tour details

The ’10-Day Sinchula Winter Trek’ is a pleasant low-altitude trek that follows the traditional trail used by people moving between Thimphu and Punakha long before there were paved roads. Hike through a beautiful landscape of blue pine, rhododendrons, oak forests and sun-drenched terraced rice fields and then camp overnight beneath snowcapped mountains. Marvel at holy cliffside monasteries, learn the art of Bhutanese paper-making and see how people currently live in the countryside.
