Adventure and Trekking Tours with MOLAY Travels
Generally everywhere, and superficially in south Asia trekking is mostly associated with male trekkers and guides, porters and other supporters. This is also quite a common scene and trend in Bhutan. We have had friends who were not able to opt trekking programs simply because they were women. We are of the opinion that women are no less and provide equal opportunity for trained, able men and women just the same.We want to break the broad stereotype image of Bhutan with full team of men guides, porters and operators of trekking in Bhutan.
We work with certified trekking women guides and porters and ensure that they get a preference to work with us. It is a normal trend that women drivers, porters and guides either do not get the opportunity or less preference in the industry. We provide a safe and comfortable space for local women to prove their talents and stand on their on feet with steady source of income. While we can customize our adventure travel needs from camping, hikes, trekking, biking, and kayaking some of our programs
Druk Path translates to “Dragon trail” which is also the name of the country in Dzongkha. It is a easy trek of six days between Paro to Thimphu, but most people also do the actual trek in 4 days. The Tourism Council of Bhutan claims that “this is the is the most popular trek in the country as it passes through a gorgeous natural landscape of blue pine forests, high ridges and pristine lakes while at the same time offering the opportunity to visit some ancient lhakhangs, dzongs and villages”. Above everything else, it is a true treat of wilderness with alpine meadows, beautiful lakes, tons and tons of flowers including the rare and special national flower- the blue poppy. This is ofcourse in addition to the peaceful blue pine forests on the outskirts of Paro and Thimphu which is then followed by Hemlocks and Junipers higher up. The trek starts fromParoand ends in Thimphu. The maximum Elevation is about 4,220m. The best Season is from March to June and September to November. We will also provide opportunity to interact with local women groups and farmers in Paro and Thimphu. There are also options to do home stays and check out local food. For the sake of maintaining our own specialty, the specific details are shared off- the website. Please let us know if you would want to hear anything more.
