Short day hikes surrounding Thimphu, Bhutan

For those fortunate enough to end up living in Thimphu, Bhutan or if your travel allows for some extra days to explore, here are a few gpx files of shorter day walks that are easy to fit into a weekend that I found on my phone.

Disclaimer: Some of the gpx files captured only portions of the hikes due to intermittent GPS signal and some have substantial bush bashing prior to finding the actual trails. So user beware!

There are many more day hikes than those listed here. I would recommend reading the online pdf ‘Mild and Mad Day Hikes around Thimpu’ by Piet van der Poel and Rogier Gruys.
