DESCRIPTION:

Similarly to the Dodena Trek, the Jhomolhari Trek is one of the most famous in Bhutan. Stretching over a period of 9 days, this trek offers some of the most spectacular views of Mt. Jhomolhari (7,314m) and crosses a total of three high-altitude passes. Taking you all the way to the base camp of the mountain goddess Jhomolhari, you will come across two crystal-like high altitude lakes. Following the same route as the Dodena trek until Jhomolhari base camp, the Jhomolhari trek returns to Paro via the Bonte and Tagulun La passes. The Jhomolhari trek is demanding yet not strenuous. As one of the most popular treks in the Kingdom, it is easily accessible and requires only a fit and enthusiastic participant with some trekking experience.

Before and after the trek, we have arranged a brief tour of the western cultural centers of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha so that you may marvel at the beauty of Bhutanese architecture, religion and cultural traditions.

BEST TIME TO VISIT:

The best seasons to visit Bhutan are Spring and Autumn. During the months of March till May, the Kingdom enjoys beautiful days and moderately cold nights. Flowers are in full bloom and it is also a perfect time to go trekking. The months of September till the end of November are equally sunbathed. The autumn light is particularly clear compared to the Spring and provides a photographer’s paradise! Autumn and Spring are also the festival seasons where you can coincide your trip with one of them. See our festival page here for dates.
