Trip Info

In eastern Bhutan the Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary, or Migoi National Park, covering 650km, was set up specifically to look after the Migoi (or Yeti Surveys are being carried out to determine how many species exist there; no Migoi have yet been spotted. Besides the Migoi National Park Migoi may be encountered between the Tang and Lhuntsi valleys (Rodang La).

This special cultural and nature trek of an isolated Merak & Sakteng recently opened in 2009. Until now a handful of tourists and researchers were permitted to this area with special permissions. This area was closed to protect the unique cultural heritage of this Brokpa people and in part to give the mythical Yeti some peace, whose tales of wandering in the valley is very popular among the natives. The Brokpas (highlanders) population of Merak and Sakten are semi-nomadic yak herder, who speak a different dialect and wear a completely different outfit from other Bhutanese.

This trek visits the isolated valleys of Merak (11,536 ft / 3517 m) and Sakteng (9709 ft / 2960 m), with a crossing of the Nyuksang La (Nyakchung La) (13,579ft/4140m). Allow some extra days so that you can make the most of this special area with its unique culture, rich history, and very friendly people.
