9 Days Punakha Trek

Bhutan, known to her people as ‘Druk Yul’ (Land of the Thunder Dragon) has never failed to mesmerized her visitors. She is as much known for her awesome landscapes and architecture, as for her rich and colourful cultural heritage. Land-locked and surrounded by the Himalayan mountain range, the awe-inspiring valleys and mountain passes, sprawling glaciers, stupendous waterfalls, crystal lakes, deep gorges and vast undulating flower-studded meadows will take anyone’s breath away and offers great opportunity for trekking.

This 9-day trip covers a pleasant 3 days' short trek with leisurely walks over the hills from Dechencholing to Punakha. The low altitude makes it a relatively easy trek, pretty at all seasons.
