The first timers, the greenhorns may have myriad expectations about trekking in Bhutan as to how it’s going to be, especially in a high country in the Himalayas. The treks in Bhutan are always uphill or conversely downhill, never straight. Plus the cold temperatures and ever changing environs around you. But the picturesque and pristine surroundings are priceless & make you experience the treks in a more sort of blended exuberance. And the thrill factor along with a sense of ultimate satisfaction is always there awaiting.

A short or a grueling trek doesn’t really matter because most treks in Bhutan are high altitude ones. So here is a list of how to prepare your trek to Bhutan.

  • Any form of exercise like swimming, running, cycling and walking at home will be an added bonus.
  • Be adventurous.
  • Train to sleep well and in good amounts.
  • Drink lots of water or fluid to stay hydrated.
