Lover of travel on foot? Go on an adventure with an incredible trekking in Bhutan!

A wonderful Trekking in Bhutan of moderate difficulty to discover a country still little explored by international tourism. A place immersed in the myths and legends of the Buddhist religion and very far from all that is western and European. Western Bhutan, the land of the Drukpas , is home to the oldest and most spectacular dzong in the kingdom which are perched on top of the hills to control the small rural villages below. You will find yourself immersed in the landscape of dense forests and towering mountains, in the eastern part of the Himalayan range. Visiting Bhutan will allow you to live a wonderful adventure. Definitely a magnificent destination for travel on foot!

The trekking area is the Phobjikha valley at 3000 meters above sea level, one of the glacial valleys of Bhutan.

Here, on the western slopes of the Black Mountains, flocks of black-necked cranes from Tibet come to winter, making this valley one of the most important protected areas in the country.
