Basic Intro

The Haa Valley trek in Bhutan is one of the most popular and short treks in Bhutan.  The Bhutan government has just recently opened this route for the trekkers. It is a short and scenic trek with panoramic views of Mount Chomolhari, some other Himalayan peaks, and the Paro Valley and the Haa Valley. This trek is also not too strenuous as walking distances between the camps are not too long. After this trek, we will visit Taktsang Monastery (Tigers Nest), Paro Dzong and Ta Dzong in Paro, and Tashi Cho Dzong in Thimphu.

Useful Information

Autumn (October to December) is the best season for the Haa Valley Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views of mountains. During winter (Dec., Jan., and Feb.) could also be an option but from April the climate remains dry and pleasant. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Tour in the Monsoon seasons (June to Aug.) will be affected by rain. If you’re interested in seeing the rare black–necked cranes, we recommend visiting the Phobjikha Vally between late October and mid-February.
