Bumthang Cultural Trek

Bumthang Trekl 1The idea of promoting Bumthang Cultural Trek is to experience hikes through the countryside. We drive to Bhutan enjoying several cultural sights of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey Gompa and Trongsa. The nights can be shortened if we take domestic flight back to Paro. Many visitors enjoy this trek because its not strenuous. There are farm roads through most villages that allow trekkers to switch to cultural tours any time. Bumthang Cultural trek can be 5 nights if we take the classic one. However, for those wishing to reduce the nights can do the trek in 2 or 3 nights.
