9 Days Samtengang Trek

Bhutan, known to her people as ‘Druk Yul’ (Land of the Thunder Dragon) has never failed to mesmerize her visitors. She is as much known for her awesome landscapes and architecture, as for her rich and colourful cultural heritage. Land-locked and surrounded by the Himalayan mountain range, the awe-inspiring valleys and mountain passes, sprawling glaciers, stupendous waterfalls, crystal lakes, deep gorges and vast undulating flower-studded meadows will take anyone’s breath away and offers great opportunity for trekking.

The Samtengang trek is one of the low altitude treks in Bhutan. It is a three to four days trek and with altitudes from 1,500 to 2,650 metres. The trek is also a cultural trek, passing through the villages of Punakha & Wangdi region, rhododendron and oak trees forest, paddy fields, monasteries and lakes. In March, the Rhododendron flowers will be in full bloom.
