I hope all is well with you, and apologies for such long silence. After spending two wonderful weeks in Bhutan, we came back home to a heavy work load, and I just had the chance to put together all my photos from the trip.
I don’t have the emails of our first guide, Tsering, and the hike crew. Can you please forward the link to them as well?

This was the best trip I’ve ever done in my life, and thank you all for such a wonderful experience. I have been in touch with the wildlife biologist that we met at Jangothang, and we are planning to work together on a snow leopard project. If all goes well, we might see each other sooner than later, and maybe, I may get a second chance to see the elusive snow leopard. 🙂
And, Duba, I promised you the exact distance and time of all the legs of our hike. Here they are:
Day 1 7.5 km 2:40
Day 2 8.9 km 3:56
Day 3 12.8 km 5:25
Day 4 11.3 km 3:46
Day 5 19.1 km 7:10
Day 6 11.4 km 4:08
Day 7 14.4 km 3:18
This was really a fantastic hike. The only change I could suggest would be to combine the first two days if your customers are fit enough and if you prefer to do this in 6 instead of 7 days. We thought we could handle and enjoy the long and gradual hike up to the second campsite in one day.
