Overview

Bhutan Laya Gasa Trek gives you an experience life in the rugged terrains of northern Bhutan and also interacts with the rural highlanders. Nothing can beat the beauty of the vivid mountains you get to witness throughout the trek. The Gasa hot springs which awaits you at the end of the trek is the reward for completing the trek. One of the most popular hot springs of Bhutan, the Gasa hot springs offer healing properties for all kinds of ailments such as body aches, skin diseases, sinusitis, gastritis, renal problems and bronchitis.

Our journey starts on arrival at Paro airport, welcomed by our Bhutan representative and after immigration formalities, you will escort to the hotel. A pre-trip discussion held in Hotel where you can meet your group leader/guide then you can ask any questions you may have. We spent one and half day sightseeing around the Paro valley, the day will start with a guided tour of Paro historical and spiritual key attractions; visit the National Museum which has a very interesting assortment of costumes, treasures and world-renowned stamps, and will bring alive the history of Bhutan since the 6th century and a full day excursion to the Tiger’s Nest locally known as Taktsang Gompa, this incredible monastery clings to the edge of a sheer rock cliff that plunges 900 meters into the valley below. Then trek follows the same route as the Chomolhari trek until it reaches the Lingshi campsite. From here, the trail diverges to the left towards Chebisa. Trek highlights include Laya villages with their unique cultural dress code, as well as diverse flora and fauna, including a good opportunity to spot the famed blue sheep of the Himalayas, yak herders’ camps, mar-mud and more. On the final day, you have the opportunity to soak in natural hot springs – renowned in Bhutan as a medicinal treatment for physical ailments. We finally arrive into the lush valley of Thimphu the Capital city. After touring through this tiny no traffic light Capital city we will return to Paro and take our flight back home with beautiful memories of this land.
