Bhutan Rodung La Trek

This Bhutan Rodung La trek used to be the most important trade route to eastern Bhutan before the motor able road was built. This route is hardly used at present but one cannot ignore the good trek it provides. The route can be seen as an extension of the Snowman Trek ending in Bumthang. The combination of the Snowman and Rodung La treks connects the country from the west in Paro to Trashi Yangtse in the extreme east. The trek does not lead to really high altitude but it is tough as it involves long steep descents and ascents, depending on the side you start the trek. After the trek you will not deny that Rodung La trek is one of the toughest in Bhutan.

Note: The trekking tour program does not include the total duration. Please select the trek of your choice and contact us. We will send you the program and duration. You can also combine the trek with the cultural tours. The trek which is less than five nights is the cultural trek that is done with the cultural tours.
