nothing else. Our Trekking Team cleans the camp sites just we set out for the next destination.

Our Clients’ Feedback on Bhutan Trekking

Dear Sithar.

All is well and we are safely home.

Many thanks for good treks. Bhutan trek with Yak Holidays was excellent. Sithar Tamang is a good manager-owner, very helpful, insightful and has good experience, Bhutan and with Jomohari trek and other treks, as well.

Our guide, Nima Wangchuk Sherpa, was expert. Nima guided us with skill that comes only from many years experiences.  Nima is the recommended guide.

By the way, Nima has 5 Snowman Treks with 3 successful completed Snowman treks with clients.  (trekkers, my age have completed Snowman trek with Nima.) We have good memories of Nima as our trekking guide, as well as Cultural tours guide.

For Cultural Tours:  Nima knows all things, Cultural. He took us to the Thimphu Thechu before our trek, (thanks Sithar) Jomolhari festival on trek. We visited Dzong after Dzong before and after including the National Memorial Chorten, Giant Buddha above Thimphu, Paper factory, Traditional Medicine Institute, Takin Zoo, Arts and Crafts, and many other visits as well. Nima is wonderful cultural guide. He knows so much and can answer all questions.

Our itinerary was much the same as planned…. except for 1st day….we went to Thimphu Festival (Tshechu). Then, back to Tiger’s Nest for a morning hike then, start of Jomolhai trek at 3/4 way down road from the old Dzong.

All went well at Tiger’s Nest and on first part of trek for most of us…… on our way up through forest and jungle, it was very nice easy trek to Tantanka Camp for me, as it was for most of us.

Clients’-Feedback-on-Bhutan-TrekkingOur Trekking Story:

“One,” of our trekkers had trouble climbing on the trail and decided to leave the trek after the 1st “strenuous” day.  The rest of us continued on up to Jomolhari Base Camp, a very easy walk, where we enjoyed, and hot shower. (Wonderful HOT SHOWER).  Jomolhari BC is a very beautiful place with the best view of Jomolhari Mt… @13k ft.. I took much videos and Photos of this very wonderful Place.

Next day, I climbed to a high-yak pasture at 14.5k+ with view of Jhhicu Dake Peak, and more… Then went back down to the Jomolhari Mountain Festivel, a very interesting event….It was 2 days and we saw much of it while we were in the Jomolhari.

Next few days, on trek up…. each successive day, we climbed a little higher to a pass and, descended to a camp in valley below at lower elevation. Each day, about 10:30 we were given juice and some snack. At approx noon to 12:30, hot lunch was served along the trail with hot tea, plates, knives, forks, spoons, napkins, everything…very special meal (several helpings) Each evening, our cook, Leki, prepared a delicious dinner. Each dinner was different from any prior nights’ dinner.

The last night on our trek, a campfire was built by porters and guides, very special for us to enjoy, big-Warm-campfire. Next morning, coals were still warm. We enjoyed, good campfire, good porters, good tents, good journey, beautiful scenery, good friendships, good hiking together, beautiful Bhutanese People, good togetherness + friendship, each person friends, good food, great guide, great cook.

Just to let you know a pleasant experience, Bhutan. Thanks

Best wishes, Thank You All… very much
