The Nabji Trail brilliantly unfurls the kingdom’s postharvest/winter beauties as it serpentines through central Bhutan’s Jigme Singye Wangchuk National Park. On our six-day, low-altitude trek (never rising above 5000 feet or so), we’ll camp in high GeoEx style, looked after by our crack Bhutanese trekking crews, encountering a quintet of prosperous agricultural villages (example: Korphu, set on a vastly viewful ridgetop at just under a mile high, is a hamlet of 76 households). We’ll revel in extraordinary flora (species such as chir pine, wild orchid, and, in the springtime, blossoming rhododendron), rare fauna (perhaps catching a glimpse of the golden langur, one of the world’s rarest primates), and birds by the sky-full.

And, almost needless to say, we’ll have ample time off-trek to get acquainted with classic Bhutan locales like Paro and Thimphu, rounding out this trip’s typically Bhutanese soul-soothing.
