Bumthang Culture Trek

Bumthang Culture Trek

This 7-days trek is named because the opportunities to visit villages and Lhakhangs are greater than on most other treks in Bhutan. Though it is a short trek, the Bumthang trek is strenuous because it involves a climb to Phephe La (3360 m). This is a popular Trek.
