The power and beauty of the mountains
is more impressive on foot than from any vehicle. Whether
you take a two night trek around the Bumthang valley
or take the eight day trek to the base of Mt. Chomolhari,
the views, villages, people and experience will be unparalleled.
Trekking during April and May in the Himalayas brings
the deep reds and oranges of the rhododendron blossom.
Earlier in the year the light is sharper but the nights
are very cold. In autumn, after the rainy season, the
skies clear and leaves begin to turn yellow.
We at International Treks & Tours are committed
to offer very personal and efficient services especially
for the trekkers are accompanied by a guide, a cook
and some experienced staff. Provisions and luggage are
carried by mountain horses and at high altitudes by
Yaks. With the surest footing, they lead trekking groups
across the passes.
The horseman and cook will usually run ahead during
a trekking day. They will have prepared a packed lunch
and will go on to the night’s resting place to
set up camp. On your arrival at the campsite nothing
will taste better than being greeted with a hot cup
of tea and biscuits.
Treks vary from short three day walks across low altitudes
to the three weeks Snowman trek that covers 356 kms.
The northern paths climb as high as 5,50m and should
be attempted by strong, experienced walkers. Our Guides
are trained to look out for altitude sickness and other
ailments that can affect trekkers. They are expert walkers
who have been trained as trekking guides and follow
routes that have been walked for centuries.
