Though tried and tested elsewhere, Heli-hiking in Bhutan was conceived by our Managing Director Tsewang while working for a different company. It remains to be an activity that Tsewang loves to promote as the activity can take you to remote parts and community – beauty and interaction that you could miss if not for the helicopter rides that you there.
Once you get the base camp of high Himalayan peaks without breaking a sweat, you could choose from number of hikes based on your pace.
