  • A Himalayan trek is the ultimate travel experience, & allows you to traverse some of Bhutan's most breathtaking terrain. The climb starts in Paro, with a few hours' of trekking per day until you reach Simkota at more than 12,500 feet above sea level
  • Go on the Druk Path trek which is an easy to moderate trek that passes through alpine woods and lush open meadows. Walk over gentle terrains following the age-old yak trails and enjoy picturesque views of mountains and the Jimilangtsho lakes. Bhutan is an off-beat experience riding through the lush green valleys, awe-struck amazing countryside, happy faces, unimaginable stunning passes, and the list goes on. To admire this raw aesthetic geography, one must encounter challenges on the road like uphill terrain ride, bumpy roads, exotic curves, and the risk involved which further heightens the enjoyment. Bhutan is the happiest nation of Asia, where exclusivity is guaranteed. Druk Path Trek is one of the finest short treks in Bhutan. Leading through an ancient trading route, over high mountain passes, it connects the valleys of Paro and Thimpu. Trail passes through spectacular rhododendron forests, alpine yak pastures and beautiful lakes stocked with snowy mountain trouts. The trek begins by walking up through apple orchards and pine forest past ruined Jele Dzong (fortress), which sits on a high grassy ridge with breathtaking views of Mount Jumolhari to the north. In the next 5 days, we climb above the tree line and cross several passes, including the Phume La (4210m.). En route, we come across clear mountain lakes, number of yak herder’s camps and have splendid views of Himalaya along the Bhutan – Tibet border including Mount Jumolhari, Jichu Drake and Gangkar Puensum. Our final descent through pine and juniper forests via Phajoding monastery would lead into Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan.
  • Went for a short trip in Meiko, Kirkkonummi, Finland. Only 30 minutes from Helsinki, very easy to find and well marked routes. 3 Main routes: Meiko round 8 km. Kotokierros round 4.4km. Kuikankierros round 3.7km. Couple of firespots to take a break. Easy access all year long, trails open without maintenance due to amount of people visiting.
