HIGHLIGHTS
  • Enjoy the most popular and stunning nature trek of Bhutan.
  • Visit Taktshang (Tiger Nest) Monastery, one of the greatest site in the country.
  • See what makes Bhutan the happiest country on the planet.
Visitors were not allowed on the Druk route for a long time to keep them away from the Tibetan troops, but after a period of peace, this stunning trek has finally opened up for visitors, its unique culture, landscapes and beauty primed for exploration.

The Druk Path has great cultural significance, its high ridges offering windy conditions for most parts of the year, classic mountains full of charming rhododendrons, and historically preserved villages offering a peek into an ancient way of life. The clear and breathtaking views of the Himalayas can also be a mesmerizing experience.

The Druk (Dragon) Path trek is ideal for those interested in seeing Bhutan's rich culture and its stunning Himalayan vistas without committing to one of the more strenuous treks. This trek provides significant contact with the landscape and culture of this magical kingdom and is designed to maximize exposure to the countryside and provide views of Bhutan's most spectacular mountain scenery.

“The Tigers nest was a super start to this holiday and must not be missed. There followed a tour of the Pato valley. The a fine fine hike with four nights in tents from Paro to Thimphu. Well organised with a guide who was great for Bhutanese culture and who had very good English. Good food and we were looked after well. Scenery is not as spectacular as in Nepal but it is a beautiful area. We reached 4200 m and it snowed on s one night but we were warm enough. After the trek we spent time being driven to various wonderful cultural sites and over a pass into a further valley. The Dzongs and temples were superb. A memorable trip.”
