Description of Druk Path Trekking holiday in Bhutan

A week long Bhutan trekking tour following the Druk Path which takes you along an ancient trading route over high mountain passes, connecting the Paro and Thimpu Valleys. An eight day walking odyssey, you will walk through the country’s blue pine forests, rhododendron and juniper filled landscapes, to alpine lakes such as Jimilangtsho and Jimiling. Camping along the way, you will also get the chance to visit some of the country’s ancient monasteries, fortresses and traditional villages.

Even though you will be hiking at elevations of between 2400-4200m, the actual trekking is relatively easy, with magnificent views along the way out to the likes of Mt. Gangkar Puensum, the highest peak in the world not to have been summited.

The best times go hiking on the Druk Path Trek are March-June or September-November. This trip also includes a day to explore the city of Paro where you will stay in a hotel for two nights. The rest of the trip will be camping along the Druk Path, with your final night in a Paro hotel too.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The scenery and spirituality of Bhutan is unique and a once in a lifetime experience for my family.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Even in late spring weather was unpredictable. I would be trekking with shorts and a tee shirt in the morning, long pants and fleece in afternoon and wishing for ski gear in the evening before going to bed.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Sure, every dollar spent in Bhutan on environmental friendly tourism allows the country to stay the path in rejecting other business opportunities that are not eco friendly.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Once in a lifetime. A long way from the US but worth it.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

The environment has always been our major concern. We try our best to implement the policy of environmental conservation on every service and tour.

We have also conducted various plantation and river cleansing campaigns, in order to contribute to environmental conservation.

Explanations are given during any trekking tours of how to conserve scarce fuel resources, as well as reducing litter & waste production (for example by not ordering numerous different items from trekking lodge menus, and by treating water rather than buying numerous mineral water bottles).

We have recycling information booklets we provide to every client on arrival wherever possible. We do not produce a glossy brochure, concentrating on a comprehensive website, and providing as much information to our travelers as possible electronically, reducing the use of paper and inks.

In the field, guides, porters and clients are all oriented in responsible travel. A zero litter policy is in place so that it minimizes wastage in the region.

People

Our Company ensures that the journeys we take benefit the local people and their surrounding as much as possible and any potential negative impacts at the destinations are minimized. We are dedicated to giving something back to the local community.

We understand and appreciate the hard work the guides and porters perform. Therefore we treat and obey the following Guide and Porter Policy to ensure the conditions for our guides and porters are of a humane standard. We work towards eliminating avoidable illness, injury and death.

All our staff are from local communities. Our guides are English speaking and have years of experience as they live locally. Each guide comes fully equipped and supported by us, having obtained the training in the related tourism sectors including Department of Tourism, Guide Association of Bhutan and Association of Bhutanese Tour Operators.

We also organize a small donation foundation where the travelers can also help the locals by supporting one student by giving educational materials such as pencils, crayons, books and paper etc.
