Trip Overview

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 nine 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.

Majestic Himalayas, magnificent fortress and vibrant biodiversity greeted me the very moment i landed on the Bhutanese soil. My trip to Bhutan is a casket of memories that i will cherish in my life. My tour of Bhutan was supplemented with utmost hospitality and case by my agent.they took intensive care to arrange my lodging and my guide made sure to make me comfortable and worthwhile in an alien world.
Although Bhutan is progressing in her developmental tasks,the kind of love for their environment and culture was what took me aback.I visited different places like Thimphu, Paro and Punakha and everywhere I went, I was entertained by the beauty of the nature;green trees and tall mountains are always there by one's side to reassure that love of mother nature is always there for us.And one can feel that love,every time one breathes in,I could feel it.
There was something totally different in the air,I don't know how to describe it but it was rejuvenating. I was also enthralled to see the unique tradition and culture of Bhutan and I really liked their arts and crafts.I never knew there were so many subtle meanings behind every piece of art. To the eyes that are accustomed in seeing sky scrapers and metros.A visit to this country will make one realize what one is missing amidst head on civilization.
I will always be grateful to my agent,World Tour Plan and my guide for making my trip more than just a mere visit but a rich experience to cherish forever.It is a gift that I want to present my family with a next visit to this land of happiness.


The tour has included most of the important landmarks to know about Bhutan and its culture in short period of time. I enjoyed my solo trip in Bhutan. My tour guide Chencho has excellent knowledge about Buddhism, the monasteries and the history of Bhutan. He was also very accommodating and responsible guide. The driver, Benzay kept the car clean and was also very pleasant and funny.

Fantastic tour and exceptional guide and driver. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Both went out of their way to ensure our happiness and safety. When we got snowed in at Bumthang they did everything in the power to ensure we got back to Paro to meet our international connections.

I had a fruitful holidays (11 days 10 nights). for the agency, the application procedure was really smooth with prompt replies. they are willing to discuss the itinerary to suit your needs for the tour guide named Chencho, he is responsible, knowledgeable and experienced, always put safety the first priority.
