What To Expect
MT Sobek: Bhutan Chomolhari Trek

Reason #01

MT Sobek was one of the first adventure travel companies to offer trips in Bhutan in the 1980's

Reason #02

Our exclusive guides in Bhutan have been working with us for decades

Reason #03

The Chomolhari Trek is one of just a few Ultimate Challenge treks in Asia.

Activities

Strenuous hiking on steep wilderness trails, covering 5 to 12 miles per day over rugged terrain at a maximum elevation of 16,000'.

Lodging

Warm Bhutanese guesthouses and inns combined with six nights of remote wilderness camping.

Climate

On trek: day time temperatures: 45° - 65°F; night time temperatures 10° - 35°F. Rain or snow possible. Warmer in Paro and Thimphu.

Who will meet me on arrival?

On Day-1, you will arrive in Bangkok, and transfer to the hotel via a free 24-hour shuttle bus on your own. The following day, you will fly to Paro. Upon arrival at the Paro Airport, meet your MT Sobek guide.

Do I need a Bhutan visa?

Yes, we handle the group visa for you.

Do I need to bring a sleeping bag for this trip?

Yes. We recommend a rating of -5°F to 10°F for the springtime and the first October departure, -10°F to -5°F for the mid-October and November trips.

How does this trek compare to Everest Base Camp?

These two treks are equally challenging in different ways. Everest Base Camp is longer and has higher altitude. Chomolhari features tent camping, bringing you closer to the elements. Chomolhari is also considerably less crowded.

Do we book our flights from Bangkok to Paro?

No, we provide that service and book those flights for you, as they are not easy to book on your own.
