Bhutan Black Mountain Trek
Bhutan Black Mountain Trek

Fully experience the Buddhist character, spectacular scenery and ancient trails of Bhutan. Join a small group of trekkers on a trek to a village near the remote Black Mountain. This area is newly opened to foreign trekkers, and the trails are sometimes steep, but this is one of the easier treks in Bhutan. You will not have issues of high altitude, cold temperatures or un-bridged stream crossings. You will, however, travel and camp in a remote part of the country. If you are unsure of your physical fitness for the trip, it is possible to reserve a mule for riding the uphill sections of the trail. Campfires will illuminate evenings likely to include villagers singing and dancing to honor your visit. We have scheduled this trip during the time of year with clearest skies for mountain viewing. The trek includes rich natural habitat where you will encounter rufous-necked and great hornbills, golden langurs and numerous other species of birds and animals in Bhutan’s virgin subtropical forests. This region is especially rich in myths and legends about the bygone times when gods and saints lived in Bhutan and left their marks on the landscape, ancient structures and especially in Bhutanese culture and tradition. You’ll spend several days hiking through Monpas communities. These hospitable and welcoming people, though extremely isolated, are among the oldest of all Himalayan cultures and only a few thousand of these people remain on earth. This may be the best chance of your life to transcend the reality of your usual existence on a journey to other realms and other times while still here on earth. Our inaugural trek on this route in November 2006 was a complete success, and we are pleased to provide references of participants on that trip.

Hemingway Safari
Hemingway Safari

Combine a full immersion in remote, wild, animal rich Botswana with the full comforts of luxury camps, superb meals and an exclusive lodge. The itinerary takes you right to the heart of the very most spectacular sanctuaries of the Okavango area by private charter aircraft, in only a fraction of the time required by a land-only safari. While on the ground, you will travel in open-sided Land Cruisers in a small group of two to eight people. Your naturalist guide on the safari may be able to locate rare wild dogs that hunt in Moremi Park, and you will also have the chance to see the famed elephant and buffalo herds of the Linyati area. The full drama of Africa unfolds before you. But you observe in comfort. Hemingway would approve.

Chomolhari Trek
Chomolhari Trek

This trek is our interpretation of the classic trek route in Bhutan. Winding its way up through the foothills, up a sheer valley, past ancient monastery fortresses and crossing two passes, the trail reaches Chomolhari Base camp at 13,251’ above sea level. Bhutan is sparsely populated and highly traditional, giving you both a sense of contact with antiquity and the spirit of the high peaks.
