Introduction to Bhutan Jomolhari Trek

Bhutan Jomolhari Trek is one of the most popular trekking in Bhutan. There is very little tourist traffic on this trekking route.

Along with the magnificent landscape, this trekking also offers a rural community engraved with outstanding culture and a close view of amazing peaks.

The magnificent peaks, beautiful monasteries, thunderous waterfalls, turquoise lakes and streams, rolling meadows filled with wildflowers, remote villages, forests of rhododendrons, pine, juniper, and, fir provide the backdrop for this inspiring and challenging trekking in Bhutan.

Bhutan Jomolhari Trek starts from Drugyel Dzong and goes up to the high alpine through scattered hamlets and farmland, into a deep and richly forested valley. Bhutan Jomolhari Trek offers panoramic views of the snow-capped mountains such as Jomolhari, Jechu Darkey, Tserim Gang, and glaciers.

Colorful monasteries, prayer flags, places of cultural significance, cultural costumes, the lifestyle of the Bhutanese people, etc. make this trek even more exciting. Bhutan’s temples, monasteries, and Dzongs are truly artistic. There you will also have the opportunity to learn about the unique Buddhist culture prevalent.

Tiger’s Next Monastery – A Famous Monastery of Bhutan

Before starting Bhutan Jomolhari Trek visit Tiger’s Nest Monastery, the most famous and beautiful monastery in Bhutan. The next day we drive to Drukgyel Dzong from where our trekking starts. In the fascinating Paro Valley, we walk to the green rhododendron forests and follow the winding trail up the valley crossing the shiny glacial streams.

The view of the countryside becomes clearer and takes us to Jangothang where we set up camp near the sacred mountain of Jomolhari (7,326 m). Continuing towards Nyele-La (4,700m) we see views of the amazing Jichu Drake (6,794 m), Tshrim Khang, and, Lingzhi Dzong at the top of the hill.

Trekking from Lingzhi to Shodu is the hardest day where we cross the Yeli-La Pass (4,820m). The trek ends at Dodena and from there we drive to Thimphu.

Thank you a lot for your organization about my trek. It was a superb experience; all was perfect. Karma is a very nice person and a good guide. I appreciated trekking with Odyssey (a reliable Nepal trek operator). If I come back to Nepal, I will be happy to ask you to trek with me again. I am thinking about Annapurna or the Everest trek.

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.
