Bhutan-Druk Path Trek

Jump to last reply

In the very, very early planning stages of a trip to Bhutan next October. One of the itineraries I've gotten includes the Druk Path trek, from Paro to Thimpu, to be completed in 5 days. Anyone done this? Is there good, varied scenery? How strenuous is it? It tends to be categorized as moderate, but that means different things to different people. I'm under forty (barely), and in decent shape... if I did this I'd get into better shape leading up to the trip. How did the altitude affect you-- this worries me the most, because living in Chicago, I'm not used to it. I know everyone is different, but just looking for some first hand experiences as I decide whether or not to do this.

Thanks!
