Wild East Rodung-La Trek (Challenging)


This journey across the top of eastern Bhutan follows what used to be an important trade route before completion of the national highway. The trek is tough, and involves a tremendously long, steep descent. Few groups take up the challenge which this long and demanding journey presents. The account below is incomplete as Etho Metho guides are still researching alternative routes/night halts, etc. for some sections of the trek, which we hope to be able to offer on a regular basis within 2-3 years.

Months: April, May, September, October, early November.
