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.

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.
