Trek Highlights

Bhutan often amazes visitors from industrialized countries. This small kingdom, hidden in the Eastern Himalaya, is so traditional, so ancient and so completely culturally intact that it can seem almost unreal.

Its pastoral valleys are still dominated by 16th century monasteries where red-robed lamas preside over the events of everyday life. In high mountain valleys, the main occupation is still yak herding. Few roads penetrate the country.

The Bhutanese Government strictly restricts tourism to preserve the traditional ways, and to travel through this kingdom is a privilege and a chance to the peaceful way of life.

One of the most popular high altitude treks in the region is a seven day trip starting from Paro valley to Thimpu through north - west Bhutan, which provides beautiful views of the high Himalayan ranges. It takes trekkers along the Pachu river to the base camp of mountain Chomalhari (23,997 ft) and then to Lingshi in the remote and wild world of the yak herders.

Col. N. Kumar, leader of first successful expedition to Chomalhari that was sponsored by the king of Bhutan, will be organizing this trek.
