As International Women’s Day approaches (8 March), the Trans Bhutan Trail has announced an exciting new active tour just for women.

This exclusive 12-day trip, simply named Women’s Adventure, will follow in the footsteps of remarkable Bhutanese women, with travellers also able to explore the natural and historical landscape of the 250 mile Trans Bhutan Trail, reopening this spring after years of extensive restoration.

The carefully crafted itinerary will be led by local female tour guides, and will provide insight into the interesting Bhutanese matriarchal society. Guests will be able to see how the role of women has changed in relation to the country’s guiding philosophy of Gross National Happiness.

Activities on the tour include discovering traditional Bhutanese crafts, and a visit to two nunneries to meet the women and girls living there, and learn all about Nyingma Peling Buddhist traditions.

Additionally, guests will be able to explore the best food, fashion and wellness activities, which, of course, are inspired by local women.

Rigsang from the Trans Bhutan Trail said: “Women these days often have to juggle work and family, but while trying to strike a balance, they often forget to care for themselves. Connecting with Mother Nature helps them to heal and be at one with the natural world.

“Just as Mother Earth needs time to heal, being a woman from this generation, I would encourage women to take time off and dedicate themselves to self-care.

“Itineraries such as this one which focus on women provide an important space to connect with other women from different walks of life, and to form a network outside of work and family.”

The trips, which begin from September 2022, cost from £5,120pp and includes 11 nights’ hotel and lodge accommodation, all meals, transfers, guiding and excursions.
