Why Trek with Us

Why Trek in Bhutan with Alpine Ascents?

Ben, Yeshey and the local support staff were all excellent and demonstrated effective leadership skills and full support to the hiking team at all times. In a typical for AAI manner there was a perfect balance between effective safe guiding, team management, and fun. They were extremely knowledgeable and shared loads of information about their experience in the mountains as well as the culture, history and traditions of Bhutan. Thanks a million to Ben and the entire team, they made the trip a real success and an amazing experience. -2019 Trekker
