BHUTAN | TRONGSA VILLAGE TREK SMALL GROUP EXPEDITION
FARMING & DANCING WITH THE LOCALS OF CENTRAL BHUTAN
This is a small-group itinerary which combines a 4-day cultural immersion glamping trek in Trongsa, a district in Central Bhutan, with the iconic highlights of Paro and Punakha valleys.
The trek will take you to the heart of the country – Trongsa Valley. Here, we will travel deep into the Mangde Chhu River Basin, staying in villages nestled high above the banks of the river. Experience life in the agricultural community and learn about their way of life through interaction with the villagers over a warm cup of homemade suja (butter tea) or ara (home-brewed alcohol made from grains). Leaving Trongsa Valley, this itinerary will continue to the subtropical valleys of Punakha and the pine forests of Paro, and our local guide will fill your imagination of stories of Buddhist saints, heroes and demons as you visit iconic highlights of Bhutan.
This expedition is for the trekker who is looking to explore the spectacular villages of Bhutan off the beaten path, without great physical exertion.
