People ask me – “Why go to Bhutan?”
Every trip doesn’t have to involve carrying heavy packs and doing all the work ourselves. Once in a while, it’s nice to just go trekking. With our experienced Sherpa and Bhutanese crew, the team members can relax a bit and simply concentrate on enjoying the people, the country and the experience. No need to set up tents, carry heavy loads and worry about camp chores such as cooking and cleaning. Members carry only what’s needed for any given day. What a pleasure.
Additionally, treks like the one we do in Bhutan give us an opportunity to share the experience with a spouse, friend, son or daughter who may not have the mountaineering skills required for many more involved trips. Add to all this the fact that a country like Bhutan sees a much smaller number of tourists than many other locations. And talk about exotic, I can’t think of many locals higher on the ‘exotic’ scale than Bhutan. Add it all up and you’ve got the makings for a great adventure (read about a past trek here).
