DUER HOT SPRINGS TREK

Duer Hot Spring Trek

Total Duration: 15 Days - 14 Nights of Bhutan Trekking Tour.     Trek Days : 9 Days - 8 Nights.

Duer Hot Spring Trek is one of the most challenging treks available in Bhutan and route partially overlaps with the trail of the legendary Snowman Trek, the most difficult trek in the world. This gruelling nine day journey will take you up to the Duer Hot springs, arguably the most beautiful hot springs in the Himalayas.

The trail has numerous steep ascents and descents and ranges from altitudes between 3000-4700 m. However despite the difficulty, this trek is well worth the effort as it will take you through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Bhutan. You’ll journey through forests of spruce, hemlock, juniper and maple, through regions populated by herds of Blue Sheep, Musk Deer and even Himalayan Black Bears.

An entire day will be dedicated to resting in the hot springs. The periods between March to April and September to November are the best times to take on this challenging route.
