Overview

Nabji-Korphu Trail Trekking and Royal Manas National Park.

On this trip, we trek on the Nabji-Korphu trail in the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park, take safaris in Royal Manas National Park and survey the cultural heritage of Bhutan. Both Nabji KorphuTrail and the Manas National Park receive very few foreign travelers, and so these areas are mostly unexplored.

The Nabji-Korphu trail is a low altitude trek, suitable for all travelers of average health condition. The trail follows broadleaf forests of Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park with an impressive array of flora and fauna and rarely visited villages. Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park is the home to more than 395 species of birds, including the rare and beautiful Rufous Necked Hornbill. Other notable wildlife we can expect to see is the Golden Langur, one of the rarest primates of the world! This trip also provides an opportunity to meet the Monpa tribal people-the aboriginal inhabitants of Bhutan. The government is trying to promote sustainable tourism in this area, and the villagers provide accommodation and food in homestays and eco-lodges and local guides to explore the area so that they get direct benefits. However due to the low flow of tourists, the eco-lodges and homestays are not fully functional, and in that case, we back up with our crews with camping gears and supplies. The trail also allows only one trekking party at a time to minimize to impact on the wildlife and the environment.

After we finish the trekking, we transfer to the Royal Manas National Park-which is the oldest and among the largest national parks of Bhutan. We embark on an elephant safari, take a rafting trip down the Manas River and go on a birding trip. The park provides habitat to the elusive wildlife species that includes Royal Bengal tiger, golden langur, clouded leopard, Asian elephant, Asiatic water buffalo, dhole, and Asiatic gaur, Great One Horned Rhinoceros, etc. However, we may not have the luck to see them all in a short timebound visit. Golden Langur and Pygmy Hog that we frequently spot are critically endangered species. The national park is also home to more than 70% of Bhutan's bird population that includes three critically endangered species- White-bellied Heron, White-rumped Vulture, and Red-headed Vulture.

While wildlife is the focus, the trip also surveys the majestic forts, ancient temples, traditional arts and crafts, villages, etc.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 01~Arrive in Paro, Bhutan

Flights to Paro (altitude 7,380 feet, or 2,250 meters) arrive from Kathmandu or Bangkok or Delhi. Please allow at least one night in those cities before and after your trip to ensure a safe connection with flights to and from Bhutan. Please arrange your international airfare to the gateway city; Far & High will book the onward flight for you. Your Bhutan visa is part of the tour. We will email it to you in advance, as you’ll need it at check-in for your flight to Bhutan and again upon arrival at the Paro airport, where your passport will get its final visa seal. After completing immigration and customs formalities, your guide and driver will meet you outside the terminal and transfer you to a restaurant in the town for lunch.

After lunch, your guide will lead explorations of Paro. We begin from the National Museum housed at Ta Dzong, which served as a watchtower for the Rinpung Dzong (a dzong is a fortress and a religious and social center). The museum has a beautiful collection of books, murals, Bhutanese textiles, crafts, weapons, olden utensils, stuffed animals, and a rich philatelic collection. From here, we descend to Rinpung Dzong, which is the district headquarters and also the seat of the district's religious body.

Now, we proceed on an hour-long scenic drive to Thimphu with a stop for a short walk at the 13th-century temple of Tamchog Lakhang which was built by the famous Tibetan iron-bridge builder Thangthong Gyalpo – architect, physician, teacher, and a saint! The temple is owned and maintained by his descendants.

In Thimphu, we’ll have time to settle in and take some rest before a walking tour of the tiny city. Thimphu is probably the only capital in the world without any traffic lights! We will leisurely take a stroll and visit the memorial Chorten (shrine) of the 3rd King of Bhutan Jigme Dorje Wangchuk, and whatever else time and our interest allow.

Overnight: Khang Residency
Meals : Lunch, Dinner
Day 02~Thimphu: Sightseeing and hiking

After breakfast, we are off for sightseeing and hiking. We have a lot to see today! Depending on your interest, pace and available time, we may or may not visit all the sights listed below.

We first visit the weekend market of Thimphu, if we are here during the weekend. Farmers from the neighboring villages come to sell their fresh produce. We will also visit the archery field to see the national sports of Bhutan.

