Start and end in Paro, the Haa Valley Walk trip is a guided trekking tour that takes 9 days. You will travel through Thimphu, Paro, Sagala and 3 other destinations in Bhutan. Haa Valley Walk is a small group trip which includes accommodation, meals and others.

Follow the Haa Valley Rice Planter's Trail on this cultural odyssey. If you are looking for a short and gentle walk in Bhutan combined with some well planned sightseeing, then look no further. We start with the magnificent Taktsang Monastery before heading out to the Haa Valley, where we commence a superb 3 day trek, also known as “The Haa Planters’ Trail”. This ancient path was used by rice planters from the Haa Valley on their way to Paro during the rice planting season. Although relatively short and reaching modest altitudes, it is a wonderful walk that delivers in all ways - great views, dramatic scenery, cultural interaction and Bhutan's famous rhododendron forests which bloom each spring from mid March to June. Our cultural journey of discovery through this remarkable Buddhist kingdom continues with visits to Wangduephodrang, Thimphu and the ancient capital of Punakha and the impressive Punakha Dzong, and gain a fascinating insight into this extraordinary country.

“Highly recommended for travellers seeking a short trek with cultural insights and opportunity to explore historic sites. The Haa Valley is unspoilt and devoid of other trekkers so is truly special, only having been opened to tourists recently. The villages are traditional and the locals very welcoming.”

“My experience of World Expeditions is a that it is a very professional company. I went on one of the hiking trips to Bhutan, and the pre-departure information, guides, accommodation and attention to the client's safety and in-country experience were all excellent. I'm impressed with the Responsible Travel outlook and I am considering using them for future trips I plan to make in Asia.”
