The variety of Bhutan tour, travel and trekking range from a simple three day trek from the district of Thimphu to Paro and vise-versa to the 25-day legendary Snowman trek that takes veteran trekkers through some of the most exquisite spots in the country. Almost all Bhutan holiday packages offer a combination of natural discover and an insight into the country's delicate and unique daily life. Many of the trails take walkers past remote and ancient monasteries, through deep forests, and close to villages. The trails pass grasslands and pastures for livestock and meadows of wildflowers, butterflies and grazing animals. Trekkers often get to spot blue sheep, takin and a variety of birdlife including the wild pheasants. Bhutan trip are also famous for the majestic views of the Himalayan peaks that provide a sense of awe and wonder and a point of contemplation for trekkers along the way.
One of them is the Jumolhari trek where trekkers go to the base of camp for Mt. Jumolhari. Bhutan's most deeply venerated peal on the border of Bhutan and the Tibet region of China. Trekkers often come back with a sense of the majesty of high altitudes, where life ticks to a different time. The Bumthang trek is a cultural trek that takes you through villages and heritage sites in the valley. Spring is a botanist's delight as rhododendrons, wild azaleas and masses of wildflowers including the edelweiss cover the meadows like carpet. Pear and apple blossoms add a dainty touch to the valleys as their pink and white blooms add a sense of new wonder to the land that is about to burst with abundant growth again.
Summer is an abundant time of the year as flowers are in bloom and the valleys are covered in green, weeping willows sweep the banks of many of the rivers and the pine cones glisten in the sun, so full with resin they are ready to plummet to the ground. Autumn casts a bright golden glow on the vast landscape and is one of the more crowded times of the year for tourism in Bhutan. Winter has its moments. The days are full of sunshine while evening can turn chilly. The winter landscape lays bare the majesty of the mountains and the sweeping valleys. Soft tufts of the cloud drape lazily over mountains tops as if waiting for new life to blow it across the landscape.
