Aside from multi-day treks, there are ample opportunities for day hikes around Thimpu, Paro, and many other places. Trekking and hiking in Bhutan is an inspiring way to see wilderness of the mystical land, traditional villages, and their remote culture& tradition.
Trekking and hiking in Bhutan give you an extraordinary chance to explore the semi-tropical and alpine forests at the lower altitude which is a habitat for a wealth of bird life, flora and fauna.
Some of the popular trekking and hiking routes of Bhutan are Gangtey trek, Druk path trek, Bumthum cultural trek, Chomolhari, Mountain goddess trek, Masagang trek, Gangkar plenum south-east face trek, beautiful Laya/Gasa trek, Snowman trek. The power and beauty of the mountains are more impressive on foot than from any vehicle.
Whether you take a two-night trek around the Haa valley or walk for 3 days from Thimpu to Paro or take the eight-day trek to the base of Mount Chomolhari, the views, villages, people, and experience will be unparalleled. To talk about the weather there, it is more difficult than trekking in Nepal or Ladakh.
The window for trekking and hiking in Bhutan is short and come twice a year: the weather is most suitable for high-altitude trekking for about 3 weeks in April and 3-4 weeks in October. The official seasons do extend longer than expected, but at these times one has the highest chance of experiencing a clear with a little snow making it a perfect route. There are of course low-altitude treks that open up during the winter, but given the costs and the difficult situations there, it might be appropriate to give the high lands a try as this may as well be a once in a lifetime opportunity.
