Hiking in Bhutan

BhutanOne of the most popular activities that we arrange in Bhutan is private hiking excursions, including day hikes, shorter hikes and scenic walks, and overnight treks. This is a great way to experience the beautiful Himalayan scenery, visit local villages, meet the people, and learn about Bhutanese traditions and beliefs.
