Dur Hot Springs Trek

Dur hot springs trek is particularly famous for its hot springs which are said to be the most beautiful natural springs in the Himalayas. Dur Tshachu is located in the Wangchuck Centennial Park & seven hot springs are in this region. The average temperature of the hot springs varies from 38 to 52 degrees Celsius.

Dur Hot Springs Trek – trails lead you through forests of cyprus, juniper, spruce, hemlock and maple, the route also offers opportunity to view interesting fauna such as Snow leopard, Bhutan Takin, Musk deer, Blue sheep, Tibetian wolf and Himalayan black bear.

Dur Hot Springs Trek is a very strenuous trek if undertaking the 8day/7night version (as per the details below.) For those who are not as super fit we would suggest extending this trek by one night making it an 9 day/8 night trek.

The best season for this trek is March to April and September to October.
