Bumthang Cultural Trek

Bumthang cultural trek goes through Choekhor and Tang valley, passing across remote villages, ancient temples and even Ugencholing manor. It is a 3 days trek and it is named so because it provides opportunities to see the villages and temples more than any other trek in Bhutan. Though relatively a short trek, there is a days long climb and descend to Phephe La(3360). However there is no significant altitude gain as with other treks and your night halts are all below 3100m.
