This is a sojourn into the heart of Bhutan where modernization has barely changed life and landscape. We meet Bhutan’s oldest – unfortunately vanishing – tribe called the Monpa. We meet local people who will receive us with elaborate traditional customs into their homes and perform their folk songs and dances for us. Above all, we enter the most primeval stretch of nature reserve home to several species of wild cats and a multitude of birds. At no other place can one get as close to nature as we will during this trek where the sub-tropics meet the temperate zone of Bhutan.
If you are looking to experience rural life in Bhutan and also enjoy the Himalayan scenery and the rich biodiversity of Bhutan, then the 6-day Nabji Korbu Trek is custom designed for you. It takes you to the central-Bhutanese district of Trongsa. You will trek at an elevation of 1,000 to 1,500 meters in warm and temperate weather. The region is home to the rare Golden Langur, Red Pandas, Himalayan Black Bears, Rhesus Monkeys, Rufous-necked Hornbills and Clouded Leopards, among others.
You will experience rural life when you spend your nights in the villages of Nabji, Korphu and Nyimshong. Beautiful paddy fields thong nabji village and people of Korphu are known for their hospitality. Visitors are often welcomed in the traditional chipdrel ceremony, which is a procession meant for VVIPs. The best time to embark on this trek is in winter, between October-April.
