The Jhomolhari trek and the Druk Path trek are some of the most popular trekking routes among our guests. Camping on the Jhomolhari trek, one gets to admire a close up view of the majestic Jhomolhari Mountain Peak while sipping on a hot beverage and breathing clean fresh air.
The Jhomolhari trek is considered moderately challenging that sometimes passes across 4,500 meters above sea level. Mountaineering and climbing mountain peaks is however not allowed in Bhutan. This is because most Bhutanese consider mountain peaks as the abode of gods and deities.
The Druk Path trek will allow you to immerse yourself completely in the exquisite natural beauty of Bhutan, treating your eyes to the picturesque valleys, sublime lakes and crystal clear streams. It is a six day trek which lies in the wilderness of the capital city Thimphu and Paro.
