Red Savannah recently introduced three new itineraries exploring the new Trans Bhutan Trail, which opens Sept. 28. The 250-mile trail is a footpath linking Haa to Trashigang.
The itineraries include:
On this eight-day trip, guests hike along some of the most iconic parts of the trail to find beautiful orchards, remote hillside dzongs and the stunning Dochula Pass. Travelers also climb to the revered Tiger’s Nest Monastery and enjoy a spa day at COMO Uma Paro.
This 10-day trip features two days’ worth of hiking along the trail, as well as a true taste of Bhutanese culture through traditional scenic lunches in local farming villages. Guests also have the chance to learn archery, Bhutan’s national sport; relax at Gangtey Lodge’s spa; and catch a glimpse of black-necked cranes at Gangtey Goenpa monastery.
Travelers on this 12-day trip explore some of the least-visited areas of the country. The eastern section of the trail features experiences most people won’t get to see, including Namling waterfall, ruins of the Zhongar Dzong fortress and the historic Dramatese temple. The majority of the trip is spent along the Trans Bhutan Trail, with outdoor lodging at the campsite and traditional Bhutanese meals.
