TREKKING BETWEEN UNCLIMBED PEAKS
Trekking in Bhutan is a unique experience unlike many of the more crowded treks offered in Asia. The variety of treks range from a simple three- day trek from the district of the Thimphu to Paro to the 28 days legendary Snowmen trek that takes veteran trekkers through some of the most exquite sports in the country. The Snowmen trek is also labeled the world’s toughest trek as it goes over 12- 14 mountains passes all of them over 4,500m -5, 000m.
Camping equipment, kitchen implements, food, are carried by packed animals. Porters are rather unusual in Bhutan with loads usually carted by horses or higher region by Yaks. For the walkers are most appropriate trekking times are mid March and mid September to beginning of November. There are how ever also trekking routes that are better suited the summer or winter.
Culturally this country has no parallel. For many centuries the Himalaya isolated Bhutan so that its language, society and social customs developed with little external influence. The culture based purely on Buddhist philosophy. It is neither borrowed nor made in recent years, the roots of its existence are as old the existence of the land and people themselves. Nowhere is this better witness than in the Tshechu rituals. These festivals reenact Bhutanese history and religious lesions for successive generations, while providing great community enjoyment.
The people of Bhutan still live a primarily agrarian life. The country is largely populated by the three ethnic groups. In the Eastern areas, Sharchops predominate and are believed to be the earliest inhabitants. In the West you will fined Naglops of Tibetan descent and in the South many Nepalese who began settling in Bhutan in the 1900’s. The Bhutanese are warm friendly, peace loving, hard working and enjoy a great sense of humor.
