The Hidden Kingdom Trekking

The Hidden Kingdom Trekking-Bhutan

Stretching 26 days, the Hidden Kingdom trek is one of our longest Bhutanese treks, and one, which we have been successfully running every year since 1988. On this trek, our adventurers will experience everything from the fantastic mountain ranges in the Himalayas, to fascinating villages, monasteries and fortresses, and all in an area which is culturally unique, and unlike any other in the Himalaya. The trek starts from Paro, where we set off towards the Tibetan border into the north western corner of the Bhutanese Mountains. It takes us beneath Bhutan’s second highest mountain, Chomolhari (7,314m), and Jichu Drake (6,858m), first climbed during a British-Indian expedition in 1988. During the trek, you may see bears, eagles, herds of ‘blue sheep’, and what the locals call a ‘Dredmo’, the elusive Yeti - a large, hairy man-like creature who roams the nearby hillsides. On the first day and a half of the trek, we pass through many alpine and semi-tropical forests, where we’ll see a wealth of plants, flowers, and many varieties of small birds. As we travel further, the main villages in the area are Gasa, Laya, and Lingshi, occupied by the mountain tribes, dressed in yak wool and conical, bamboo hats.

To reach the Hidden Kingdom, we cross many passes up to a staggering 5,000 m high and travel over a distance of 150 miles. However, during the trip, we’ll have many timely intervals and rest days, including a stay near the hot springs of Gasa. The Hidden Kingdom trek has proved to be very popular throughout the years and is undoubtedly one of the finest trips throughout the whole Himalayas.
