Bhutan Adventure Guide

Behind the calm and serene ambiance that Bhutan is so well-known for, there is a crazy wild side of the country too that few people know about. When the monasteries and temples and historical sites are all done and dusted with, the majestic mountains and green valleys are destinations for the best Bhutan adventure tours. The land of the Thunder Dragons is a paradise for the adrenaline junkies, offering one adventure opportunities after the other.

Here is a list of the exciting adventure sports in Bhutan that one can participate in:

1. Trekking

Trekking in Bhutan is the best adventure activities that the country has to offer. The passes and trails through the snow-crested mountains are gorgeous in their own rights. Whether one gets to summit the trek or not, the journey itself is worth all the time and effort – so brilliant is the ambiance along the trekking routes in Bhutan. However, two of these routes have the most challenging yet breathtaking experience – the Jomolhari trek and the climb of Dochula Pass. The former one takes the trekkers through Jigme Dorji National Park to the summit with a spectacular view of the majestic Jomolhari peak (7326 m). Dochula Pass takes them to 10,000 m above sea level. The entire route is painted with 108 chortens and colorful Buddhist flags fluttering against the snow-white crests of Himalayas. Some other spine-chilling trek routes are Druk Path, Snowman, Laya Gasa, Dagala Thousand Lakes, Nabji Korphu and Phobjikha Valley Birdwatching treks to enjoy the clusters of rare, black-necked cranes.

2. Paragliding

Comparatively a new adventure in Bhutan, paragliding is catching on fast enough. The best places for paragliding in Bhutan are Phobjikha, Bumthang, and Ura – the highest valley in the country. There are licensed agencies with certified pilots who take the gliders on a lifetime of experience over the lush green valleys and the high peaks of the snowy Himalayas.

3. Whitewater rafting and kayaking

Bhutan adventure is not complete without participating in water rafting and kayaking. The craters in Paro and Punakha valley are the perfect places for kayaking. Rivers like Paro Chhu, Upper Pho Chhu, Mangde Chhu and Mo Chuu flow with such force and vivacity that at times the rafting seems too difficult to manoeuvre. These adventure activities in Bhutan are certainly not for the weak-hearted. But the rivers are calmer in certain places, where the scenery around can be enjoyed to the heart’s content.

4. Cycling

The alpine roads of the country are great for Bhutan cycling. Slower than the rushing cars but much faster than walking, cycling allows the wanders to truly explore the beauty of the pine and firs, the lush green meadows and the hidden quarters of the Bhutan mountains. Cyclists must remember to wear the proper gear for safety reasons. As soon as the helmet is on the head and the right shoes are on feet, paddling down the road will open up new and unexplored worlds. Cycling routes range from smooth and paved roads of the countryside to the rocky and treacherous terrains of the hilly areas.

5. Rock Climbing

Rock Climbing is the ultimate end-game for adventure enthusiasts. Bungee jumping in Bhutan being a no-go because of the rules, this is as best as it gets when it comes to adventure. There are 13 exciting roots for all levels on the Nose, a climbing rock surface near Thimphu. The climbs are conducted by Vertical Bhutan Climbing Club.

6. Fishing in Bhutan

From large rivers to crystal-clear lakes, Bhutan has several spots for this recreational activity. The Khaling River in Eastern Bhutan is known for catfish and brown trout. Golden Mahseer fishing season in Bhutan is from March through May and September through November.  

7. Hiking in Bhutan

For those looking for challenging activities, hiking in Bhutan offers splendid rewards. The mountainous region dotted with religious monuments is a hiker’s heaven. The six-day Druk Path Trek passes through pristine lakes, pine forests, and ancient religious sites. Jomolhari Laya Gasa Trek, Jomolhari Trek and Loop, and Nabji Korphu Trek are some of the popular routes for hiking in Bhutan.

      Valley Tours has planned the tour well. From starting in phone Suku madam has understood the needs well and designed package as discussed. At Pheuntsholing , Ashish assisted us well for visa immigration and then after we went for Thimphu and Paro . Vehicle was Toyota Avance which was arranged against Creta/Innova Driver Mr Wangchuk is very humble and good person very polite feel good with him. He is not a professional guide but being a local he has good knowledge of area and is a gem of a person. Hotel Thimphu best Paro Good (Power cut for a Hour) Pheuntsholing okay Valley was readily available for any issues in the trip and are friendly. Bhutanese Charge for drinking water everywhere even in hotels. Plan easy don't try covering too much.

      While we were choosing agent. there was some doubt in air while looking at some of older reviews. Though we initiated the process, the best part we like about is responsiveness, flexibility, listening ability and quick turnaround as major plus of Mr. Damber Gurung. It was 12 nights 13 days trip(18-30th March, 2019). The whole itinerary was as per us, how we wanted; with each and every thing well defined. we are kind of people who define what we want to do and choose on basis who can fulfill the requirement best. Now starting with trip all tickets, cab and hotel booking were done well in advance in our choice of hotels; also all vouchers shared as per agreed timeline. Now coming to parts of the tour. Hotels, all were amazing (Tashi Nagmey(Paro), Ramada Valley(Thimphu), Drubchu resort(Punakha), Hotel Dewachen(Phubjika), Bumthang(Jakar Village lodge)) we got complimentary upgrade in Paro and Thimphu. Cab, we got SUV, with an amazing driver and gem of person Mr. Gyadhen Jamtsho, a clear hearted man who try to ensure that you are happy. Now some parts where traveler needs to take a lead like please check the timings of all dzongs & Lakhangs. Also check on what attire needs to worn. Kindly note that if you are travelling ahead of Thimphu towards Punakha, Phobjika and Bhumthang, road permit to be taken from Thimphu. Better you can visit with driver so that correct information can be given in one go. There is one caution that in some of lakhang and dzongs they will ask specifically for guide, though Indian's don't need to have a guide as a necessity. In this please ask your driver to keep their traditional dress with him and should accompany you to avoid these kind of situations, as in that case they generally don't ask much. Tip: On standard itinerary please check what all places you want to visit and timings. Also check what places are good to eat, as you can eat in evening outside and come to hotel later. In Tashi Namgey: Take rooms on 1st floor like 117, also hotel got a good massage center. Ramada Valley: Take rooms having river view.

      Super thanks for Bhutan INC. I had made quite a few alterations before and during the trip. We were in excellent hands of Guide Kharka and driver Akash. Kharka accompanied us everywhere and explained in great detail about the rich cultural heritage. He was sought after even by outside groups whose guides were no able to respond to some questions. Bhutan needs a guided tour. I high;y recommend Bhutan INC
