More than 130,000 foreign visitors head to Bhutan each year to discover this amazing country for themselves. As a result, popular destinations can get pretty crowded.
Hiking gives you the option to visit some of these more crowded areas, but then escape back into the wilderness afterwards. Either way, try and see some of the most iconic landmarks along the way, if you can.
The Ancient Ruin of Drukgyel Dzong,Bumdeling Wildlife Sanctuary, five Dziong religious sites, Jigme Dorji National Park Royal Manas National Park, Sacred Sites associated with Phajo Drugom Zhigpo and his descendants, Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary and Tamzhing Monastery are among the most popular tourist destinations.
Keep in mind to clean up after yourself and do as much ‘leave no trace’ camping and hiking as possible. Bhutan is one of the most environmentally aware countries in the world and you don’t want to be an ungracious guest.
Bhutan enjoys quite a warm climate throughout the year. The best time to visit is during the dry season, which runs from autumn to spring. During this time of year, average daily temperatures range from 12ºC to 20ºC. It is also generally quite humid during this time of year, but rain is not frequent.
Any trip to Bhutan begins with a flight into Paro International Airport (PBH). Direct flights are offered here from most major Indian airports, Singapore and Hong Kong. Guides will generally arrange to meet you at the airport and transport you to the start of the trip.