Next, we can visit the National Institute Zorig Chusum that offers a six-year course on Bhutan's traditional arts and crafts, including painting, wood carving, embroidery, and statue making. Then we can head to the Simply Bhutan Museum resembles a typical Bhutanese village with demonstrations and performances on Bhutan's arts, culture, and lifestyle. Here, you can try Bhutanese costumes and pose for photographs!

Next, we can visit the Takin Sanctuary. Takin – a kind of sheep by way of antelope — are the National animals of Bhutan and believed to exist only in Bhutan Himalaya. On the way back, stop at the Zilukha Nunnery in Drubthob Goemba, home to 40-60 Buddhist nuns.

We can visit the Gagyel Lhundrup Weaving Center, which produces traditional hand-woven textiles and has a selection of cloth and ready-made garments for sale. Here, you can see the local women working their looms. 

Next, visit the Changangkha Temple, one of the oldest in Thimphu, built in the 12th Century. The temple houses Chenrizig (Avolokitesawara), an 11-headed, thousand-armed manifestation as the central statue. 

In the afternoon, we can visit the World’s Largest Buddha Image — Buddha Dordenma, situated atop a hill overlooking the Thimphu Valley-the latest addition to Thimphu's attractions. This massive 169 feet tall image has a three-story base that houses a large chapel, while the body itself contains 125,000 smaller Buddha statues. 

An option: Hiking enthusiasts keen to experience monastic lives away from the crowds of town can take a half-day hike to Tango Goemba monastery-with a trade-off with some sights listed above. Tango Goema Monastery is Bhutan's highest learning center for Buddhist studies. All Je Khenpo, the religious head of Bhutan, must complete a nine-year program here, including a three-year, three-month, three-day course in mediation at the nearby Cheri Goemba Monastery! With luck, the monks will be in recess, and we can join them for tea. (Note: on a group tour, there must be a unanimous decision to take this hike.)

Interested in the Buddhist astrology? On our way back, we can stop at Pangri Zampa Temple-an astrology school for the state clergy. More than a hundred monks study astrology in this center, and they welcome the public for astrology consultation if anyone is interested. A week-advance notice is requested for scheduling purpose, though. 

Overnight: Khang Residency
Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 03~A long day of drive to Phobjikha Valley

(85 miles, 6 hours).

After an early breakfast, we leave for Phobjhikha Valley.

As we leave Thimphu behind, the road gradually winds up through villages and pine forests to Dochula Pass (3100m/10168 ft.), marked by 108 Buddhist shrines, flickering with sacred prayers flags offered by the Buddhist devotees. On a clear day, the pass provides a superb panorama of the snow-capped mountains and the valleys.

From the pass, the road drops slowly through the changing vegetation to the sub-tropical lowlands of the Punakha and Wangdue Valleys. In about 2 and a half hours, we will arrive in Punakha where we will stop for lunch.

We cross Lawala Pass and continue on the winding road down to the glacial valley of Phobjikha on the slopes of Black Mountains. Phobjikha is a glacial valley on the western slopes of the Black Mountains, bordering the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park. It is one of the most important wildlife preserves of Bhutan as the large flock of black-necked cranes migrate here from Siberia, Mongolia and Tibet during the winter time. Usually, the first flock arrives in late October or early November. In addition to the cranes, there are also muntjacs (barking deer), wild boars, sambars, serows, Himalayan black bears, leopards and red foxes in the surrounding hills.

Today, we first visit the prominent Gangtey Gompa of the early 17th century. It is the only Nyingmapa monastery in the region. From here, we jump on the Gangtey Nature Trail for an about 2-hours easy hike through the pine forest and the valley. The walk ends over the meandering Chhu Nap ( Black River) near Khewang village where you are picked up by transport. 

Upon arrival, check into your accommodation and the rest of the day is at leisure.

Overnight: Dewachen Hotel or Gakiling Hotel
Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 04~Hiking in Phobjikha Valley

Phobjikha is a glacial valley on the western slopes of the Black Mountains, bordering the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park. It is one of the most important wildlife preserves of Bhutan as the large flock of black-necked cranes migrate here from Siberia, Mongolia and Tibet during the winter time. Usually, the first flock arrives in late October or early November.

