What kind of bags should I bring?

We suggest bringing a rucksack/backpack is best (50-60 liters) - horses carry the luggage so this style of travel bag is easier to load. Alternatively, a soft bag with handles is fine. Suitcases can not be taken on our treks.

Will I suffer from altitude problems on the trek?

Although our Bhutan treks do climb to altitude, we endeavor to plan the itinerary so that you can acclimatize gradually as you ascend.

However, in some cases, the altitude gain will be greater due to the geographic terrain. We recommend doing the Tiger’s Nest Monastery hike prior to the start of your trek and if there's time, climbing to a high pass such as the Chelila Pass (3,810) on the way to Haa.

This assists enormously with acclimatization. It is also important to walk at your own pace and drink plenty of water. You should tell your guide if you have a headache, dizziness or any other health complaint. Our guides are all trained in first aid and understand what to do if someone is suffering from altitude sickness.

You may wish to bring suitable medication/alternative remedies including Diamox, ginkgo and homeopathic medicines.

How and where do I apply for Visa?

Your Visa to Bhutan can only be applied and processed by an authorized and registered travel agent such as us. The Visa will come together with your travel package to Bhutan. You can't apply Visa yourself and Bhutan embassy does not have travel visa services.
