Introduction to Bhutan Druk Path Trek
Bhutan Druk Path Trek is also a popular trek in Bhutan. Druk Path Trek is a trek that cover the natural and cultural richness of Bhutan at once. Bhutan Druk Path Trekking is one of the most famous trekking for views of many remote lakes and is often recommended in Bhutan.
The trip starts from Paro, crosses the beautiful mountain view, and finishes at Thimphu. There are some settlements along the route and wonderful lakes full of fish. The area is famous for its rhododendron forests that bloom in May. In winter and clear weather, you can see the beautiful view of the high mountains.
During the Druk Path Trek, you will get a real taste of the local culture, customs, and traditions of Bhutan. Druk Path Trek offers countryside, excellent Himalayan views, alpine meadows, glacial lakes, and beautiful artistic monasteries.
Camps are set up along the clear mountain lakes, and you will enjoy the magnificent view of the peaks, including Jitchu Drake and Gangkar Puensum, on the border of Tibet. Along with the trekking, the visit to the ancient temples and Dzongs gives information about the unique culture and history of Bhutan.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