In addition to the cranes, there are also muntjacs (barking deer), wild boars, sambars, serows, Himalayan black bears, leopards and red foxes in the surrounding hills.

After breakfast, one-hour or little longer drive brings us to the trailhead in Gogona village. Visit the local cheese factory and the beautiful temple. The cheese maker produces excellent fresh cheeses based on Swiss cheese making traditions. Maybe you want to purchase some cheese that you can eat along the way for energy The trail goes through rhododendron, magnolia, juniper and bamboo bushes, and if you are lucky, maybe you can spot some wildlife.

The trail back towards Phobjikha valley starts downwards through the small village and crosses the valley over a beautiful flower meadow. It then continues through mystifying forests up right before the Tshelela Pass where the landscape opens up. From the pass, you continue partly on the dirt road and party on beautiful forest paths downwards and into Phobjikha valley.

Overnight: Dewachen Hotel or Gakiling Hotel
Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 05~Travel to Trongsa

(118 miles, 5 hours)

Early afternoon, we depart for Trongsa, 118 miles over four to five hours, as we backtrack to the main road and head to the east. The road gradually climbs the Black Mountain Range and crosses Pele-la pass (10,824 feet, or 3,300 meters) where the panoramic views include Mount Jhomolhari on the border with Tibet. Below is Trongsa, the hometown of the present rulers of Bhutan. We stop briefly at the Chendebji chorten, a large white monument, which is said to have concealed the remnants of an evil spirit that was vanquished here.

Re-energized after lunch, visit the majestic Trongsa Dzong that must have captivated your attention already. The Dzong is the former capital and ancestral home of Bhutan's monarchy. An architectural wonder in itself, the fortress currently serves as the headquarter of Trongsa district and a monastery.

Overnight: Yangkhil Resort or similar
Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 06~The first day of the Nabji-Korphu Trail trekking.

A hearty breakfast and then with the trekking crews, we travel to the trailhead-Tongtongfey (altitude 3,280 ft), and we arrive there in about three hours. While the crews unload the gears, we spend some time going through the information board at the Park a suspension bridge. Today, we have a chance to meet the Monpa tribal people-the aboriginal inhabitant of Bhutan.

We arrive in our campsite at Jangbi (4,428 ft) in a valley ridge that offers a magnificent view of the Mangdi Valley. Today, we hike about 6 miles in three or four hours, with an altitude gain of 1,148 ft.

Overnight: Camp
Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 07~The second day of Nabji-Korphu Trail trekking

Those interested in orchids can pay a quick visit to the orchid garden before we start our trekking of the day. Today, we come across stone imprints-believed to be the footprints of Guru Rinpoche, his dagger and phallus!

We will enjoy a picnic lunch just before a Monpa Village called Phrumzur. Re-energized, pay a visit to the temple of the village, before we continue our trekking. We travel through another village of Lekpogang and arrive at our campsite in Kubdra (4,920 ft). The campground offers birds-eye-view of Nyimshong village and also the Zhemgang town.

The park is also home to the Himalayan Black Bear, Red Pandas, tigers, Clouded leopards, and much other wildlife but we may see them with luck only.

Depending on your pace, it can take us anywhere from five to seven hours to arrive in Nabji Village (4, 264 ft), where we receive a warm welcome by Nabji Villagers.

Today, we cover the distance of 9 miles in six or seven hours with a decrease of altitude of 656 ft.

Overnight: Camp

Day 09~The fourth day of Nabji-Korphu Trail trekking

On the way, we stop in a legendary Nabji Temple amidst the paddy field. The temple enshrines a pillar that carries the thumb imprints of two warring kings as a treaty to end the war that Guru Rinpoche negotiated successfully.

As we arrive in Korphu ( 4,920 ft), we experience a warm reception from the villagers. They usually welcome visitors by performing folklore songs and dances. You can also join the traditional Bhutanese games of ‘Khuru,’ ‘Dego,’ ‘Sok-sum,’ and ‘Gee-dum,’ all on the brink of disappearance. The campsite near the village provides a bird’s-eye view of Nabji and surrounding areas.

