Samtengang Trek

Samtengang Trek is one of the easier lower altitude treks in Bhutan. Samtengang trek is a short trek passing through villages in Punakha. This trek is most suited during winter when the climate is warm and moderate in Punakha and Wangduephodrang. It explores some of the beautiful forests, many remote historical and religious sites and isolated villages in and above the Punakha & Wangdi Valley. Weather permitting, it also offers stunning views of mountainous peaks including Jumolhari (7315m), Kang Bum Peak located above Gaza (6300m) and Tiger Mountain (Gangcheta 6840m) north of Laya. Some of the climbs may be steep and challenging. This trek is especially recommended in winter as there is the possibility of leeches on the trail during the remainder of the year.
