Trek was tough due to mud and horse droppings , tenting in snow and ice and Horses not pleasant ! Best to trek in Nepal and stay in Guest houses but get comparable Himilayan views ... Wonderfully friendly genuine generous people in Bhutan . Art and culture worth the visit but not trekking ...

Beautiful snowcapped mountains, holds one spell - bounded. Its a must visit if you are in Thimphu. The entire area is charming and especially in the month of December when we were there, it was amazing.

This trail went through 5 climate zones passing several stupas and monestaries. Unfortunately we were pushed back by early snows and the Yaks would not go any further.
