Overview:

Jomolhari Trek is longer than the Jomolhari Loop - the most popular trekking routes in Bhutan. With altitude differences of 2,500m and nearly 5,000m it offers a wide range of landscapes, fauna and flora. The highlight of this trek is the spectacular view of Mount Jomolhari from Jomolhari Basecamp (Jangothang).

            It takes you through unspoilt villages, in beautiful valleys which retain their ancient Tibetan Buddhist culture, and then climbs through ravishing virgin forest before emerging to high summer pastures at the foot of magnificent, sacred Jomolhari (or Chomolhari).  The route then crosses two high passes, passing two lonely dzongs (forts) in wild desolate landscape, before dropping back to the gentler delights of the cultivated valleys. See virgin forest, soaring peaks, ancient dzongs (forts), yak on the high pastures and Lammergaiers soaring high above. Cross high passes, surrounded by splendid desolation.

            Jomolhari Trek in Bhutan is a truly exploration journey for trekkers which also allows to visit typical remote of the eastern Himalayan range. After the trek your journet will continue again to visit cultural highlights in Thimpu before and end of the package.