We first visit the stunning Punakha Dzong, probably the most impressive of all the Dzong (fortress) architectures of Bhutan. It has served as the winter capital of Bhutan, and even today the chief abbot moves here from his seat in Thimphu.

Next, visit the Chimi Lhakhang Temple-a.k.a. The Fertility Temple which is a gentle 25-minutes hike from the main road. The trail goes through the paddy fields and villages. The temple is associated with Lama Drukpa Kuenley of the 15th century who was known for using humor, songs, and outrageous behavior to dramatize his teachings and for this reason, he was called the "Divine Madman." This temple is also known as the "fertility" temple, as the childless people visit the temple to receive a fertility blessing.

Now, we retrace our drive across Dhochula Pass to Paro. Shortly before the pass, we can stop at Lamperi Botanical Garden that preserves the rich fauna including Rhododendron flowers. After a lunch stop in the Dhochula pass, we will continue to Paro.

The balance of the day is at leisure.

Overnight: Khangkhu Resort
Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 16~Paro: Hike the Taktsang Monastery

Today is a big day! Takstang Monastery – the Tiger's Nest, Bhutan’s most famous pilgrimage. Perched dramatically on the edge of a 2,000-foot cliff above the valley, Tiger's Nest is the unofficial symbol of Bhutan and a forever-memorable destination for anyone who makes the trip. The round trip is about four hours. It is possible to ride a pony up to the two-thirds of the trail, but not on the upper path, or on the way down.

On the way back to Paro, we will detour to the ruins of Drukgyel Dzong, a 16th Century monastery built to mark the Bhutanese victory over Tibetan invaders, and also the ancient Kyichu Lhakhang Temple – another of the 108 temples that King Songsten Gampo of Tibet built in a single night in the 7th century!

Optional Hot Stone Bath:
With advance notice, you can experience a traditional Hot Stone Bath in a farmhouse. Hot stone bath is a conventional Bhutanese method of curing skin ailments, joint pains, hypertension, stomach disorders, arthritis, and many other diseases. Even if you don’t have any of these issues, it’s a wonderfully relaxing experience, especially after a strenuous hike. It costs approximately $25 per person.

Overnight: Khanghu Resort or Raven's Nest Resort
Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 17~Depart Paro

Trip Difficulty Level, Road, and Transport

This trip includes six days of low altitude trekking in the foothills of the Black Mountain Range that's the part of Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park. You can walk on your pace, interacting with the locals, watching the birds and wildlife along the trail. Walking duration should vary from three to six hours and sometimes a bit longer, but no hiking or trekking experience is necessary to join this trip. The trek altitude ranges from 2,273 ft to 5,412 ft, and so there is no risk of high-altitude on this trip.

Activities in Royal Manas National Park includes an elephant safari, rafting trip, and birding walk. We will use an SUV or a van for all transfers and sightseeing and another supporting vehicle to transport the gears and supplies to the trekking trailhead. During the trekking, we use ponies led by their owners.

Keep in mind that roads can be an adventure in themselves – they are not always paved; they are at times steep, dusty and bumpy as well; and they can at times be blocked temporarily due to erosion or landslide. We don’t drive far, but some days can be long, due to road condition. Anyone in general good health can enjoy this trip, although we suggest some advance walking, jogging, cycling, or swimming ahead of the time to keep you fit.

Accommodations

The hotels on the cities are 3-star by local standard. Majority hotels in Bhutan are usually small, on average with 25 to 40 rooms, built in the local architectural style and have traditional decor. The hotels are adequately comfortable, with private bathroom, running hot and cold water and heating and cooling features. However, hair dryers, iron, and ironing tables, etc. may not be available in some hotels. We have to be prepared to adjust our routine and mentally be okay with things that may not work or be available when we want them to. Most hotels do provide cable or wireless internet in the room, but speed is not that great. They offer space heaters, but it may not be adequate during the winter. So, your guide will provide you one hot-water bag, that you can fill with hot water and use in the bed during the night time.

The government is trying to promote sustainable tourism on the Nabji Trail, and the villagers provide accommodation and food in homestays or eco-lodges and local guides to explore the areas so that they get the direct benefits. However due to the low flow of tourists, the lodges and home-stays are not fully functional, and in that case, we back up with our crews with camping gears and supplies. Camping gears include tents (one tent for two), thermal pads, blow pillow, hot-water bag, etc.)

