Jhomolhari Trek

This is a superb trek for strong walkers. It goes into northern Bhutan to the land of yak herders and to the base of Mt. Jhomolhari, at 7,316 meters (24,000 feet) and on to remote Lingshi Dzong. There are fabulous views of the mountains and flora and encounter with many yak-herders and few villages. The maximum altitude is 4,900meters (16,000 feet). The route enters Jigme Dorji National Park crossing through rocky trails through oaks, rhododendron and ferns, crossing several small streams. There are numerous short climbs and descents. You will pass through several villages: Soe, Takethang, Dangochang, each of its own kind. Dayin Jangothang is the highlight of the trek, views do not get any better than here. There are lots of hikes you can make and a Day here is spent very well. Lingzi is one of the old trade routes between Punakha and Gyantse in Tibet, and was used by the Tibetan armies during various attacks on Bhutan. This region has a wide variety of herbs, many of which have medicinal value. The trail traverses under big rocks and glacial valleys with numerous moraines. There are two versions of this trek; the shorter and easier version is a three-Day trek from Paro to Jhomolhari Base Camp at Jangothang, returning to Paro via the same route or by an alternative trail. The longer version crosses two high passes from Jangothang and makes it’s way to Thimphu.
