Initial planning for Bhutan trip

Jump to last reply

We're starting to plan our trip to Bhutan and interested in other views on the length of time and locations we've selected. While we want to see temples and monasteries, we also want a lot of the focus to be on moderate hikes/walks (we don't want to do a trek but do want to do some ambitious hikes/walks). Along these lines, we aren't trying to see "everything" and don't want to be moving around nonstop.

Initial itinerary: 3 nights Paro (Uma Paro), 3 nights Punahka (Uma Punahka) and 3 nights Gangtey (Amankora). Do these nights sound about right and any particular order others would recommend?

Thinking we'll skip Bumthang and Thimphu as the above seem to fit more of what we're targeting but welcome thoughts otherwise.

A friend just had their hotel plan the itinerary/ trek when they were only staying at the one chain (COMO Uma) so not sure if easier to just have the hotels coordinate as we're not looking for anything too out there on itinerary? I saw good reviews for Snow White Treks but website wasn't working and not sure if she does high end or more moderate travel (we're looking for high end).

Excited to be planning and we'll either be going in the fall of 2017 or spring of 2018.
