    Bhutan is a country that is on the cusp of great change. Our advice is to get yourself to the Buddhist Kingdom -- now. We used OneSeed Expeditions as our outfitter and took its Sacred Chomolhari trek and cultural tour -- and we couldn't be happier with our experience. There are few experiences that compare with walking ancient paths at high altitude. There's the enormity of the mountains, the solitude, the night skies with more stars than you thought possible, and fresh breakfasts (with French-pressed coffee, no less) in the warm sunshine. And then there's crossing 16,000-foot peaks marked by prayer flags wafting in the breeze. It's called the "sacred" Chomolhari for good reason. Our guide, Tenzin, was attentive and delighted in sharing his country's history and norms with us. And since he's a naturalist at heart, he could tell us about the flora, fauna and animal life we encountered on our way. Our cook should be on Top Chef; and our assistant guide was beyond kind. This is the kind of trip that is difficult to plan from home. With OneSeed, we didn't need to do any planning; it took care of all the details, both large and small. From the time we were met at the airport, our itinerary and activities were set. Beyond the trek itself, we enjoyed the Tiger's Nest monastery near Paro, and the cultural sites in Thimpu, including the chorten, the dzong/monastery, a nunnery where we meditated while the monks chanted their prayers, and the city's best straight-blade shave. We have many stunning photos from our trek and tour. Unfortunately, we got an error message when we tried uploading them to this review. Trust us, though, when we say OneSeed exceeded all expectations and helped make this a trip of a lifetime.

    I have taken trip trips with OneSeed, and each one has been great. My latest was to Bhutan. I was surprised when I was the only one on the trip. It is great the OneSeed guaranteed to the departure. I had the guide, cook, camp assistant,horse master, and horse assistant all to myself. They were all friendly and did everything they could to make my trip a success. Once the cook found out that I liked apples, he made sure that I had fresh apples, apple cake, and anything else he could think of cooking. The guide was fun and friendly. She taught me a great deal about Buddhism without being pedantic or boring. At 70, it was nice to be the only trekker, as I was able to set my own pace. The only problem was the weather, which was rotten. There was nothing anyone could have done about that, but

  2. Day 2: Paro (7,200ft/2195m). Time to check out the famous Tiger's Nest Temple. This hike will take around 6 hours in total and is well worth the climb. The temple was originally built in 1692 and is sure to take your breath away if the elevation hasn't already done so. Complete the hike and return to Paro for the evening.
  3. Day 3: Paro to Shing ka rap (9,744ft/2970m). Begin the trek! Most of the day will be a steading incline up toward the campsite. Follow the Paro river before reaching the campsite at Shing ka rap.
  4. Day 4: Shing ka rap to Thangthangka (11,909ft/3630m). The path today is undulating and will lead you through the conifer forest. Catch your first glimpse of the famous Mt. Jomolhari and settle into the campsite.
  5. Day 5: Thangthangka to Jangothang (13,419ft/4090m). Pass a yak herder settlement and an army post along the trail. Continue on to Jangothang.
  6. Day 6: Jangothang (13,419ft/4090m). Enjoy a rest day in Jangothang or head out for a short day hike to further acclimatize.
  7. Day 7: Jangothang to Lingshi (13,156ft/4010m). Climb up and over the first pass of the trail at Nyile-la, which reaches 16,043ft! After, continue the descent to Lingshi for the evening.
  8. Day 8: Lingshi (13,156ft/4010m). Rest day in Lingshi. Enjoy a day hike to Lingshi Dzong if you are feeling adventurous.
  9. Day 9: Lingshi to Shodu (13,484ft/4110m). Continue through the valley and onto Yeli-la pass at 15,813ft. Weather permitting, enjoy views of Mount Jomolhari, Mount Tsherimgang and Mount Masagang.
  10. Day 10: Shodu to Barshong (12,073ft/3680m). The trail winds up and down and crosses the river six times before retiring to Barshong
  11. Day 11: Barshong to Dolam Kencho (11,253ft/3430m). Descend through beautiful rhododendron forests to reach Dolam Kencho.
  12. Day 12: Dolam Kencho to Thimphu (7,656ft/2334m). Complete the descent to Dodina (8530ft). Meet your vehicle and drive 30 minutes to Thimphu.
  13. Day 13: Thimphu to Paro (13,156ft/4010m). Explore the city of Thimpu before returning to Paro. Check out temples, pick-up some local handicrafts, and explore Simtokha Dzong, Bhutan's first fort built in 1629.
