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
