The power of the beauty of the mountain is more impressive on foot than from any vehicle. Whether you take a two night trek around the Bumthang valley or take a eight trek to base of Mt.Chomolhari, the views, villages, people and experience will be unparalleled. Trekking during April and May in Himalayas brings deep reds and oranges of the rhododendron blossom. Earlier in the year the light is sharper but the nights are very cold. In autumn, the skies clear and leaves begin to turn yellow.
We at Manakamana Travels are committed to offer very personal and effective services specially for the trekkers. All trekkers are accompanied by a Guide, a cook and some experienced staffs. Provisions and luggage are carried by mountain horses and at high altitude by Yaks. With the surest footing, they lead trekking groups across the passes. The horseman and cook usually run ahead during the trekking day. They will have prepare a packed lunch and will go on to the night's resting place to set up camp. On your arrival at the campsite, nothing will better than being greeted with a hot cup of tea and biscuits.
Treks vary from short three day walks across the low altitude to the three weeks Snowman trek that covers 356kms. The northern paths climb as high as 5500mt. and should be attempted by strong experienced walkers. Our guides are trained to look out for altitude sickness and other ailments that can affect trekkers. They are expert walkers who have been trained as trekking guides and follow routes that have been walked for centuries.
