Some essential issues,
Always check that your pack contains essential items such as your passport, money, eyewear, a change of clothing, hiking boots, and medications in your carry-on baggage. 
Gifts: Please don't bring extra gifts which might be a burden to you. If you wish to show your appreciation to the staff, the best gift would be through conversation or tips where appropriate.
Cultural Sensitivity: Women should wear pants (or Capri length pants) and/or a skirt (mid-calf or longer. Tights, hiking shorts, and sports tops are not advisable. For men, pants are best. Men may wear longer hiking shorts that come near the knees. Never go shirtless.
For women: Women are advised to bring their necessary health supplies with them, as such items might not be available in Bhutan.
Boots: Wear broken-in boots. To minimize the risk of a blister, wearing thin liner socks under regular hiking socks may help. 
Clothing: Cotton is the most favorable in warm weather. Once wet, cotton also drains body heat. Better to bring wool or synthetics such as Capilene, MTS, and Thermax. 
Layers: Always test your layers before a trip. See if the outer layer fits easily over the inside ones. 
Toilet Kit: For trekking & sightseeing, bring your own "toilet kit," and a small bottle of hand sanitizer. Always remember to discard the toilet tissue in a waste basket and not along a trail or in the toilet. 
Heating: In Bhutan, portable electric heaters are generally provided for heating rooms. Blankets are also provided. Bring an extra set of long underwear for extra warmth.
