Hidden Kingdom Trek

This is a long distance trek in Bhutan along the remote northern border with Tibet . Although the trek is long, rest days occur regularly and allow plenty of time to interact with the local people. The mountain scenery is magnificent - most of the peaks being unclimbed, unmapped and un-named. The trek will pass underneath the second highest peak in Bhutan , Chomolhari 23,996ft/7,314m, first climbed by Spencer Chapman in 1937 and now a forbidden peak on religious grounds. There are many passes to cross, offering tantalizing panoramas of distant ranges and the opportunity to spot Blue sheep. Flora and fauna are diverse and abundant at every stage of the journey. Our experience over the years has shown that the best weather is usually in early October and that there is a danger of the highest northern passes being closed by snow in late October. The itinerary allows sufficient time to cope with unforeseen problems and to absorb thoroughly Bhutan's tranquil atmosphere and unique culture.

We have the very best contacts in Bhutan as a result of Steven Berry's first-ever British mountaineering expedition to Gangkar Punsum in 1986. Since 1988 we have concentrated on pioneering many new trekking routes in Bhutan, quite a few of them British 'firsts', and are proud to be the UK's leading operator to the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon. More people travel with us from Britain than with anyone else. All come back ecstatic about Bhutan 's unique culture, people and magnificent scenery.
