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.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      I don't think so my words can do enough justice to share my experience with travel triangle and specially with Bhutan INC. It was my father's dream to travel Bhutan with the family and this was the first time we contact some agency to arrange our trip generally we have planned our all trips by our self only. i was just trying to provide them a little luxury this time. Travel Triangle: They have provided us so many agencies who can fulfill our requirements and those who can fit into our budget. No inconvenience at all. I was in contact with Varun Sahani. He treated us so well. Bhutan INC : It was indeed one of the most beautiful experience with Bhutan INC. They exactly planned our trip the way we want. People from Bhutan inc are so helpful and nice to us. We first came in contact with khini who understand our requirements, expectations from this trip and guided us so well before and during the trip. Navin(tour guide) and Karma uncle(Drive). These two person have performed great role to make this trip like never before for us. Navin has some remarkable abilities as a tour guide. he was actually love his profession. As a guide he understood our life style first and treated us the same way like he is one of us. He never allow us to get bored. He had strong bonding with all of us at the end of the tour. We are still in touch and share greetings to each other. Thanks Navin for make this tour like never before. Karma Uncle : He is a gem as a person. So calm, composed and damn punctual and always keep smile on his face.He kept vehicle always neat and clean all the time. He gifted his phone to us as a memory of him. Bhutan is beautiful because of the person like him. At the end Hotels were good all over the trip . Hotel from Punakha (Pemakarpoo) and Phobjikha (Pemba farm house) are my personally favorite. vehicle (Toyota Haice) was perfect for our family. At the end, Thanks Bhutan, Bhutan INC and Travel triangle.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      Hotels provided were okay but all the Hotels were given at remote areas, away from the main town. Cab & Driver were okay but we had to pass through very anxious moments to get their details in time (especially for our pick up from Bagdogra). Further, we were brought from Thimpu to Phuentsholing in a Wagon R, while as per agreement, the Cab should have been either a Creta or Tucson in Bhutan. The services of Travel Agent were far below from expectations. Travel Triangle representative Ishveer Kaur was just unapproachable over mail or phone (emails to her returned undelivered and phone remain unanswered). The WhatsApp group created by Himavat Destination was highly irresponsive as all our queries in the group remained unanswered. Even we had to face immence anxiety and hardships in getting Permit at Phuentsholing since the representative of Himavat Destination looked ineffective and helpless. Had we not taken that much of trouble ourselves on 7th of October, 2019, our entire trip of Bhutan might be in doldrums since next three days the Immigration office at Bhutanwas closed on account of Festival. The only silverlining we found in Ms RINA THAPA, our Tour Coordinator from Himavat Destination stationed in Siliguri, who inspite of being on Medical leave, came for our rescue whenever we landed into problem and as & when things came to her knowledge. I can very well say that we could complete our Bhutan only due to her. Our best memories of the Trip were on a day in Paro, when we visited Chelela Pass and a day in Thimpu, when we visited Buddha Point, Hindu Temple and Tashichhoedzong (the seat of Government which houses Secretariat).

    • Trip to Bhutan

      I see them (travel trainagle) as just mediator website with no/little knowledge on the destination you are choosing. All that they give you is their authorized vendors ( local travel agent partners) whom you can work with and adjust your trip accordinly. So if you are frequent travellers and you know the tips you could do it better by yourself. the local agent ( Backyard bhutan ) was very good and patient with all my question and set the plan to meet my expectation , but there is nothing much that travel traingle did when other vendors has not given any response.

      AD Tours and travels is a good agency. They have got the best hotels for us and the vehicle provided was also comfortable. We only missed the Thimphu festival which was the main reason for our trip to plan on those dates. Apart from this all went good.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      Our trip to Bhutan was not so peaceful . Choosing Travel Heights as our tour operator was a mistake. They sent a fake confirmation of hotel bookings in the form of voucher and later changed the hotels when we actually reached the place. We had to follow up alot for everything. Vey poor management and no co-ordination between operator and Travel Heights. All the interaction was with a lady called Sufi from Travel Heights who pestured me continuously for 4 days to pay the last installment even before the due date mentioned in the Travel triangle. I dont recommend Travel Heights to anyone. And i request Travel traingle to completely remove Travel Heights from their website. Despite all the bad situations which we encountered we had enjoyed our trip because of the beautiful nature of Bhutan.
