Samtegang Trek (4 days)

Day 1: Punakha – Limukha
(Distance 12km, four hours, 880m ascent, camp altitude 1,980m)
After passing the spectacular Punakha Dzong you cross the footbridge over the Pho Chhu and walk up to Shengana. The bridge to cross is the longest bridge in Bhutan. Climbing gradually through the forest you reach Limukha. Make sure you are carrying enough water as you won’t find any on the way to Limukha.

Day 2: Limukha – Chhungsakha
(Distance 14km, five hours, 430m descent, camp altitude 1,550m)
The path leads through rhododendron and oak forests to Chhungsakha. Chungsakha is a small village with about 10 houses. A holy stone and an impressive Cyprus tree are reminders of Drukpa Kuenley, the “divine madman”.

Day 3: Chhungsakha – Samtengang
(Distance 13km, five hours, 650m ascent, 270m descent, camp altitude 1,830m)
You walk downhill till you cross Pe Chhu. Climbing again you will pass the village of Sha on your way to Samtengang. Near the school in Samtengang you will see a small lake and your campsite is right next to it.

Day 4: Samtengang – Chhuzomsa
(Distance 15km, five to six hours, 730m descent)
The trail leads steeply downhill on a treeless slope to the road head at Chhuzomsa.
