What is Trek ?

A trek is walking at your own pace along well-established village trails, enjoying close contact with people in remote mountain villages whose lifestyle has not changed for generations. Perhaps the most enjoyable parts of a trek are the clean mountain air and the magnificent views of the mighty Himalayan peaks. You will feel at peace with nature and with yourself.

The power and beauty of the mountains is more impressive on foot than from any vehicle. Whether you take a two-night trek around the Bumthang valley or take the eight-day trek to the base of Mt. Chomolhari, the views, villages, people and experience will be unparalleled. Trekking during April and May in the Himalayas brings the deep reds and oranges of the rhododendrons blossom. Earlier in the year the light is shaper but the nights are very cold. In autumn, after the rainy season, the skies clear and leaves begin to turn yellow.

We at Skyline Treks & Expedition (P) Ltd. are committed to offer very personal and efficient services especially for the trekkers. All trekkers are accompanied by guide, a cook and some experienced staff. Provisions and luggage are carried by mountain horses and at high altitude by Yaks. With the surest footing, they lead trekking groups across the passes. The horseman and cook will usually run ahead during a trekking day. They will have prepared a packed lunch and will go on to the night's resting place to set up camp. On your arrival at the campsite nothing will taste better than being greeted with a hot cup of tea and biscuits. Treks vary from short three-day walks across low altitudes to the three weeks Snowman trek that covers 356kms. The northern paths climb as high as 5500m and should be attempted by b, experienced walkers. Our guides are trained to look out for altitude sickness and other ailments that can affect trekkers. They are expert walkers who have been trained as trekking guides and follow routes that have been walked for centuries.

Whichever trek you choose, it is essential to remember that a trek is not a climbing experience. Camp sites are carefully selected to afford you a walk each day at your own pace and our Sherpa staff is always around to guide you. All camping equipment and foodstuffs are provided, and will also carry your duffel bags. All you need to carry is your daypack with camera equipment, water bottle and toilet kit. Should you find it difficult to even cope with this; our Sherpas will be more than happy to assist you.
