Situated in the eastern Himalayas it’s a small country both geographically and population wise. Bhutan is under the influence of the Indian monsoon that precludes trekking throughout the summer months from the end of May till the middle of September. Ideal time to trek in Bhutan is therefore either pre-monsoon from mid March when the snow begins to melt off the high passes until the end of May, or post-monsoon, from October through to mid-November.
Temperatures vary considerably. On any one trek the temperature may vary from 20˚C during the day to -5˚C when the occasional storm breaks over the high passes. Jackets and sleeping bags are provided but its advisable to bring one own. Though we arrange for most of the normal requirements of equipments but if guest can arrange one he save some amount on the trek

Altitude Sickness Notes
Although rare altitude sickness can be an acute problem for trekkers
Some of the designated treks go above 3000 metres / 9000 feet
People with espiratory problems are advised not to trek
The potential for altitude sickness should consider carrying a supply of Diamox as a precaution.
Oxygen cylinders are not available
Less experienced trekkers are recommended to consider either the Sinchula Trek, Chele La nature trek or the Dagala 1000 Lakes trek, which are all easily accessible in western Bhutan, passing crystal clear lakes and on clear days offering splendid views of the high Himalayas.
Strenuous rated treks take in northern villages and pass yak herdsmen who spend most of the year tending to their herds. Some of these treks climb as high as 5500 metres and should only be attempted by exceptionally fit & strong trekkers with alpine experience.
