Lying in the Eastern Himalayas with Tibet to the north and the Indian states of Assam and West Bengal to the south, Bhutan is both geographically and culturally extraordinary. Incredibly, Bhutan covers a total area of just under 50,000 square kilometres.
Despite its diminutive size, Bhutan plays host to some of the most challenging treks in the world and in fact, the “Toughest Trek in the World” happens here, The Snowman Trek, which is a 200-mile expedition through Bhutan’s hinterland.
However, Bhutan is a fantastic place to explore on foot for all ages and abilities and walking this spectacularly beautiful country is the best way to connect with its natural beauty and meet some of the inhabitants of holy valleys and charming villages. You might even try some meditating while you forge ahead on a journey of self-discovery!
