Bhutan Druk Path Trek

Trek Highlights

Bhutan often amazes visitors from industrialized countries. This small kingdom, hidden in the Eastern Himalaya, is so traditional, so ancient and so completely culturally intact that it can seem almost unreal. Its pastoral valleys are still dominated by 16th century monasteries where red-robed lamas preside over the events of everyday life. In high mountain valleys, the main occupation is still yak herding. Few roads penetrate the country. The Bhutanese Government strictly restricts tourism to preserve the traditional ways, and to travel through this kingdom is a privilege and a chance to the peaceful way of life.

This is one of the shortest treks, which starts from Thimpu, the capital to the enchanting valley of Paro, across a 12,792 feet pass. The trail goes up through the forest to the monastery of Phajoding at an altitude of 11,152 feet, which overlooks the whole of Thimpu valley, leading to Jimilangtsho lakes.