Meals

The trip includes three meals a day. You expect to eat most breakfast and dinner at your hotels. During the road trip, we will book our lunches in the roadside restaurants. During the hiking excursion, your guide will bring packed lunches. While in the city of Paro and Thimphu, your guide will book dinner in the restaurants in the town. Meals are served in a buffet style or a set menu.

During the trekking, the meals are prepared by a host family when we are in the home-stays or eco-lodges and prepared by our trekking cook when we are in our camps. 

A typical meal includes rice dishes, curried or stir-fried vegetables, noodles or spaghetti, one or two meat items, etc. There are limited verities and chefs are not trained in western style dishes. So, you will find the menu pattern repeating. Your guide may take you out for dinner once or twice for change of taste. Meats tend to be chewy as they are imported. They don't slaughter animals in Bhutan. Beware, local style meat sauces can contain bones. Traditional Bhutanese food always features chilies, and the most popular dish is ema datse made with large, green hot chilies in a cheese sauce.

Guides

Our guides are college educated locals, proficient in English and trained and licensed by local tourism authorities. Most importantly they are friendly and committed to delivering the best services. They are always willing to show the wonders that you would otherwise never find on your own. Every evening, you can discuss with your guide about the next day's schedule. You will have the opportunity to ask for any changes in the plan if need be and our guide will do his or her best to accommodate your requests.

International and internal airfares

The tour starts and finishes in Paro, Bhutan. There are no direct flight connections from the USA or Europe to Bhutan. You need to first fly to Bangkok, Delhi, Kolkata or Kathmandu, spend a night there and next day to Bhutan. Bangkok is the most popular gateway for travel to Bhutan, as there are daily two flights from Bangkok and the US citizens and most European passport holders don't need a visa for Thailand.

From Kathmandu and Delhi also there are five or six flights a week depending on the season. Please do not buy your international airfare until Bhutan flight schedule is available.

Passport and Visa

Your passport must be valid for at least six months beyond the last day of your trip, and there must be one or two blank pages on your passport for the visa sticker, and entry and exit seals. Far & High will apply Bhutan visa for you in advance, and we will email you an eVisa copy about three weeks before your trip date. Your passport gets an actual visa seal upon arrival at the Paro airport. If you are traveling via Indian cities, you need to obtain an Indian visa before your travel begins. If you are flying via Kathmandu, Nepal, you can get Nepal visa upon arrival.

Note on Itinerary

Although we will do our very best to adhere to the itinerary schedule as listed; it is subject to change for numerous reasons beyond our control.

Booking Deposit & Payment Schedule

A deposit of US$ 300 is requested along with a completed trip registration form to hold your place on the trip. We also need a color scan of the passport. You can charge the deposit on any major credit cards.

When it’s time to purchase the Bhutan flight tickets, we will request from you the next payment for the flights.

Final and balance payment is due 90 days prior departure. Final payment by credit card also attracts an additional 3.5% fee. You will save this fee by paying personal check or cashier's check. We reserve the right to refuse some form of payment.

Cancellation and Refund

If you need to cancel, please email or fax your cancellation notice to us soon you decide. The general cancellation fee structure will be below:

  • Ninety days before departure: US$ 150 (Administrative Fee).
  • 60-89 day's before departure: US$ 300 or 25% of the land cost whichever is higher.
  • Forty-five days to 59 days before departure: US$ 450 or 50% of the land cost whichever is higher.
  • Thirty days to 44 days before US$ 600 or 75% of the land cost whichever is higher.
  • Less than 30 days: 100%.

Travel Protection Plan

While we spare no effort to make your tour smooth and enjoyable, there might be unforeseen events and conditions such as illness, accident, inclement weather, flight cancellation, missed connection, or loss of baggage, any of which can cause interruption, delay or total cancellation of your trip, thus putting your hard-earned travel investment in jeopardy. It’s also possible that you might need medical assistance, emergency evacuation, or medical transportation when you become ill or are involved in an accident when you are traveling in remote areas. The trip cost does not cover any of these expenses or losses, and so we strongly recommend that you should protect yourself and your travel investment against those unfavorable conditions.
