On beaten trails or virgin tracks, Nepal is a trekker's paradise. The organic rhythm of foot travel is a wonderful way to explore and make meaningful contact with the country. Trekking usually consists of a series of ascents and descents walking 5 to 7 hours (9 to 14 km per day on average with a guide, cook and porters and on some occasion’s pack animals.

 

A typical trek day in Bhutan.

On a typical trek day in Bhutan, you are woken up with a bed tea around dawn around 7-7:30am. Then you are provided with a bowl of warm water to wash and brush. Breakfast is ready and served in your dinning tent. After breakfast, crews take down the tents, clean the campsite, pack the bags/boxes and begin loading the animals, at which time you and your guide set-off on the trail. This process of taking down and loading the animals in the morning may seem tedious chore but is done amazingly fast while you are getting ready yourself. During the day, for most part of the time, you walk at your own pace and stop to take pictures or admire landscapes. All you carry is a personal backpack with only a water bottle, camera and jacket and accessories you need during the day. Around noon, hot lunch or packed picnic lunch with tea, coffee and juice is served.
