This varies between each valley. The lowest region in the south bordering India is around 450 m and the highest Himalaya peaks in the north, bordering China/Tibet, are over 7000 m.

Our happy and satisfied customers
Winter in Bhutan is also a dry, usually sunny & clear season so great for exploring and hiking. Mountain views are at their best and it is also lower in cost and usually with less tourist visitors. Both very good reasons to contemplate a visit at this time of year.
