Luxury travel Bhutan. Bhutan - wild and casual. Experience unforgettable moments. Barefoot luxury, active and relaxed. Travel like Dr. Julia Malchow.
Hike over swaying suspension bridges, through fertile valleys, along shallow mountain ridges, surrounded by dizzying peaks, past monasteries and palaces. The Velvet Walk Trek lets you enter another world far away from the hectic hustle and bustle.
Your adventure trek on the Velvet Gang Trek starts from Punakha by crossing the longest suspension bridge in Bhutan. New worlds will open up to you along the easy path that will amaze you. Through lush fields, mystical pine forests, past curly ferns, mighty oaks and shining rhododendrons, in the fertile valley there is a hustle and bustle that you can't take your eyes off of.
In the evening you can enjoy the beauty of the clear starry sky and the peaceful tranquility of Limbukha by the campfire in front of your tent. Strengthened, you set out for a side valley the next day and listen to the invigorating chirping of birds as you descend through the woods to the Dochen La Pass. Through colorful waving prayer flags, a sensational view of the surrounding peaks Jumolhari, Kang Bum and Tiger Mountain is prepared for you. Take a breather and soak up the untouched, rugged nature before you reach Chungsakha, past idyllic courtyards, the Dargyel Gompa monastery in the afternoon.
Let yourself be drawn into the magic of life in numerous small mountain villages on the earthy path to Samtengang, marvel at the holy lake Lutschokha and let the beautiful surroundings work on you while you relax in the camp from the altitude of the day. After a restful night, the last section of the path leads steeply down through fields in bloom into the Dang Chhu Valley, where your driver will be waiting for you at the Tika Zam Bridge.
The best family trip we have ever done. And we have been traveling as a family for 20 years. The husky tour, the snowmobile race, the extraordinary lodges and camps - glamping in the snow - the incredible people we met and many other small and large details - have welded us together, challenged us, made us lastingly happy. Thank you Julia for the great coaching, the priceless inspiration and the perfect implementation.
